SOME IDEAS OF WHERE TO STAY AND WHAT TO SEE AROUND NORTHERN IRELAND
*Belfast is pretty genteel these days. But, for a truly mid-boggling attraction, the Titanic Experience takes some beating. Local authority-run Dundonald Touring Caravan Park is your nearest site, but it’s an easy and frequent five-mile bus ride right into the heart of the city.
*Northern Ireland’s North Coast has some lovely resorts, like Portrush, “Northern Ireland’s favourite holiday destination”. Not forgetting the Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland’s sole World Heritage Site. It’s some one and a half hour’s drive from Belfast, but if you want to take a truly scenic route, head for the Antrim Coast Drive.
*Some 30 miles south of Belfast is Strangford Lough. The Camping and Caravanning Club’s Delamont Country Park site is perfectly placed for exploring around here.
Try something a bit different...
Derry (Londonderry) is one of Europe’s finest examples of a walled city. It’s reckoned the term “catwalk” originated from here. The Lonely Plane travel guide organisation recently called it the world’s fourth best city to visit. It’s also Northern Ireland’s second largest city.
