Enchanting Northern Ireland

Whether you’re enticed by its spectacular surroundings and wealth of natural beauty or you’re looking to immerse yourself in its inescapable culture, you’ll quickly fall in love with holidays to Northern Ireland. A short hop from the UK, you’ll be welcomed to a diverse and fascinating destination catering for a variety of tastes.

From the heart of the city in bustling Belfast to the idyllic island of Rathlin, there are plenty of attractions to capture your imagination – whether you’re an adventure-seeking daredevil or a culture vulture. Traverse stunning landscapes by foot or by bike, or explore its many castles and fortifications. Whatever you choose to do on your Northern Ireland holidays, you can be rest-assured that your trip will be utterly memorable.

Historic Surroundings

With surroundings so picturesque they even gained a spot as the filming location of Game of Thrones, it’s no surprise that the main allure of Northern Ireland holidays is in its stunning mountains and beautiful coastal views. Head to East Strand Beach for camera-worthy views of the Causeway headlands or make the most of a rare bout of sunshine with a swim in Ballyholme.

With a rich history of over 9000 years, you’ll find plenty of historical attractions to explore – from the formidable stronghold at Carrickfergus Castle to the mysterious Beaghmore Bronze Age Circles that serve as a reminder of the country’s colourful past. If you’re interested in stepping back in time, head to Londonderry, where you’ll be met with the prominent sight of St Columb’s Cathedral built in 1633 – a must-visit for any keen historian.

Northern Ireland has a long and established maritime history, with an array of attractions serving as commemorations. Visit the Belfast Barge, minutes from the city centre, housing a vibrant interactive museum which tells the story of Belfast’s relationship with the sea. A short walk will bring you to the birthplace of the Titanic. Embark on a discovery tour and walk in the footsteps of the men who designed the ill-fated ship or catch a glimpse of some of the genuine artefacts salvaged from the wreck.

Of course, holidays to Northern Ireland are not complete without a visit to the mythical Giant’s Causeway. Steeped in mystery, some say it was carved from the coast by a mighty giant. Look out for clues of his existence – including The Giant’s Boot and Wishing Chair.
