Very green and spotted with numerous lakes, the landscapes of Northern Ireland are very much like those of the south. They actually offer a haven of tranquility that simply makes you lazy.
The coasts of Northern Ireland have opted for variety: long sandy beaches alternate with parcels of rocky coast striped with cliffs, volcanic masses, and of course, the renowned basalt columns of the Giant's Causeway.
Although little known, the culture of Northern Ireland can be discovered in the museums of Belfast and Derry, as well as in meetings at the pub or traditional ceremonies.
Northern Ireland's wildlife is found by the sea along the stretches of the coast that have not been touched by industrialisation. Remember to take along your binoculars to watch the birds nestling on the heights of the cliffs.
