Best Beach Guide to Northern Ireland

Best Beach Guide to Northern Ireland

Beaches in Northern Ireland

We love a nice beach and luckily for us Northern Ireland, where we live, has some of the finest beaches in the world. Even if we don’t get to lie out on them sunbathing as much as we would like they still provide us with beautiful walks at any time of year. This is just a selection of some of the best beaches that we have been to recently. There are many other beaches which could have been on the list so hopefully we will get to them in the near future … Castlerock, Ballycastle, Cranfield, Tyrella and Cloughey etc you were not forgotten!

Belfast’s Cave Hill – Why it is Worth the Climb

Belfast’s Cave Hill – Why it is Worth the Climb

In the first part of our Undiscovered Ulster series, we showed you the most under-rated spots of Nigel’s home town Belfast and this is one of them.

The famous profile of Belfast’s 370m high Cave Hill can be seen from almost anywhere in the city and even beyond. Its most famous feature, known as Napoleon’s Nose, is said to have inspired the giant in Jonathan Swift’s novel Gulliver’s Travels. 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!

Yesterday, we showed you some of Nigel’s photos from our Valentine’s Day mini road trip close to home. While they probably gave you a pretty good idea of how gorgeous the Antrim Coast Road is, we wanted to get as close as possible to making you feel like you were there with us. This is a video that Martha made, which we hope will have a soothing and relaxing effect on you after a stressful day at work. We hope you enjoy the scenery. Find out more about the Antrim Coast Road in yesterday’s post.
