What most people know and hear about North Ireland is about the IRA and unfortunately not about its stunning natural environments, its fantastic green nature and perfectly save holiday destination. You can visit the walled city of Derry, the vibrant city Belfast birthplace of the Titanic or the historic town Armagh. Hikers will love the circular Ulster Way trail and the Causeway Coastal Route (Giant's Causeway) running from Dublin to Derry as you will see castles, remote fishing villages and spectacular beaches. Other popular outdoor locations are the Sperrin Mountains, Fermanagh Lake and the Mountains of Mourne with its rivers, lakes and forests. The Antrim coast ans several of the Loughs are well known for its sea fishing trips and Lough Erne is also called the boating and sailing lough of Ireland.
The Strangford Lough is a very popular location for boating, fishing but also for scuba diving as you can see basking sharks (especially in June) and several species of seals and their pubs. Belfast Lough, being the main shipping lane of Ireland, is popular because of its many shipwrecks and proximity to Dublin. In the north, near Rathlin Island and Baycastle Bay, you can find spectacular reefs, interesting wrecks such as the famous HMS Drake and steep drop-offs. Other dive locations include Portstewart, Portrush and Lough Neagh. There have been sightings of killer whales, mink whales and several types of dolphins all around the north of Ireland. North Ireland makes for a great holiday destination where beautiful nature, hiking, culture, historic towns and scuba diving are perfectly combined.
