Belfast and the Best of Northern Ireland

2960 ratings | 752150 views
Rick Steves' Europe Travel Guide | We start in bustling Belfast's City Hall and Ulster Museum, then head out to Northern Ireland's favorite resort: Portrush, along the Antrim Coast, where we taste-test Irish whiskey, scramble over some six-sided geology in the Giant's Causeway, drop in on a world-class golf course, and stomp our feet to some traditional music. © 2004 Rick Steves' Europe

This is just an empty area and nobody cares about it, especially London. The British governm,ent has got a long memory and what the DUP are doing now regards to BREXIT will have to be paid for later. You'll all be one again sooner rather than later.

Mill town cemetery was really interesting to see, I went on an Easter Monday. It was a bit tense but if you are not from there it’s safe. I was looking for my grandparents graves.

And after all these years it's time for the British to get out no other country on earth should have to be spit because of the stupidity of the past if you don't want to live in Ireland good go back to Britain and stay there we can blame to stupidity of decades ago but in these modern times its just a way to poke the bear it is not responsible behavior in this day and age

I've been to the Republic of Ireland, not Northern Ireland. I enjoyed watching many of Rick Steves' travel programs on PBS many years ago. One of my favorite singers is from Northern Ireland, Van Morrison.

I visited the entirety of Ireland in 2003 with my family on a wonderful Trafalgar tour. I was very much in love with the whole country, Northern and the Republic of Ireland. The people are just beautiful and so very kind.

On a day tour a few years ago, we didn't go into Dunluce Castle, but rather stopped a little to the east to view it. Looking straight out into the sea we could see a church spire sticking up out of the water, which our guide told us was from a church that had fallen into the sea. So far I haven't been able to find out anything about it.

Donegal Overlanding (7 months ago)
We have uploaded many videos from the most remote regions of County Donegal, the places the tourists do not normally get to see. We normally upload 3-4 videos each month as we explore the rugged beauty of this fabulous county and find remote camping spots to spend the night out under the stars...or under the wind, snow, hail,sleet or whatever the weather throws at us. Have a look and see what you think. We would really appreciate if you also decided to subscribe to our channel to show us some support and encourage us to make more videos for your enjoyment.

The kitchen bit of Dunluce is just an old wives tale. :P There's been archeological studies on the castle and they've determined there's no proof of a section of the building having ever fallen into the sea.

I heard today I have lost a true Friend, who was always there for me. By right some would say we should not have been friends, she was from Belfast and Protestant. My Parents were from Southern Ireland and I was brought up as Catholic (now lapsed), it made no difference. We never got involved with the Politics. This all reminds me of my dear Friend. Thank you.

I went to 9 country's in Europe last summer and met some friends from Belfast in Paris - 6 country's later I decided to fly there to meet up with them again. I originally planned to stay for 5 days, ended up staying for 12! The people of Northern Ireland are some of the friendliest and accommodating I've ever met. If your deciding if you should go - do it!! :)

Guillotine in the public square. It's best of three rock paper scissors to see which ones head rolls.

Either that or a public stoning for the women and hanging for the men.

Marilyn Garcia depends on the families, and what they believe etc. I was protestant and married a Catholic

Is there a way to refer to Londonderry/Derry without offending one side or the other, neutral as such?

+llokkee A friend and I bicycled across Ireland and met no one but the most pleasant, accomodating, and hospitable people. Even when I badly mispronounced 'Athy' the correction was given with a smile and understanding. We were given directions, helpful suggestions, and friendliness. Ireland and the Irish are to be enjoyed and loved. Thank you.
llokkee (1 year ago)
I wouldn't worry about it mate We just argue amongst ourselves, people here are by and large very friendly and welcoming towards tourists. Just dont enter into a political conversation, but im sure u can trust ur own judgement ;-) As u can see, there'll always be the odd eejit ;-
SiVlog (1 year ago)
Barbara Hallinan This was why I put the question up in the first place. There are people who want to visit Ireland, North or South, who don't want to get involved in the politics of whether the 6 county area should be with the other 26 counties or remain with the UK.
