10 Amazing Things to do in Northern Ireland

With an incredible mix of awesome landscapes and world-class visitor attractions, Northern Ireland is a dream destination with adventures around every corner

10. Explore the Causeway Coastal Route

Widely hailed as one of the world's top road trips, the Causeway Coastal Route is an astounding adventure from Belfast to Derry-Londonderry. Hugging the north Antrim coastline, this magnificent route amps up the drama thanks to pulse-racing epics such as the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and the Giant's Causeway, and moments of sheer beauty with vast sandy beaches, gorse-covered valleys and charming fishing villages. Don't miss it.

9. See the Glens of Antrim

The Causeway Coastal Route takes in the Glens of Antrim as it winds its way along the north Antrim coast, but to get the most out of these deep green glens, we'd suggest you go slowly. There are nine glens in total, rich with legend, dotted with great little villages and famous for their festivals. Take in the stunning estate at Glenarm, see the wild beauty of Glenariff and enjoy music in the village of Cushendall.

8. Take a food tour of Belfast

Belfast's streets are lined with some of the most exciting places to eat on the island of Ireland, from the Michelin-starred delights of Ox and Eipic to the food mecca of St George's Market. For an inside track of the city's food scene, the folks at Taste and Tour will bring you through a smorgasboard of Belfast's top tastes on the award-winning Belfast Food Tour, with visits to producers, bars, shops and restaurants.

7. Visit the Titanic Quarter

Belfast is Titanic Town. This is the city where the Ship of Dreams was conceived, constructed and launched. And at the very heart of it all is Titanic Belfast, an epic visitor experience that's not to be missed. The Titanic Quarter packs in the attractions, too, with the Titanic Dock and Pump-House, Titanic Pilgrimage Walk and the SS Nomadic, the last remaining White Star Line ship in the world.
