Cottage Holidays in Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland is a country within the UK. It occupies the north-eastern part of Ireland and shares borders with the Irish Republic to the south and west. The capital is Belfast and other cities in the region are Armagh, Derry, Lisburn and Newry.
Northern Ireland is a country full of natural wonders, ideal for a country holiday rental. The prime feature is Lough Neagh, an immense freshwater lake in the centre of the country (and the largest in the UK) which is an area popular for an Activity Short Break - in particular for water sports. A holiday in Northern Ireland also offers the awesome beauty of mountain ranges such as the Sperrin Mountains in the north and the Mourne Mountains in the south of the country. The most popular natural spectacle however is the Giant's Causeway - an area of almost perfectly geometrical basalt pillars which form natural stepping-stones down to the sea.
Other places to see in Northern Ireland include the impressive parliament buildings at Stormont, the Norman fortification of Carrickfergus Castle, the picturesque harbour at Donaghadee, the floral wonder of Rowallane Garden and the ruins of Downhill Estate & Mussenden Temple.Read More...
