For such a small country, Northern Ireland has a lot to offer.
Belfast is a smaller city than Dublin but it offers just as much fun. In the past 20 or so years the city has truly changed it’s character from a stodgy shipbuilding colossus, to a vibrant, buzzing city that is fast becoming the place that Europeans head to for a weekend of great food and drink. Restaurants focused on local ingredients are popping up everywhere.
Of course there’s so much more to Northern Ireland than Belfast. Along the south coast you have the Irish Sea, the Mourne Mountains, some beautiful beaches and fun towns. The Coastal Causeway (shown above) is one of the world’s greatest driving routes. On a clear day you can see Scotland but why bother looking when you have vistas like that above. The Antrim Coast offers several ‘can’t miss’ attractions.
