The wrongfully overlooked member of the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland has quietly become an exciting travel destination in its own right. A diverse nation, popular both with nature enthusiasts and city-dwelling travelers, the country is no longer just for those seeking ancient fairytale legends but now also welcomes those looking to live it up in modern cities undiscovered by many globe trotters.
Belfast is home to some beautiful historic sites -- such as Belfast Castle and City Hall. As the construction site of the ill-fated Titanic, there is a museum dedicated to the history of the ship, as well as an entire Titanic Quarter, an urban regeneration project that has made Belfast's waterfront a booming location for culture.
When it comes to getting outdoors, a favorite location for the majority of Northern Ireland visitors is the Giant's Causeway on the northern coast. The causeway is a bizarre geological feature where some 40,000 octagonal stone columns interlock with each other. Nearby, tourists find thrills at the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. This traditional rope bridge links the mainland with a tiny offshore island, the bridge itself sways slightly in the wind as adventurers cross 100-feet above the rocky Atlantic waters below.
Outside of Belfast, Londonderry, sometimes referred to just as 'Derry', is likely the second most popular city to visit in Northern Ireland. A good mix of historical buildings and modern marvels, Derry's riverside setting becomes a favorite spot amongst anyone willing to make the journey up there.
Belfast is the logical place to start and finish a trip to Northern Ireland as accomodations options are plentiful and transportation to other parts of the nation are more accessible here.
As with much of the United Kingdom, visitors have to expect a few overcast days when coming to visit Northern Ireland. Summer is the safest time to visit as temperatures are moderate and the rains are not at their peak.
