Combining some of Europe’s wildest and most awe-inspiring nature, lively cities with exciting food scenes and historic attractions, Northern Ireland holidays are something very special indeed. You could easily dedicate an entire trip to any one of Northern Ireland’s six counties, but the best way to enjoy the area is to travel around, exploring as much as you can.
Head to the Mourne Mountains in County Down, the Sperrins in Tyrone and Derry, the north Antrim coast for the world-famous Giant’s Causeway, or venture southwest to Fermanagh to see the limestone Marble Arch Caves. Whichever direction you head in, the natural scenery is astonishing. If it’s city life you’re after, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to holidays in Northern Ireland.
Making the most of Northern Ireland’s fertile land, capital city Belfast has an eclectic food scene and a range of brilliant bars, cafés and restaurants, not to mention a buzzing atmosphere thanks to its large student population. Second city Derry – also called Londonderry – is equally lively, its city walls providing spectacular panoramic views, while smaller Armagh is noted for its historic architecture. On holidays to Northern Ireland you can expect rugged scenery, excellent nights out, fantastic food and drink and, most importantly, masses of unforgettable memories.
