Northern Ireland Travel Guide: 2,128 reviews and 5,858 photos

When I used to think of Northern Ireland, the troubles in Belfast would always pop up. That's all you used to hear in the media so that's what most people think. I met an amazing girl from Northern Ireland and she showed me pretty much everything in two months and boy is there more than just conflict! I hope this page makes you visit, it is a beautiful country with a lot to offer!

A great country to drive through

I had the pleasure of being chauffeured by my girlfriend around this beautiful country, but if you ever visit and don't have someone wonderful to drive you around, try to rent a car. Bus trips are good too but not as much freedom. The scenery is beautiful - rolling hills and crashing waves on the coast .

The beaches of Northern Ireland

Before I arrived in Northern Ireland, I was traveling in South East Asia. There were magnificent white sand beaches and hot weather and when I got to Norn Irn, I was ready for the cooler temperatures. Well, cooler weather is what I got but there are surprisingly nice beaches as well! Make sure you make it to the coasts and check them out!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful landscapes, great accents!
  • Cons:Doesn't get too warm here.....
  • In a nutshell:Stunning coasts, Places to hike, a must when in the UK!

    Beautiful photos though I think it's nearly impossible to take an ugly photo anywhere in Ireland. I like your N. Ireland vocabulary list as well-I just love those Belfast accents.
