Reasons to visit
Northern Ireland has stunning landscapes and scenery and is famed around the world for the Giant’s Causeway. With its columns of layered basalt, the polygonal-shaped natural features were created by a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago, and it is Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site. Northern Ireland’s chief cities are graced with parks and tidy residential neighbourhoods. More handsome still is the Northern Irish countryside – green, fertile, and laced with rivers and lakes, all of which have found lyrical expression in the nation’s folk and artistic traditions.
