Though it may be small, Northern Ireland is packed with culture, beautiful scenery, and all sorts of places to see and explore. From castles to mountains, visitors really are spoilt for choice when looking for the ideal day out. Here are Culture Trip’s top six recommended day trips in Northern Ireland.
For some really ancient history, Navan Fort is a great destination. It was the royal seat of the King of Ulster, with history dating back almost 6,000 years. Now, there is a visitor’s centre with reconstructed houses, ancient artefacts and even an archaeology experience for kids. If you’re a bit less interested in that, the woodlands routes around the area are to die for. Navan Fort is just an hour west of Belfast.
