Interesting and informative article

Wonderful travel tips for northern Ireland. When I visited Ireland I went to the border of Belfast. The guards were intimidating so went no further. Promoted your fine article.


Thanks for the tips! I'm traveling to Ireland in a few weeks and I'm hoping to see some of these places. Do you know what kind of Ireland plug adapter I'll need? I've never been, and I want to make sure I'm able to use all of my electronics. Thanks!
