Boyne Valley

As you leave the bustling urban delight of Dublin behind and head towards the Irish midlands and the Boyne Valley region, you’ll notice a change in your surrounding. Fields upon fields of greenery stretch out in every direction as you edge close to your next destination: The ancient wonder that is Newgrange. The megalithic passage grave at Newgrange features elaborate stone carvings and the tomb itself predates the Roman civilisation, England’s Stonehenge and even the pyramids of Egypt! Continue towards Belfast City. En route a stop off at Carrickfergus Castle is always a treat. The fascinating building is one of the best preserved medieval structures in Ireland. Before going to bed, have a look around the local pubs. Traditional music is still strong all over Ireland and Belfast is no exception. Read more

Taking the scenic route from Belfast toward the Giant’s Causeway is a must as you will pass through a variety of picturesque coastal villages which will fascinate you as you edge ever closer to the causeway.

Nowadays visitors flock to this attraction to take this exhilarating challenge and cross the gap. Continue on to the causeway which is a truly magical place. Unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, you will be overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of it.

Dublin via Tyrone and Monasterboice

It’s time to head south again and make your way back to Dublin. This drive will see you surrounded by expansive and beautiful scenery, but why not break up the drive with a trip to Omagh and the Ulster American Folk Park. This open air museum in Castletown (just outside Omagh) explores the historical link between Ulster and America, dealing mainly with those particular immigrants who sailed from Ulster to America in the 18th and 19th Centuries. There are around thirty buildings in the park - some of these are recreations but others are originals, which have been restored with the utmost of care. As you leave Tyrone and head south, you can take a short diversion to County Louth, where you'll find Monasterboice.
