Living your Game of Thrones fantasy meets discovering some Titanic history
Hey there! Welcome to Northern Ireland. This portion of the UK may be cut off from the rest by water, but don’t let that stop you from visiting. The capital city, Belfast, has made an incredible recovery in recent years. Once battle scarred from the troubles (the civil war that divided Ireland, and ended in the Good Friday agreement in 1999), Belfast hasn’t taken long to bounce back. There are beautiful Victorian buildings galore, as well as a world-class restaurant scene and plenty of great music and art. What more could a city slicker on tour desire? Outside the city there are seemingly endless hikes, and the mind-blowing Giant’s Causeway, often used in film and TV for unearthly landscapes. Add to that castles, lochs, mountain biking and a couple of open air museums and what more could a visitor want? If you’re looking for a green and verdant wonderland, with the option of modern city living, VISIT NORTHERN IRELAND!
