East Coast:

Depending of course what you like doing but from Belfast, you can be in the heart of the Mourne Mountains within an hour. This majestic mountain range of sweeping hills and grand peaks is described by Lonely Planet as “one of the most beautiful corners of Northern Ireland”.

This is a part of Northern Ireland for the nature lovers among us and if you like taking part in a range of activities, then County Down is for you.

The Sperrins Area of Outstanding Beauty:

Everywhere in Northern Ireland is so accessible. In the heart of NI is the Sperrin Mountains which form the rooftop of County Tyrone – again, so easily accessible by car from Belfast and you will love this place. Here, you slow down. The scenery is breath-taking, the views are unspoilt. There’s a local saying: “The Sperrins are good for whatever ails you.”

It’s here that not only do you look all around you – but you must look up! The Sperrins is an official ‘Dark Sky’ area – it is the best place for star gazing and tourists have been flocking to the OM Dark Sky Park and Observatory at Davagh Forest – a haven for walkers, nature lovers, night sky worshippers and mountain bikers. At the observatory there are holographic displays, sky maps, virtual reality headsets and of course, it has its own gigantic star-gazing

Like the Mournes, you’ll love touring the Sperrins, in fact, National Geographic included the Sperrins in its top 101 scenic drives in the world. This is a very special place in Northern Ireland so fly into Belfast with Aer Lingus from Cornwall Airport Newquay and go on a journey unique to Northern Ireland.

The Lakeland County:

Think castles, National Trust properties, forests, waterways, lakes, islands, the stairway to heaven, caves, geopark and you’ll be thinking about County Fermanagh – Northern Ireland’s Lakelands County.

Fly into Belfast with Aer Lingus from Newquay, all-year-round, and experience the sheer beauty of this wonderful county. You can travel
to Fermanagh’s main town Enniskillen by bus from Belfast or you can drive – it’s approximately two hours.

County Fermanagh is a haven for natives of Northern Ireland as well as tourists. Its beauty is memorable, adventurous and breath-taking. The county’s landscape has been described as ‘an intricate patchwork quilt of woodland, forest, parkland and wetland’. People travel from all over Ireland, and further afield, to experience the extensive walking trails, the numerous outdoor land and water based adventure activities.

People can enjoy pottery, island hopping, historical monuments and storytelling, National Trust estates, the world-famous Marble Arch Caves and the Ulster Canal.

Fermanagh offers a wealth of attractions, unique shopping experiences, a variety of home-produced foods, a burgeoning music scene and is
a perfect location for the ultimate boat trip and phenomenal fishing.

The Orchard County – Ireland’s Ecclesiastical Capital:

County Armagh is known as the Orchard County of Ireland and the Georgian Armagh city, an historic city renowned for its two majestic cathedrals and its seven hills, is the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland.

This is a city which offers a very different experience to Dublin and Belfast but yet it’s accessible to both cities. When you fly into Belfast with
Emerald Airlines from Newquay Airport Cornwall, you’re about an hour from Armagh city – give or take 10 mins depending on traffic.

There are lots of stories to unravel in Armagh. From St Patrick to the Kings of Ulster to studying the skies from the city’s planetarium.

Known as the Orchard County, it offers you a place to think, the chance to unwind, recharge your batteries and have fun. It is a county where sport is high on the agenda with road bowls, Gaelic, rugby and soccer. It celebrates the county’s home grown produce such as the famous Bramley Apple which was awarded PGI status in 2012. Such food and drink festivals allows people to unlock the stories of the land.

Co Armagh has castles, farm tours, cider tours, private dining events, forest parks, lakes, fishing, superb accommodation, beautiful country roads to cycle around, walking trails and much more.


The locals either call it Derry or Londonderry but in 2012 when the city celebrated a year long celebration for the 2013 City of Culture initiative, it was coined Legenderry and the name has kind of stuck.

There are lively pubs in the city, a thriving music scene throughout County Derry, it’s a place of cultural revival, the Bogside murals, the Peace Bridge and more.

The city’s history, its walls, spectacular views of the Atlantic, its bird sanctuaries, forests at Banagher and Ness Wood, waterfalls and much more will give you an experience to remember.

Derry has it all. It has award-winning museums and theatres and lots of water attractions, like Stand Up Paddle boarding, boat tours and the world-famous Clipper Race visits the city. You’ve murals, walking tours of the city and of course there are statues and murals you’ll enjoy. And of course, if you travel around Halloween, you’ll witness one of the most famous Halloween celebrations.

Derry is so accessible from Belfast so when you fly from Newquay you can
make your way to Derry by car, bus or train. This is a city well worth
exploring. Pack your bags and have a Legenderry time.

And while you’re in this neck of the woods and fancy some time beyond the walls, enjoy distilleries, breweries, adventure activities, beaches, cheese making tours, tree trekking and horseback riding.
