Five reasons you should visit Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland offers a diversity of attractions that frequently confounds first-time visitors. Rejuvenated and irrepressible, Belfast now rivals any of the UK’s capital cities, but in addition, the country manifests superb natural heritage – including one of the world’s great coastal road trips – remarkable cultural treasures, outdoor activities in abundance, and an increasingly vibrant food and music scene.

  1. Barely recognizable from the battle-scarred city of the 1970s and 80s, Belfast is today a bona fide city-break destination, no question. Stately Victorian buildings and a rich industrial heritage hark back to the city’s glorious past, but really, it’s the revitalized restaurant scene, some rocking nightlife and a raft of excellent festivals that all serve to confirm Belfast’s welcome renaissance.
  2. If you’ve found yourself binging Game of Thrones, you’ll love a tour of the filming locations! An interesting fact about Northern Ireland is that it is home of Game of Thrones. 
  3. One of Northern Ireland’s most photographed areas, this avenue of beech trees was planted in the 18th century and makes for some epic snaps! They even made it to Game of Thrones!
  4. This wouldn’t be a list of the best places to visit in Northern Ireland without mentioning that famous rope bridge. Built by fishermen over 250 years ago, this 20-metre rope bridge connects mainland Northern Ireland to the tiny island of Carrickarede.
  5. The Giant’s Causeway is a UNESCO world heritage site that makes your mind battle over science and legends. The rocks, made from volcanic eruptions 60 million years ago, make for some pretty epic pictures and have stunning views across the northern coastline.
