Northern Ireland

Every time I think of Northern Ireland, it’s the Giant’s Causeway that comes to my mind. The beautiful landscapes of the coast were one of the best things we brought with us from this trip. Also the fact that we visited Northern Ireland during St. Patrick’s weekend gave us the opportunity to have direct contact with the culture of Ireland, and for extent Belfast. A city that was stage of many violent political events is today a friendly and welcoming place to visit. The Titanic and the Cathedral Quarters, even though both very different from each other, are a pleasure of just walking around. If the coast of Northern Ireland was the highest point of the trip the second was for sure visiting the Crumlin Road Gaol. As Belfast is not a big city we enjoyed taking our time having some drinks in different hotels and bars around the city while experiencing the lively atmosphere of St. Patrick’s festivities.
