Northern Ireland is a country of both pretty villages including Derrygonnelly, with its beautiful views of Lough Erne and the Atlantic Ocean. And cosmopolitan cities like the capital, Belfast, with its twinkling waterfront, Victorian architecture and thriving arts scene. Rapid regeneration has given the capital an array of restaurants, bars and shops. These sit alongside grander buildings like the white stone Neoclassical City Hall and St Anne’s Cathedral, which took more than 80 years to complete. Visit the Ulster Museum where exhibitions range from modern art to natural history. Wander in the Botanic Gardens public park containing two glasshouses of exotic plants. And climb Cave Hill for panoramic views of the city. As you'll discover, the people of Northern Ireland are renowned for their affable nature and self-deprecating but quick-witted sense of humour.
