   Why visit Northern Ireland? 

Many people know that the Titanic was built in Belfast.  Did you also know that:

Titanic Mural in Belfast* the creator of Narnia, CS Lewis, was born in Belfast,

* Hillsborough, a village 15 miles from Belfast, is said to have been the ‘birthplace of America’;  there was such animosity between Benjamin Franklin and whom he visited in Hillsborough that it is said to have initiated the American Declaration of Independence shortly after his visit  in October 1771,

* Lough Neagh is the largest freshwater lake in the Irish and British Isles and is said to be Europe’s greatest source of eels,

* Winston Churchill once owned a Hotel in Carnlough, Antrim,

* Liam Neeson, the famous Hollywood actor, is from Ballymena, Antrim in Northern Ireland, and

* Northern Ireland also has its own Holywood? Lough Erne

Northern Ireland has more to offer the tourist rather than just its current political history (also known as the Troubles).  There is more to Northern Ireland than Orangemen marching and murals on the walls in working class neighbourhoods.  Northern Ireland has a wonderful diverse landscape full of friendly and accommodating people. 

If you want to walk down a beach and visit the seaside – you have a huge choice of beaches in Northern Ireland.  If you want to see a 13th century castle – you can see castles in Northern Ireland.  If you want to see a structure built 5000 years ago for some unknown purpose – you can do that in Northern Ireland.  You can do adventure holidaying, you can canoe, you can walk or hike across Northern Ireland or you can jump in a car and drive miles upon miles.  You can also go for a pint in the local pub and shoot the ‘craic’ until ‘your head is melting’.  You may be ‘ragein’ as the ‘offie’ has closed and you can’t get ‘cans’ to take home. 

Tully CastleCome visit Northern Ireland to meet the people, see the landscape, and do whatever your heart contents as everything is on offer.  A Guide 2 Northern Ireland hopes to give you the information that you need in order to make your holiday the best ever.
