    • Mountains of Mourne

      Northern Ireland Jun 20, 2015 at 8:30 AM

      I visited Downpatrick several years ago and would like information about planning return visit. I was at Donard hotel and enjoyed the lovely sightseeing.

      I will be using public transportation and need to know if there are any short stay sightseeing tours on offer I might connect with to enjoy this lovely area. Have visited Carlingford in last few years but do not have information on where I might pick up a tour, or even do 2 days sightseeing solo. Which area is better for overnight stop(s) and distances from towns to see the best views of Mountains down by the SEA! Thank you.

I think we may have more time in Day 2 - please suggest if we can cover more., our flight back is at around 7pm, so we may need to drop our car around 5pm. If we can cover more - whatelse we can cover - or can we rearrange our itinerary to a better one?

    • Bus from Airport and other transport

      Northern Ireland Apr 14, 2015 at 5:29 PM

      Flying into Belfast, will stay at Holiday Inn Express on University Street, were told to take bus 300 from airport to go to Europa Hotel Bus Station, is that going to be walking distance to Holiday Inn? Can't afford what I fear may be expensive taxi rides?Also is it about 10£ for return ticket (to and from) ? also where would I go to catch train to Dublin, from same hotel? Is that also walking distance? Thanks very much for any assistance. We are used to walking, though middle aged, just have to keep in mind we have two suitcases to tag from airport with us. :)

    • Titanic experience

      Belfast Apr 6, 2015 at 1:53 AM

      In blunt terms is the Titanic Experience worth it - I know that this is a subjective question and is there parking nearby. How long should I allow for the visit. What exactly is involved with the boat trip. The website leaves a lot to be desired. So often these historical attractions are not worth their money - being on a tight budget would the money be better spent on a pub meal?

      Many thanx

    • Travelling by flight from Belfast to London need UK visa?

      Belfast Sep 24, 2014 at 11:09 AM

      I want to travel to London from Belfast. I hold Irish passport so I do not need visa to UK. But my parents are planning to travel with me too. They hold Non-EU passport. My parents are currently with me in Ireland. We plan to travel to London from Belfast to avoid passport control. Does anyone knows is there passport control or check travelling from Belfast to London and vice-versa?

      European Heritage Open Days

      Northern Ireland Sep 7, 2014 at 2:40 PM

      Anyone in Northern Ireland this weekend (13/14 September) may be interested in the European Heritage Open Days. This is where you can visit buildings/sites that are not normally open to the public and usually have a guided tour. The buildings/sites range from houses to churches to boats, some of which are used as film sets (e.g. Game of Thrones). There are various talks at other locations, too. It's a great event and most sites are free - some even include a cup of tea!

      More info discovernorthernireland.com/...

      Is this event on in other European countries?

      Taking the Antrim Coaster bus

      Northern Ireland Aug 5, 2014 at 5:17 PM

      We are 2 older women leaving Belfast on a Sunday and we want to end up at the Giants Causeway (our hotel is near there). We are reliant on public transport. I noted that we could take the 'coastal route' bus 252 up to the Causeway but we wanted to stop off along the route for some sightseeing on foot. I see that there is a 6 hour gap between the 2 daily buses on that day, so I need to decide where to get off for a bit and make use of the time. I thought Glenarm's Walled Garden might be nice but 6 hours there? or Glenariff Forest Park but how to get there from the Waterfoot stop? Or maybe get off at Ballycastle and take a ferry to Rathlin Island? We will have our suitcases with us, so it would be nice to leave the cases somewhere so we can explore. Suggestions?

      How to make the most of my private tour, Antrim

      Northern Ireland Mar 27, 2014 at 1:39 PM

      I am staying at the Valley View B&B, Bushmills, and they are offering a day tour of pretty much anything I want to see in a day for my photography assignment. I have selected to concentrate my efforts on Dunluce Castle (I want to visit it too), the Dark Hedges, Giant's Causeway, Hezlett House/Mussenden Temple. I just found out that the Giant's Causeway stretches for about 4 miles! I can't be sure my driver will have the patience for waiting while I scramble amongst the rocks, so can someone who has had some success with shooting this area tell me how best to photograph it (i.e. which vantage points are best to shoot from, time of day, etc etc). How much time is good for Dunluce Castle? Is the Dark Hedges best photographed morning, midday, or dusk? I deleted the Bushmills Distillery off my itinerary since I don't drink and I'm not sure how successful a photograph of this place would be. However, I am looking for a decent place to have lunch (maybe with a view?) so some tips would be handy. Are there any other castles in ruins nearby?
