Best things to do in Northern Ireland!
One of the great things about Belfast is that all the best things to see and do in Northern Ireland are just a short drive away. One of the best family things to do while staying in Belfast is take a trip up to the North Coast, also known as the Causeway Coast!
The Causeway Coastal route has some of the most amazing scenery in all of Ireland! The most famous landmark is the Giant’s Causeway of course which is a truly spectacular landscape. But there are so many more amazing things to do! All within a few miles is Dunluce Castle, Bushmills Distillery, Carrick-a-rede Ropebridge and the towns of Portrush and Portstewart.
Both these towns have some of the best beaches in Ireland and my favourite is Portstewart Strand. The beach seems to stretch on forever! Right at the end you can see the Mussenden Temple.
There are some amazing places to eat too. My favourite is Harry’s Shack as it’s right on the beach and serves amazing fresh seafood. Special mention also goes to Maegden which we were devastated to find was closed the day we shot the video! It’s a food van that does incredible cheese toasties and is parked right beside the Giant’s Causeway which is handy as you’ll need to walk off those calories! Portstewart is also home to Morelli’s ice cream which is always a hit.
If you’re looking for family things to do near Belfast then a day at the North Coast has to be top of the list.
