Amazing cliff-walks, Game of Thrones adventures, Titanic attractions – let Northern Ireland stir your soul
A Northern Ireland adventure
When it comes to accolades, Northern Ireland has it covered. Come here and you can experience what's been called "one of the greatest drives on earth" (The Causeway Coastal Route), "the best place to spend Halloween" (Derry~Londonderry), and Golf Digest's number one golf course in the world (Royal County Down). But there's more to Northern Ireland than epic sights and world-class experiences – there's a spirit. This is a land that resounds with myths from the Sperrin Mountains to the Giant's Causeway. It's a place of unbridled creativity, from the music scene in Belfast to literary greats both, past and present. And it's hub of great food, with cutting-edge restaurants and cosy old pubs.
Embrace a giant spirit
In Northern Ireland, you're never far from a memory in the making. Walk the 16th century walls of Derry~Londonderry. Paddle through the inky waters of Lough Erne, studded with islands where Celts, Vikings and Christian monks have all left their mark. Or discover Westeros on a Game of Thrones® tour of iconic filming locations. But, remember, for every showstopping sight, there's a quiet moment that will stay with you forever. If you're looking for somewhere to nourish your spirit, Northern Ireland is it.
Royal County Down Golf Course
“On a clear spring day, with Dundrum Bay to the east, the Mountains of Mourne to the south and gorse-covered dunes in golden bloom, there is no lovelier place in golf.” – Golf Digest
Armagh Food and Cider Festival
“Aptly named The Orchard County, you might say that Armagh is the perfect destination for a cider festival.” – Lovin.ie
“The dramatic ruin of Dunluce Castle, perched on a rocky cliff above the Atlantic and accessed by a dizzying bridge, looks like the site of a fantasy novel.” – National Geographic
“Enniskillen, the "capital" of Fermanagh, nestles between Lower and Upper Lough Erne in a splendid region of lakes and hills.” – The Michelin Green Guide
Far and Wild Tours
“Derry Girls has shone a spotlight on everything from the city’s bakery items to its distinctive lingo, and turned Northern Ireland’s second city into the latest must-visit destination for tourists.” – Irish Times
Bushmills Inn, County Antrim
“With its peat fires, cosy snugs and heavenly food, the Causeway Coast’s historic coaching inn is the perfect winter retreat.” – The Guardian

Seamus Heaney HomePlace
This is a special place. A moving place. An inspirational place. Seamus Heaney HomePlace takes you on an inspiring journey through the life and work of one of Ireland’s greatest writers. While much of Seamus Heaney’s writing is inspired by words and ways of life specific to this area, his human relationships and household objects, which we bring to the fore in our exhibition, are familiar to many. This creates a deeply personal visitor experience.
Tracey's Farmhouse Kitchen Experience
In Tracey’s Kitchen, people make friends as well as bread. No one leaves empty-handed. Guests take away the irish breads they made with their own hands, a pack of ingredients and recipes and, if there are any left, some still-warm cakes and scones. This is true Northern Irish hospitality at it's best.
