Belfast city lies on the border of counties Antrim and Down at the mouth of the River Lagan and is Northern Ireland’s main city.

With such a variety of things to do it’s little wonder that short breaks to Belfast and the surrounding area are popular. Get yourself up the coast to the Giants Causeway, one of Northern Ireland’s most visited attractions and then onto Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge before stopping off in the coastal town of Cushendall or visit Bushmills where the famous whiskey is made.
Travelling along the coast in your car hire will bring you to the maiden city of Derry. Derry is an exciting city with bags of shopping options and a fantastic nightlife. Then head for Omagh, the main town in County Tyrone and home of the Ulster American Folk Park, followed by a trip around the lakes of Fermanagh and the Marble Arch Caves or a shopping trip to Enniskillen. You can then make your way east towards the cathedral city of Armagh and then along to the Mountains of Mourne and the seaside resort of Newcastle in County Down before heading north back to Belfast!
