The most memorable trips are so much more than four walls and a bed for the night. They feature unique elements that escalate an ordinary trip through unforgettable experiences. During your trip to Northern Ireland, prepare to switch off from the mundane day-to-day and embrace your adventurous spirit.

Spend an uninterrupted evening with the stars

Cast away to Finn Lough, a 75-acre peninsula resort in the Fermanagh Lakelands, and stargaze from your bed in a secluded forest bubble dome. Don plush robes and slippers, lie back in your four-poster bed and watch the starry night skies up above with zero interruptions. Enjoy an unrivalled nights sleep in your own insulated bubble, and then tuck into a delicious breakfast the following morning. Afterwards head out and get back to nature with kayaks, bikes, fishing and bushcraft before coming back that evening to toast marshmallows over your own fire pit. Definitely different. Unbelievably worth it. 

Stretch your cares away 

Say ‘Namaste’ to Blaney Spa and Yoga Centre in Fermanagh. This tranquil yoga retreat in the peaceful Fermanagh Lakes district offers an oasis of calm and the chance to spend the night in a traditional Irish cottage. Gently stretch your cares away in the airy studio before taking time for yourself in a sauna or hot tub. Then top it all off with walks around the orchard of Innish Beg Farm and some of the finest views over Lough Erne.  The spa also offers a range of massage treatments, aromatherapy and reflexology. 

Feel the rush 

You’ll be testing different kinds of reflex as you hurl yourself down the green fields at The Jungle NI. This outdoor activity centre nestled in the woodland of the rolling Sperrin Mountains offers a right good gamut of exciting (and slightly mad) activities for the adrenaline junkie. Zorbing and paintballing are the main attractions, but you can keep it going on the high wire treetop adventure courses and forest segways before taking your shot at the clay pigeon shooting. Once you've worn yourself out, you can retire to your very own glamping pod and enjoy a BBQ in the great outdoors.   

Chill out in the countryside 

Blessingbourne is an historic 550-acre country estate on the edge of the Clogher Valley. It is a great spot for a rural retreat with plenty to keep you busy. Stay in the cosy gate lodge or book yourself into one of their fine apartments before enjoying the private lakes and woodlands on foot or by bike. Anglers will love the chance to fish in peace and be sure to pay a visit to the working farm and the quirky costume and carriage museum.  

A break for the bookworm 

Celebrate the life and poetry of the wonderful Seamus Heaney with a stay in the literary-themed Laurel Villa, a boutique guest house in the countryside that inspired Ireland's greatest poet.  

Take a guided tour of Heaney Country with Eugene Kielty, a friend of the late poet laureate, and discover more about the man, his words and the places that influenced his early life.   

A stay at Laurel Villa is also rewarding for visitors wishing to trace their ancestry in the areas around Magherafelt, Derry~Londonderry and Tyrone. The boutique guest house boasts a vast collection of local history books and genealogical material to assist you in your search. 

Switch off at a thermal spa 

You’ll experience the ultimate in luxury relaxation at the unique Thermal Village and Spa at Galgorm. Retreat to this idyllic woodland location and let the staff spoil you with relaxing treatments and attention until you feel rejuvenated.  

Stay in a luxurious suite or a secluded log cabin, soothe tired muscles in the infinity hydrotherapy pool, have a splash in the outdoor bathtubs or brave the cooling snow cabin for year-round wintry fun. Delightful.
