The craggy coastline, mountains that sweep down to the sea, rolling glens and winding rivers are all part of Northern Ireland’s unique beauty
Scintillating Northern Ireland scenery
It’s amazing to witness the variety of landscapes that Northern Ireland has to offer – you could almost just sit and watch the world go by, such is the enjoyment that sightseeing alone can bring. But it would be a tragedy not to get out into the wide open spaces and make the most of what the beautiful Northern Ireland countryside has to offer. For adventure lovers, the coastine offers thrills and spills with watersports or rock climbing. Or take it more gently with a cycling holiday or walking tour through some of the most beautiful and well-kept routes in Europe.
Northern Ireland gives time to think
What really makes a holiday in Northern Ireland is the chance to leave the hustle and bustle behind and give yourself some time to experience life at a slower pace. Mere moments travelling outside of Northern Ireland’s bigger cities and towns brings you to spectacularly beautiful glens, stretches of golden sand as far as the eye can see, or to the foot of softly undulating hills just waiting to be conquered. The only thing what will cause you any frustration is trying to work out whether you take your time or try to do as much as possible!
In touch with the past
You’ll discover the true heart of Northern Ireland buried within the limitless treasures waiting to be encountered throughout the glorious landscapes. Take a trip into ancient legend at Navan Fort, a hilltop fort that as Emain Macha was the ceremonial and spiritual capital of ancient Ulster. Or discover life in the big houses at Mount Stewart House, set on the shores of Strangford Lough and home to some magnificent gardens. There’s nothing to rival a trip around the walls of Londonderry, which stretch around the city and offer wonderful views over the graceful River Foyle. Whichever route your choose, the warmth and friendliness of the welcome in Northern Ireland will be with you along the way.
