We know what you’re all wondering: “Is it safe to travel to Northern Ireland?”. Despite our last article telling you all how not to waste your time visiting, some people have clearly refused to heed our travel warning.
This reached a head recently when we were visiting Glenarm Castles Walled Garden. Nigel was queuing for some cake and coffee when he became aware that the couple ahead of him were American … when will they learn? As if that wasn’t bad enough, they then had the audacity to buy the last piece of carrot cake, which Nigel had been saving himself for all day … what the heck! We then posted an article about Northern Ireland’s dangerous climate to put people off coming, but still you guys insist on visiting.
You leave us with no other choice but to share more photos with you, which some people might find traumatic to look at. All photographs are our own and the views expressed are also our own. We have received no financial inducements from any of the places shown to highlight their awfulness but are open to offers of cake!
