  1. Family Events
    Northern Ireland is bursting at the seams with things to do for families. While you’re here on holidays, you might just catch one of these great family events going on. Or maybe you’d like to book your holiday to coincide with one. So, here are just a few to whet your appetite.
  2. Sports Events
    We love sport in Northern Ireland. If there’s a ball nearby, we’ll kick it, pass it or hit it with a bat, hurl, stick, cue, club or racquet. We love everything four-wheeled and anything two-wheeled. We love bouts in the ring, pucks on the ice, and run-ins on the flat and over jumps. And if something needs throwing, lifting, sailing or running after, we’ll give it our best shot.
  3. Food & Drink Events
    There’s so much happening on the food front in Northern Ireland these days that it’s sometimes hard to keep up. New inventive and talented chefs coming through. Local food and drink artisan businesses thriving. Here’s just a taster of what you’ll find when you get here...
  4. Arts & Theatre Events
    Northern Ireland is a land of poets, writers and dreamers. We’ve given the world Heaney and Friel, C.S Lewis and MacNeice, and Booker-prize winning Anna Burns. There’s a vibrant arts scene happening here, and here’s a taste of what’s going on...
  5. Music Events
    The home of Ash, Snow Patrol, Two Door Cinema Club, Bicep and, of course, Van Morrison, Northern Ireland is renowned the world over for its music and song.
