Holidays to Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is a place of fantasy landscapes - made ever more popular after being the filming sites for much of Game of Thrones. Why not dine in a world- class restaurant or find plenty of Craic & Ceol (Fun & Music) in one of the local pubs. Where you will definitely find yourself making new friends; as W.B Yeats said, "there are no strangers here! Just friends you have not yet met."

Northern Ireland's capital, Belfast may be a small but don't let the size fool you. Once the home of the Irish linen industry, tobacco production, rope making and the world famous Harland and Wolff whose workers built the ill-fated Titanic, Belfast lays claim to a unique history.

And there's something for everyone to love - take a tour and explore the city, taking in the famous buildings like Queens University , Belfast City Hall, Stormont and the famous wall paintings (murals) depicting the different communities political beliefs. Immerse yourself in culture by visiting museums and galleries; shop in the award winning St Georges Market which sells many locally produced epicurean delights. We would recommend visiting the Castle with our local guide, for breath-taking views of the city. We can arrange private tours of the Titanic Visitor Experience or Hillsborough Castle, the Queen's official Northern Ireland residence.

No visit to Northern Ireland would be complete without a tour of the Giant's Causeway. Located on the northern coast, the Giant's Causeway is an incredible landscape of geometric columns that were formed as a result of volcanic activity over 60 million years ago. Some, however, prefer the story that these stones are the remains of the bridge that the giant, Finn McCool, built linking Ireland to Scotland. After your tour, explore Old Bushmill's, this distillery has been producing whisky for over 400 years and yet little has changed in the process. The distillery still uses the same traditional methods to create some of Ireland's finest whisky and now welcomes visitors to have an insight into the techniques that make their whisky so smooth and rich. If you are lucky, their resident ghost the Grey Lady may even pop up to say hello!
