NorthernIreland Travel Guide

by our United Kingdom expert Terry Emery
Terry EmeryJust remember that when you get to the north of Northern Ireland, if you go further north you’re in the south (Eire). Now you know you’re talking Ireland. ‘The Six Counties’ as the province is sometimes known, contain some of the loveliest coast in the British Isles (Antrim), tremendous golf courses such as Portrush (but take your waterproofs), an historic walled city (Derry aka Londonderry), the thriving industrial city of Belfast (that launched the Titanic, built the first flying-boats, and is now re-inventing itself as a modern IT and electronics centre). There are beautiful lakes to cruise (Fermanagh), you can actually see where the Mourne Mountains sweep down to the sea, and you can tread in legendary Finn McCool’s footsteps on the Giant’s Causeway (and venture over a nearby narrow Rope Bridge to Carrick Island if you’re as brave as him). But for all the wonderful sights, for many visitors the outstanding memory is of the warmth and friendliness of the people and probably a couple of hours of great conversation, ‘the craic’, in a warm pub, with people whom you only met when you walked in.
