Northern Ireland trip

Northern Ireland trip

On a Northern Ireland trip you’ll be heading to the North-Eastern part of the Irish island, one of the four nations that make up the United Kingdom.

There’s quite a marked difference between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, the thing that you’ll notice first will be how well-maintained the roads are and that the signs are in miles. However, the differences extend to the accent that the people speak here, because after all you will be in the United Kingdom after all.

Political instability in the past, gave this country a reputation for being violent and dangerous, that is not the case currently, and tourists can enjoy the breathtaking scenery and the wonderful Victorian architecture that this country has to offer. From the city walls of Derry to Belfast’s architecture, and everything in between and beyond await for your visit.

Since we mentioned Belfast and Derry earlier, Belfast is a very happening spot, with great nightlife opportunities and an exciting culinary scene, as for Derry, it’s steadily becoming the cool, artistic city.

Belfast has a plethora of attractions of a variety of types so that many visitors will find the place interesting.

We are in the British Isles so this means that castles are something of a must-have and a must-see for major cities. Belfast Castle isn’t as old as you might expect, it was built in 1870 for the third Marquess of Donegall, in a wonderful Scottish Baronial style, made fashionable by Queen Victoria. The interior of the castle was renovated during the ‘70s and ‘80s leaving it a considerable modern place, as opposed to antique.

Derry is the second city in importance after the capital, a place that many find to be something of a pleasant surprise. Its great riverside setting and many fascinating historical sights make this place a must-see spot on your trip to the country.

There are many more things to see and do in this great place so keep our United Kingdom car rental services in mind while you’re there.
