Unlike the place travelers found several decades ago, the Northern Ireland of today is a rejuvenated and dynamic region attracting increasing amounts of tourism. Belfast, the region’s biggest urban center and capital, is a hip city with vibrant nightlife and a thriving gourmet culinary scene, providing an extensive list of indulgent things to do. The region’s renowned coastline, featuring the World Heritage-listed Giant’s Causeway, is an attractive holiday destination for hikers, cyclists, photographers, and other adventurers of all descriptions. Northern Ireland has seen more than its fair share of political and economic unrest, yet the people of this region have always remained proud of their cultural and artistic heritage, providing visitors with a warm hospitality hard to find almost anywhere else in the world.
