The northernmost reaches of Ireland hold
special appeal. Belfast will surprise you! Belfast is a Victorian city. The
ill-fated Titanic was built here. The DeLorean was built in Northern Ireland,
too. The Giant's Causeway, one of the wonders of the world, is on the north
coast. St. Patrick is buried in the North. The most intact walled city in
Europe is here, too - Derry. At every corner, you'll find something special in
your tour of Northern Ireland.
