Northern Ireland Hotels & City Breaks
For a city or big hotel break, there is no better destination than the capital of Northern Ireland: Belfast. This amazing city blends the very best of history with modern quirks and attractions - from the Titanic museum to lots of Game of Thrones filming hotspots and tours. Bangor is another excellent city break with Bangor Castle to visit as well as fun family activities such as mini golf, pedal boats and playgrounds. Derry also makes it onto our city recommendations with its combination of Irish historical sights and museums and a popular location for foodies with its abundance of great bars and restaurants.
Cottage Breaks in Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland is a fantastic destination for those who want a retreat into nature - preferably in a cosy cottage, caravan, camping or glamping venue. A good place to start is anywhere around the vast Mourne Mountains. Giant mountain peaks, rolling foothills, stunning forests and a number of walking trails is on the menu in this part of Northern Ireland. Another great place to target for a cottage is anywhere in and around Belfast. The capital is intertwined with the countryside and includes the Belfast Hills and 11-mile Lagan Valley Regional Park. A cottage here is perfect if you want the best of both the city and countryside.
Beach Holidays in Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland is also a specialist when it comes to beach holidays and more specifically, breath-taking coastal stays and routes that are visited by millions every year. The main attraction is definitely the famous Giant’s Causeway and the entire area surrounding it including the Glens of Antrim. If it's water that you are after, you might be surprised just how many lakes and canals Northern Ireland has as well as the Irish Sea and Atlantic Ocean that it touches. Canoeing and kayaking is available across all of the major counties, bareboating is a popular activity and diving, fishing and even wet bouldering are up there too.
