About Northern Ireland:
Northern Ireland is a beautiful country located on the beautiful Irish isles and is considered a part of the United Kingdom whereas its sister country, Ireland, is not. Northern Ireland is known for more than its rugged natural landscapes, lush greenery and epic coastlines. It is home to the monumental Titanic, award winning golf courses, the unique volcanic formation of the Giant's Causeway and the site of revolution that leaves its mark in Londonderry today.
The infamous Titanic was built in Belfast. Tours of the Titanic's monumental journey from Belfast to its ultimate fate in the Atlantic Ocean begin at the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum with its Titanic exhibit. Stop by the Harland & Wolff Shipyard where the ship was built and end at the Titanic Memorial located on the grounds of Belfast City Hall. Pick up Titanic memorabilia from several shops in the Belfast area, then wander outside of Belfast for a bird's eye view of the city atop Cave Hill.
An extremely popular Northern Ireland hotspot is the Giant's Causeway located along the Antrim Coast. The four mile long rock formation of 40,000 interlocking basalt columns is the result of a volcanic eruption that scientists claim was formed over 60 million years ago. Many locals hold fast to the legend that the causeway was built by bickering giants. There are amazing trails to walk along the Causeway with sheer drop offs that lead to breathtaking heights. If you walk the whole 12 miles of the Causeway Coast path you will reach the Carrick-a-Rede rope suspension bridge with aerial views for only the most undaunted travelers.Built by fisherman centuries ago you can walk high a hundred feet over craggy rocks over turbulent ocean waves on this interesting attraction that at one time had a single hand rope over wooden slabs spaced out. The rope bridge today can withstand up to a hundred tons of pressure and carries hundreds of tourists a year who dare to venture out over its steep cliffs.
Anyone visiting Northern Ireland should visit Londonderry for a colorful and transparent history into Northern Ireland's revolutionary roots. The Bloody Sunday Memorial is located in Londonderry commemorates the victims of the Bloody Sunday riots there. The town is painted in colorful murals and graffiti as reminders of the revolution that Northern Ireland once led to separate itself from Great Britain's rule. Today Derry is a safe and vibrant city, but these murals remind Northern Ireland of a time when it was anything but and document its civil rights movement against British internment. Taking a local tour will give you a more comprehensive look at the timeline of events that took place on these historic streets.
