Gallery: Our Day on the Antrim Coast Road

One of our favourite drives here in Northern Ireland is along the Antrim Coast Road, which runs along our East Coast and contains amazing scenery along with quaint sleepy villages and harbours along the way. This drive is recognised as one of the Worlds great scenic roads. The only problem is that the scenery is so stunning that you have to keep stopping to take photos or just to breath in the sea air so this drive might take longer than you think! View Post

Cow Beach: White Park Bay Beach in Northern Ireland

Cow Beach: White Park Bay Beach in Northern Ireland

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

Nigel’s Life in Northern Ireland

Having lived in Northern Ireland all my life and grown up through what became known around the world as ‘The Troubles’, I am still getting used to seeing Belfast, the city where I grew up and went to school and worked, as a tourist destination with visitors literally from all over the world. In 2014 over 60 cruise ships visited Belfast and the province has also hosted major events in recent years such as a G8 conference, MTV European Music Awards and the World Police & Fire Games. This is certainly something, which was never seen during my early life as literally nobody would have considered visiting Northern Ireland and especially Belfast for a holiday, concert or sporting event.
