From endless amounts of history to sprawling landscapes of natural beauty and some of the friendliest locals around, Northern Ireland is a great place for a weekend break or even a longer stay.
With its turbulent history, Northern Ireland hasn’t always been a top tourism destination. Today however you’ll find the country rejuvenated. Belfast, the capital city, is perhaps the liveliest place to visit. 2012 was a big year for Belfast as it marked the 100-year anniversary of the Titanic, which was built here, and also the year the city decided to showcase its heritage. While the history here runs deep, you’ll find the city has a cosmopolitan vibe to it with chic hotels and hedonistic late night spots.
As Northern Ireland’s second city, Londonderry can definitely hold its own. The 17th century city walls hold plenty of history for visitors to explore. There are also plenty of pubs and an epic live music scene – however it’s the people here that you’ll find the most endearing.
There are plenty of other great places to explore in Northern Ireland as well. From seaside towns of Newcastle and Ballygally to the beautiful Emerald green countryside Hotels4u.com have the perfect hotel to suit you.
