Holidays in Northern Ireland
Holidays to Northern Ireland
Take a holiday to Northern Ireland and discover the home to breath taking scenery, from the world heritage site of the Giants Causeway in County Antrim, to the walled City of Derry, overlooking the imposing River Foyle. It is hard to believe that this amazing land is only 1 and a half hour from London when you travel with easyJet holidays. Northern Ireland has the unusual distinction of providing wild and untrammelled countryside, whilst being sufficiently compact to allow visitors to take in the joys of each county during their stay.
Holiday to Northern Ireland for a cultural odyssey
Belfast is a vibrant city with boutique hotels and plenty of Irish hospitality. It was the birthplace of the ill–fated Titanic and possesses the cultural highlights of the Ulster Museum, Belfast Castle and the world famous City Hall. With its colourful nightlife and convivial atmosphere, Belfast provides a perfect jumping off point to explore the more rural side of Northern Ireland. Find more information on Belfast holidays here.
Following the Causeway Coastal Route between Belfast and Derry allows visitors to take in breathtaking scenery, including the Giant’s Causeway, Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge, Dunluce Castle and White Rocks Beach. For those who have a little more time on holiday in Northern Ireland, take a meander from the main path to visit Torr Head or Rathlin Island. Arriving in Derry at the end of the route you won’t be disappointed by the finest walled city in Europe, dating from 1613-18.
Northern Ireland holidays are also a perfect for those who enjoy a bit of outdoor thrill seeking. For a gentle start, take in some golf or fishing as you travel along the Causeway Coastal Route. Once warmed up, why not try surfing the North Coast’s waves or zorbing in the Sperrins Mountains, (involves hurtling downhill in a human-sized hamster ball!) There are also many activity centres that can organise trips to suit your tastes, for example, canoeing Fermanagh’s lakes or enjoying some proper off-road mountain biking. Alternatively, Lough Neagh, the largest lake in the British Isles, has a more sedate 113 miles of cycle track, perfect for families. Children will also love the Exploris Aquarium and seal sanctuary at Portaferry in County Down.
Back in Belfast you can relax with a pint of the ‘blackstuff’ and enjoy the ‘craic’ in a traditional bar such as the Crown Liquor Saloon or John Hewitt, before hitting the clubs, many of which are on the circuit of big name DJs.
