LOVE is in the air across the North Coast this weekend as it has been named Northern Ireland’s Top Romantic Spot in a search by leading local convenience brand Centra, supported by Tourism NI.

The picturesque location which boasts stunning beaches, dramatic scenery and some of Northern Ireland’s most popular tourist destinations, has captured the hearts of people who have nominated it as Centra’s Top Romantic Spot.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the online search gave people across Northern Ireland the chance to share their favourite romantic locations and the North Coast, which includes the Giant’s Causeway, Mussenden Temple and White Park Bay, came out on top.

Centra’s Interim Brand Manager, Jennifer Morton said: “Centra is delighted to announce the North Coast as its Top Romantic Spot in Northern Ireland. As we approach Valentine’s Day, this was a really popular choice amongst our voters and highlights a fantastic destination for couples.

“With the support of Tourism NI, as well as our 80 independent retailers across every region, it has been wonderful to see so many people tell us their favourite Top Spots and what they love about Northern Ireland,” she added.

Rachel Quigg, Tourism NI’s Communications and Destination PR Officer said: “The North Coast has so much to offer and I’m delighted it has been named Centra’s Top Romantic Spot.

“From romantic walks on the award-winning beaches, scenic drives along the Causeway Coastal Route to visiting the many popular tourist attractions, the North Coast really does have something for couples of all ages,” she added.

One lucky winner of the Centra Top Romantic Spot search was selected at random, winning a £200 Hastings Hotel voucher and a Centra voucher each.
