Depart Queen’s leafy south Belfast streets
And dive into the Titanic Quarter, the Titanic launch spot, and bask in the reflections of the Titanic Building
Before trekking to Carrick (Carrickfergus) and the 800-year-old Norman castle. Bridges, crashing waves, sunken caves and sheer cliff faces await at The Gobbins: more cliff than The Shadows ;)
The Vanishing Lake
Slide on shades and take a dreamy drive through the Nine glens. Shades off, look for Loughareema, a Vanishing Lake;
Warm sun on your face, at the beautiful horse-shoe bay at Carnlough, leg it up the Waterfall walk at Queen of the Glens, Glenariff, to grab a quick snap.
The giant's Causeway
A must not miss attraction
The Giant’s Causeway is a natural arrangement of 40,000 basalt columns running into the wild Atlantic Ocean. It’s an otherworldly place, both magical and fascinating. The only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland and awarded the UKs Best Heritage Attraction at the British Travel Awards, 2015.
Play hide and seek in the Dark Hedges
The stunning location from Game of Thrones in Stanocum, County Antrim. After, visit Dunluce Castle (keep your hoodie handy)
a ruined fortress perched spectacularly on a windy cliff face. Check the forecast: at the right time of year the Aurora Borealis lights up the sky.
This single-hand, rope-bridge tends… to… SWAY!
Erected by hoary fishermen in 1755, it’s one of only two spots in Northern Ireland that’s a ‘Dark Sky Discovery’ star-gazing site. Telescopic.
Cover your head
Rathlin Island, is home to Northern Ireland’s largest seabird colony
Crest waves on the way and take a Sea safari to spot porpoises and dolphins. Ballintoy Harbour is a charming array of small shops to stop and chat with the locals.
