Days out in Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland, home to hip cities, epic coastlines and some of the UK’s top natural wonders.

From the spectacular World Heritage Site of the Giant’s Causeway in County Antrim to Dunlace Castle, home to the Games of Thrones studio tour, there’s all sorts to discover around here.

If it’s castles you’re into, Hillsborough Castle, Northern Ireland’s majestical royal residence, hosts fascinating talks, tours and workshops. Not to mentions its stunning gardens.

Belfast is home to the highly acclaimed Titanic Experience - all aboard, we can assure you, this one won’t sink!

And once you’re done for the day, you’ve got a whole load of digs to choose from. Our pick? The Old Bushmills Barn on the tip of the island. It’s as breathtaking as the Giant’s Causeway, which is just 4km away. Lovely stuff.
