Where to go

 

Causeway Coastal Route
The Causeway Coastal Route is rightfully known as ‘one of the world’s great road journeys’. It follows the main coast road between Belfast and Londonderry, a distance of 120 miles (195km). Switching between hugging the coastline and dipping inland to rural glens and villages for 195 miles, the weaving trail between the cities of Belfast and Derry~Londonderry may not cover huge distances, but each location is worth savouring.

Dublin
Brains, beauty and banter. From famous writers to thrilling Viking history and top pub’s, you can’t beat the nation’s capital. It’s typical of Dublin that a meeting between a local and a visitor (where you get in-the-know tips and local knowledge) has been turned into an event, with the City of A Thousand Welcomes initiative. That’s probably why it was voted the Friendliest City in Europe by TripAdvisor twice: Dublin is a city that definitely wants to meet you.

Game of Thrones Territory
The Game of Thrones world can be darker than Ramsey Bolton’s mind and more twisted than Cersei Lannister’s soul. Thank the gods then, that the scenery is so utterly beautiful. But remember: landscapes like this can only be found in Northern Ireland.

So sharpen your sword, tighten your shield-strap and set forth on a journey into the real world Westeros.
