Awaken your Giant Spirit

  1. Golf
    In geographical terms, Northern Ireland is not a big country. But when it comes to golf, make no mistake: we’re a giant. With over 90 golf clubs, including the legendary Royal County Down and Royal Portrush, not to mention our Major Champions Rory McIlroy, Darren Clarke, Graeme McDowell, Stephanie Meadow and Fred Daly.
  2. Tours & Excursions
    Whatever your interest, if there’s somewhere you want to see, or something you want to experience in Northern Ireland, there’s a way to do it. Ulsterbus Tours runs day trips from Belfast to all the main attractions right across Northern Ireland. You just have to pick where you want to go first.
  3. Giant's Causeway from the water's edge, looking back towards the coast. Waves are crashing on to the basalt columns.

    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. 

  4. Choose your Next Giant Adventure
    If you like to make the most of every moment you're on holiday, we've created an interactive video to help you choose which kinds of activities you should be booking for your trip to Northern Ireland.
  5. Titanic
    The chances of you doing just one thing in Belfast are pretty slim. But if you were to, it would have to be a visit the birthplace of the most legendary ship in the world: RMS Titanic.
  6. Seamus Heaney HomePlace, Word Hoard
    While much of Seamus Heaney’s writing is inspired by words and ways of life specific to this area, his human relationships and household objects, which we bring to the fore in our exhibition, are familiar to many.
    1. The basalt stones at the giants causeway stretch into the sea
      Follow in the footsteps of giants at Northern Ireland's iconic UNESCO World Heritage Site. The basalt columns of the Causeway landscape were left by volcanic eruptions 60 million years ago. All visitors are encouraged to book Visitor Experience tickets online in advance of arrival onsite.
