The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum

Possibly the best museum in Northern Ireland – it consummately encapsulates much of the North’s cultural and industrial history.

Portaferry

A superb waterside location, tremendous sunsets and the best base for exploring Strangford Lough and the Ards Peninsula.

The Mourne Mountains

Brooding and dominating South Down, the Mournes offer magnificent walking, intoxicating views and a total escape from the contemporary world.

Armagh city

Probably the most graceful city in the North, with two cathedrals and a captivating Mall.

The Argory

A magnificent nineteenth-century mansion, set in gorgeous grounds and featuring one of the most illuminating guided tours in Ireland.

Slieve Gullion

Drive or hike to the top of this mountain and enjoy the panorama of the unmissable South Armagh countryside laid out below.
