17 Aug Some highlights of Northern Ireland
1. GIANTS CAUSEWAY
The Norths best known tourist attraction….but do not think that you ahve seen the coast by just visiting the Giants Causeway. Many make that mistake. The coast has so much more to offer including castles , rugged cliffs , long sandy beaches , rolling hills and glens , and beautiful harbours and villages.
The Giants Causeway is a fascinating spectacular landscape of six sided basalt columns. The tallest , in the Giants Organ , are about 36 feet (12 metres) high. The lead ship in the Spanish Armada sank off this coast and when the waves are crashing on the stones you will see why.
Come and see it with Ireland Luxury Tours on any Ireland tour.
2. LONDONDERRY OR DERRY
Settlement began in the 6th Century and the walls are the only unbroken fortifications in either Ireland or Britain.
Come and see the city on any Ireland tours.
Houses 2 museums and in a stunning setting on the shore of Lough Erne. Great military museum with vehicles and equipment showing the wonderful history of the Inniskilling Dragoons.
Well worth seeing on any tours of Ireland.
4. ULSTER AMERICAN FOLK PARK
Reconstructed cottages , forge , shops and a great insight to the Old world of Ireland. Also reconstructed buildings of what the immigrants came to when they got off the boat in America.
Fantastic to see on Ireland tours.
