Harmony of Central Europe - Insight Vacations

Northern Ireland

A land of sensational landscapes, Northern Ireland boasts sweeping forests, glacial valleys and artistic traditions. As soon as you set eyes on the vista offerings, you’ll understand why its wild landscape played host to many scenes from HBO’s Game of Thrones.

You can’t travel to Northern Ireland and not take in one of the country’s most iconic sights, Giant’s Causeway. Clinging along a 195 mile stretch of coastal road from Londonderry to Belfast, the enticing Causeway Coast is one of Europe’s most celebrated natural wonders and is a popular road trip route thanks to its cinematic cliffscapes.

Northern Ireland has enjoyed rejuvenation in recent years, and nowhere more so than its capital, Belfast. Besides its famous nightlife, this colourful city is home to friendly people, historic landmarks, charming eateries and top attractions. Head to a pub and savour the sounds of traditional music while you try out the local ale.

The weather in Northern Ireland can be notoriously unpredictable (so be sure to pack for variety), but the welcome is warm, the views are breathtaking and the traditions exciting. So whether you want to explore fairytale-worthy landscapes or discover the birthplace of the Titanic, Northern Ireland certainly has a little magic for you to uncover.
