AONBs in Ireland

Many parts of Ireland are regarded as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs), yet only eight of these have been officially designated as such. All of Ireland's official AONBs are located in Northern Ireland. They are:

  Antrim Coast & Glens AONB

  Binevenagh AONB

  Causeway Coast AONB

  Lagan Valley AONB

  Mourne AONB

  Ring of Gullion AONB

  Sperrin AONB

  Strangford & Lecale AONB

Some of these areas (either in part or in their entirety) are currently being considered for upgrade to national park status.
