What to do in Northern Ireland

Your trip can start in Belfast, capital of Northern Ireland, which has numerous attractions and activities for all ages. For example, the iconic Titanic Museum, the beautiful City Hall that offers free tours throughout the day, the historic Queen's University and the Ulster Museum which is located in the Belfast Botanical Gardens and has several exhibits.

One of the postcards of Northern Ireland is the Giant's Causeway in English, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The place is a set of rocks of more than 40 thousand prismatic columns that have developed over the years due to the volcanic activities in the region. A unique landscape that is worth the visit!

And, of course, Northern Ireland's numerous castles are beautiful and steeped in history. Some of the best known are Carrickfergus Castle, dating from 1180, and Dunluce Castle, which offers a beautiful view of the Irish coast.
