24 hours in Northern Ireland Travel Guide Video Transcript:
I recently travelled to Northern Ireland with the sole purpose of tracking down 24 unique moments travellers can experience – one for each hour of the day. From food tours to Game of Thrones experiences, and coastal walks to haunted castle visits, here’s is what I experienced in Northern Ireland.
Giant’s Causeway is a UNESCO Heritage Site that features no less than 40,000+ interlocking basalt columns. Legend has it that Irish giant, Finn MacCool, built the causeway across the North Channel to accept a fight from Scottish giant Benandonner.
The Gobbins is a modern cliff path located in County Antrim. The walk takes you across bridges past caves and through tunnels.
For my 9:00 am activity, I visited the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, which links the mainland to the small island of Carraig a’ Ráid.
The suspension bridge offers the best vantage points for landscape photos.
Titanic Belfast museum offers visitors a chance to learn about the lives of the workers who built the Titanic, along with the passengers and crew who made the fateful voyage.
An Ulster Fry features soda bread, potato bread, back bacon, fried eggs, fried mushrooms, sausages, baked beans, hash browns and toast.
With a burgeoning food scene the Belfast Food Tour is a great way to sample some of the best bites and drinks the city has to offer.
The 4-hour guided walk takes you to some top food and drink spots around Belfast while better acquainting yourself with the city!
At Harry’s Shack I had a hankering for fish and chips and it was the best I’ve had in Northern Ireland.
The Dark Hedges wasn’t the only GOT destination I visited. Game Of Thrones fans will be glad to know that you can visit Castle Ward to experience Winterfell by dressing up in costume and putting those archery skills to the test.
After all that pampering, I made it down to Lough Erne for sunset with a side of roasted marshmallows. At Deanes Love Fish they had an amazing seafood platter indulging to the max!
If you’re looking for something to do at 01:00 am, be it ending the evening or kickstarting the night, the Merchant Hotel is a great spot for a cocktail and conversation. I finished the night at Bullitt Hotel, where there was a live DJ set and party atmosphere.
The story of Lady Isabella goes that after being locked in her room and starved by her husband, she fell to her death from the window. Mediums who spent the night at the castle reported that there are numerous ghosts.
And that’s a wrap for my solo adventure in Northern Ireland. I hope this 24 hour travel guide gave you some ideas of cool things you see, do, and eat when you visit. In the meantime, wishing you happy travels and until next time!
