Home to some of Europe’s most famous sights such as the Giant’s Causeway and the newly opened Titanic Museum, the always-buzzing Belfast which is famed for its welcoming people and nightlife, as well as one of the world’s most breathtaking coastlines, no trip to Europe is complete without visiting Northern Ireland.
With scenery and landscapes which certainly rival those anywhere in Europe, there is no better time to visit. Leave it too late and the rugged beauty which can only be found in places which tourists have yet to invade will be long gone. The wonderful Glens of Antrim, Mountains of Mourne, Lakelands of Fermanagh and Giant’s Causeway will leave you spellbound but explore the lesser known areas too.
As well as the natural attractions, however, you will also discover a host of various museums, folk parks, craft centres and other facilities designed to promote and preserve Northern Ireland’s unique heritage. Scattered throughout each of the six counties (Antrim, Armagh, Derry, Down, Fermanagh and Tyrone) each and every one is well worth a visit and because the area of Northern Island is so small, about five and a half thousand square miles, it is quite possible to get to each county without putting yourself under too much pressure. Now all you have to do is plan your itinerary.
