What is in Northern Ireland?
No country, no matter how small, can be defined or described by a few short sentences. But to give you an idea of the country, and what we have to offer, we’ll highlight some of the key features below.
For such a small area, relative to other nearby countries, Northern Ireland’s landscape is incredibly diverse. It’s also filled with beautiful attractions and landmarks.
Right in the heart of the country you’ll find Lough Neagh. To the east you’ll find the majestic Mourne Mountains and the serene Strangford Lough. To the west you’ll find the Sperrins and in the south-west you’ll find the Fermanagh Lakelands.
In the north, right at the tip of the island, you’ll find the beautiful north coast. Sometimes this is referred to as the “Causeway Coast” or “Causeway Coastal Route”. We might be biased (we definitely are…) due to our location here in Portrush, but the north coast is at the centre of Northern Ireland’s tourist attractions. There are golden beaches, dramatic glens and a scattering of idyllic coastal towns and villages to enjoy.
As we said before, this is just a small snapshot of what and where Northern Ireland is!
