Northern Ireland - your perfect winter break

Northern Ireland is the ultimate short break destination with so much to see and do in a compact area.  From the vibrant, continuously evolving city of Belfast to the UNESCO world heritage site of the Giant’s Causeway, as well as hidden gems in between, there’s more to Northern Ireland than you might expect and now’s the perfect time to visit.  

Titanic Quarter

Uncover the true legend of Titanic, in the city where it all began with a visit to Belfast’s Titanic Quarter. Titanic Belfast Visitor Experience spans nine interactive galleries where you can experience the excitement of the ship’s launch day, walk the decks, explore the shipyard as well as travel to the depths of the ocean on a Titanic discovery. Nearby, and included in the Titanic Belfast ticket, visit the world’s last remaining White Star vessel and RMS Titanic’s original tender ship - SS Nomadic. The room where the Titanic plans were drawn up is now a magnificent hotel, and the ideal spot for some lunch in the area.

Foodie heaven

A distinct food culture has developed in Northern Ireland, with a focus on the very best local ingredients. From the bustling St. George’s Market in Belfast to Michelin star restaurants, Northern Ireland will always excite your taste buds. Join a food tour to meet local producers and sample the culinary highlights, ranging from handmade teas and chocolate to freshly baked breads. Don’t forget to pop by some local distilleries too where you can sip on a Jawbox Gin, Belfast Blonde or warm up with a hot Bushmills whiskey. Alternatively, take to the ocean with a local fisherman on a catch and cook course on the Causeway Coast.

The Causeway coastal route

North of Belfast take the scenic route along the coast to discover spectacular coastline, picturesque villages and breath-taking views. The full route can be done in a day but is best explored over a couple, taking time to enjoy a stay along the route.  Highlights of the route include the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, swaying 100ft about the sea and of course, the world-famous Giant’s Causeway. Take time to explore the Giant’s Causeway with one of the great coastal path walks to experience the best of this UNESCO heritage site, before cozying up by the fireside in a pub.

The Mourne Mountains

In County Down you’ll find Northern Ireland’s largest mountain range, which boast amazingly spectacular scenery. Newcastle is the perfect place to base yourself for a couple of nights with lots to explore in the surrounding areas. This bustling town is where you’ll find the Mourne Mountains sweep down to the sea and here you can relax after a walk in the mountains or forest paths with a seaweed bath or a delicious dinner in one of the many excellent food spots.

Game of Thrones®

Discover Game of Thrones® territory in Northern Ireland - one of the key filming locations for the show. With majestic ruins, ancient lands, dark forests and towering cliffs peppering the landscape you’ll see why Northern Ireland was selected as the backdrop of this global TV phenomenon.  You can either take an organised tour or explore the locations yourself, stopping at Castle Ward Estate (Winterfell), The Dark Hedges (Kingsroad) and Cushendun Caves (The Stormlands) and many more.
