More on Northern Ireland
Belfast, Northern Ireland’s largest city and a major port located at the mouth of the River Lagan, is a buzzing area of the country, with over seven million people visiting here each year! The city is well-known for its Titanic Belfast, a world-famous monument and tourist attraction to Belfast’s maritime heritage on the site of the former Harland & Wolff shipyard in the city’s Titanic Quarter, where the RMS Titanic was built in 1911.
There are over 5,000 acres of park across this magnificent city, including the Botanic Gardens, a popular public park which occupies 28 acres of south Belfast. The city also boasts a handful of museums and cathedrals, Belfast Zoo and Belfast Castle, a 19th century hilltop landmark on the slopes of Cavehill Country Park, for you to explore on your Northern Ireland holiday. Why not visit the Grand Opera House on your Irish getaway or cultured city break?
There’s no shortage of things to do on a holiday here, with its vibrant food and music scene, so make sure to browse the holiday homes and apartments in and around buzzing Belfast across the Travelopo portfolio!
While Northern Ireland’s capital city is hugely popular amongst tourists, various other cities entice visitors throughout the year, including Lisburn, on the River Lagan and Newtownabbey, a major urban area on the outskirts of north Belfast.
Lisburn is known for its variety of churches in particular, with over 100 to boast of! Why not take a picnic to Wallace Park on your Ireland holiday, or visit the city’s museum? Or enjoy the views from quaint White Abbey shoreline village in the Newtownabbey borough for the ultimate peaceful afternoon…
Or choose Londonderry (Derry) for your Northern Ireland holiday, known for its well-preserved 17th century city walls, iconic Peace Bridge and impressive St Columb’s Cathedral. Make sure to visit the beautiful Guildhall in the heart of the city and make the most of Derry’s great museums, including the Museum of Free Derry and the Tower Museum.
Discover the town of Ballymena on your Northern Ireland holiday, located in County Antrim, an area scattered with historic buildings. Slemish Mountain, the legendary first known Irish home of Saint Patrick, lies a few miles east of Ballymena too! Or venture to the large town of Coleraine on your Ireland break, the main town of the Causeway Coast.
Northern Ireland is famous for the Giant’s Causeway, an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, which came about as a result of an ancient volcanic eruption around 60 million years ago. As Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site, the site is a hugely popular tourist attraction in Country Antrim, on the north-east coast! The Giant’s Causeway is a must-see on your Northern Ireland holiday…
The Mourne Mountains are also a spectacular sight, as an impressive, granite mountain range in Country Down in the south-eat. The range includes the highest mountains in the country, peaking at 850 metres high.
This beautifully green country is also home to Lough Neagh, the largest freshwater lake (by area) in the British Isles, supplying a significant amount of the country’s water. Despite five of its six countries touching its shores, the lake is not too easily viewed – so make sure to plan your way around admiring, cycling around and boating this natural beauty!
Nature-lovers should also head to Tollymore Forest Park on their Northern Ireland holiday, located near the town of Newcastle, Country Down. The park offers a blissful day of exploring, from sunrise to sunset, with magnificent landscapes and bridges, caves and grottoes on show!
The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge is another landmark and must-see in Northern Ireland! This infamous bridge is suspended almost 100ft above sea level near Ballintoy, County Antrim. Make sure to cross the rope bridge on your Ireland holiday, which connects the mainland to the tiny island of Carrickarede!
From fantastic museums (including two open-air museums) to spectacular coastal drives, Northern Ireland is the perfect base for exploring – and you’ll often find yourself adventuring away from the bustling tourist crowds too! Make sure to discover the diversity of scenic hikes across Northern Ireland’s low-lying mountains ranges and vast green spaces on your holiday.
Northern Ireland’s climate is influenced by the effects of the Atlantic Ocean, with mild winters and cool summers. The hottest month here is typically July with the temperature averaging 20*C.
