Coast, Glens & Countryside

Our short series “Undiscovered Ulster” aims to introduce you to a part of Ireland that has had less publicity than Dublin, Cork and Galway. The Ulster region undoubtedly offers some of the Island’s most stunning scenery and is far less crowded. In the first article of the series, we showed you the hidden gems of Nigel’s hometown of Belfast. Now we are taking you to the to 10 places on Northern Ireland’s stunning North Coast. View Post

Giant’s Causeway, Portballintrae & Bushmills

Northern Ireland’s North Coast is an area blessed with so much spectacular scenery and so many attractions that even we as locals struggle to visit everywhere on a regular basis. Recently we realised that the Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland’s 60 million-year-old UNESCO World Heritage site, was somewhere that we hadn’t visited for close to three years. So last Sunday, on one of the few calm and sunny days that we have been able to enjoy in recent months, we headed for the North Coast, eager for some fresh air and exercise and some of the finest scenery you could wish for!

Those of you who have known us for a while will probably be saying “Oh no, not the sunbathing cows again”! To them we apologise, but the sunbathing cows at White Park Bay on Northern Ireland’s stunning North Coast continue to amuse and fascinate people from literally all over the world. We were made aware of this again this week when we posted a photograph of Martha and our cow buddies on the Facebook page ‘Ireland from the Roadside’. Close to 300 people have liked the photo with many comments and shares too, so this is basically the story of our cow encounter with quite a lot of previously unseen photos too! View Post
