With its bewitching landscapes, medieval castles, maritime history and Irish charm, Northern Ireland is a mystical land where fantasies do come true. You can easily get lost in its rolling hills, sprawling coastlines and fun-loving culture.
The stunning coastline, sand dunes, golf courses and picturesque villages that make up Causeway Coast are beautifully nostalgic. Take a short drive west to sample the finest whiskey at Bushmills Distillery on your way to the medieval ruins of Dunluce Castle. The sheer cliffs around the coast lead you to the perilous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge – it is not for the faint-hearted, cross if you dare!
The UNESCO landmark - Giant’s Causeway – is a unique creation of basalt layers formed by a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago. On a clear day, you can even see Scotland in the far distance!
Another scenic wonder is the Nine Glens of Antrim. Stretching between Ballycastle and Larne, the scenic trail takes you through forest trails, plunging waterfalls and beautiful lakes.
Van Morrison’s hometown, Belfast, is a hub of history, culture and art. Take a bus tour and see the sights of this bustling capital, including Ulster Hall. Watch a ballet or play at the premier Victorian Grand Opera House. Tours of Crumlin Road Gaol and the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum make for an interesting day out. Don’t miss a guided tour of the Titanic Belfast, a star-shaped landmark tracing Belfast’s maritime history and the memorable story of the Titanic.
Roam the famous stone walls of Derry and discover the city’s history at the Tower Museum.
