What doesn’t Antrim have to offer? This northern county is home to the vibrant Belfast city, the unforgettable hexagonal landscape of the Giant’s Causeway, the delectable Bushmills whiskey distillery, and so much more. Road trip along the Northern coastline to take in the quaint seaside towns, rocky inlets, sweeping beaches, and crumbling castles, then come back to the ‘big smoke’ of Ulster (that’s Belfast by the way) for culture, culinary delights, and plenty of craic.

County Derry is one of the most up and coming places in all of Ireland, not least because of it’s crowning glory, the city of Derry itself. Walk along the medieval walls of the city (one of the best examples of its kind in all of Europe), get a feel for the troubled past with a wander through the Bogside area, and investigate the impressive architecture of the Guildhall and the city’s two cathedrals.
The rural retreat of Fermanagh, surrounded by farmlands, misty hills and glassy lakes, is nothing short of paradise. The peaceful landscape of Lough Erne and the sleepy town of Enniskillen are perfect for indulging in some rest and relaxation, and while you’re at it you can shop for some beautiful and unique Belleek pottery. Made here in the town of the same name since 1857, it makes the perfect keepsake or souvenir for a loved one.
Topped by the glistening Lough Neagh in the north and the green fields of the Republic in the south, Armagh is a rural haven of outdoor adventures. Trek up Slieve Gullion, the highest point in the county, catch some fish in the largest lake in Ireland and the UK, explore the charming Ulster towns scattered across the county, and throw in some retail therapy in the shopping mecca of Newry for good measure.
