Green Getaways

When it comes to choosing a holiday these days, more of us are considering the environmental impact of where we go and what we do. There’s actually a lot more to feel good about, when you make your getaway a little greener and spend that extra little bit of time getting to know the locals and what’s special about where they live.

    Top things to do in Northern Ireland

    You could spend a lifetime in Northern Ireland and still not see it all. Much of that is down to the ever-changing mood of the surrounding seas and the seasonal shifts in colour on the slopes of mountains and the shores of lakes. It has much to do with our people, their endeavour and their giant spirit.
