2 Uncover Northern Ireland's intriguing stories
To get to the heart and soul of Belfast’s shipbuilding heritage, look no further than the Titanic Quarter. Here, over a century ago the “Ship of Dreams” was envisioned, built and launched, and now Titanic Belfast – voted the world’s leading tourist attraction – unfolds its journey from conception, to tragedy and beyond.
Of course, beyond the buzzing metropolis of Belfast and its notable murals tours, lies a landscape filled with intriguing tales. There’s the Giant’s Causeway, where giants’ stepping stones trail towards Scotland; there’s Rathlin Island, with its legend of 13th century King Robert the Bruce and the tenacity of a weary spider; and there’s the fascinating history of Dunluce Castle, where one night in the 17th century, the kitchen collapsed down a cliff into the sea.
And, of course, don’t miss a sip of Bushmills Whiskey. After visiting the Old Bushmills Distillery set along the County Antrim coastline, you’ll no doubt soon be telling stories of your very own.
