      Northern Ireland Jan 13, 2015 at 7:57 AM

      I was thinking of visiting belfast and around for two days travelling from London to get some Irish experience. Please suggest me itinerary so that I can make the 2 days of my trip worthy.

Definitely want to goto Giant's causeway - but want to know if February month will be right to travel there. I will be travelling with my wife and 2 kids (aged 9 & 5).

      My friend is looking for that famous small book store, located that address, the Google map's search result has found but the street view is only an interaction. Asked building #82's concierge, the lady said there is no Charing Cross #84!

      Any one local please verify, thank you all in advance!

    • 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?

      Thanks.

      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?

    • I am a single parent and want to move from the UK to Northern Ireland UK?

      Northern Ireland May 1, 2013 at 7:24 AM

      Hi, I am a single mother to a 4 year old boy and i would love to move to Ireland. My Grandads parents were born there and he visited Ireland when they left and he always said i should go! So ever since i can remember i have wanted to live in Ireland. I currently live in Blyth which is near Newcastle and i hate it here. I would love somewhere that has a decent school so my son could have a good education and that is walking distance from a town etc so i could find work (which is hard to find wherever you go) I don't want to be in a big city like Newcastle, the population of Blyth is 35,818 which is the kind of size i would like to move to. I am looking for a fresh start in life and i have always wanted to live in Ireland and would love my son to grow up there. I have read a lot on different forums and some people ask about religion etc but i don't really think its a problem anymore according to what i have read from other people. I would really appreciate any information i can get as i really want to choose the right place. Also if there is anywhere that i should not move to i would appreciate the feedback on that as well. Also if i wanted to go out of the UK and move to the Republic Of Ireland what would i have to do?

      Thank you all for your time!

      Hello
      We will be sailing on the Stena Line arriving 6:30AM on Saturday September 15 from Liverpool We will be catching the 6:10 PM train to Dublin. We would really like to do the following things but I'm not sure how to get everywhere.
      1. What can we do at 6:30 AM in Belfast? Maybe St George's Market?
      2. Should we keep out luggage at the train station we depart from for Dublin? Any other options?
      3. We would like to see Ulster Folk Park, Transport Museum and the Titanic displays. As well as The dock & pump house.
      4. We would like to see the political Murals Black taxi tour?
      5. a little shopping and a good breakfast and lunch
      We have just the day and I would like to make the most of it. I'm not sure if we should do the hop on/off bus that seemed to go to a lot of places (could not figure out if it went to the Ulster American Folk Park, it didn't seem to) Is this doable? Any idea suggestions would be most welcome! Especially transportation ideas!

      Hello everyone,

      My husband and I are planning our first visit to Ireland late June or July 2013 for our 20th Anniversary and need any help you can give us. We plan to rent a car to get us around and know we want to see some of the touristy spots but hope to see sites that aren't packed with people as well. We love the thought of meeting the locals and hanging out with them enjoying music and learning about the history of Ireland. Since it is our 20th we would enjoy spending a night in a castle of we can find one that we can afford. Any suggestions on itinerary and B&B's? Oh husband is a homebrewer and would love to see any good distilleries and great bar where locals hang out. Bike trails are a plus also.

      Thank you for any help you can offer
