We are coming to Northern Ireland next June.  We plan to stay 3 nights in Carickfergus so we can get down to Belfast, we have a cottage booked on the Causeway Coast for 1 week.  We still have 4 nights to plan, ideally in a cottage or a B&B that can cope with a coeliac diet.  We do not know what the best area to head to, we love walking and exploring historical places, whether to go to Inishowen, the Atlantic coast in Donegal, around Loch Neagh?  Never been to Northern Ireland so looking for some suggestions of places we shouldn't miss.  We do not like to stay in busy places much preferring peace and quiet and the countryside

Hello, Celia

The Causeway Coast is a beautiful part of Northern Ireland to stay in and tour around, places like Carrickfergus Castle, Carrick-a-Rede, the Giants Causeway to name but a few.

Lough Neagh is a large freshwater lake in Northern Ireland and would be easily reached from Carrickfergus during the first part of your stay. There is a wonderful tour that you could take to learn more about the area around Lough Neagh, the Western Fort Tour. Explore the fortifications along the western shores of Lough Neagh and learn about the Great O’Neill.

Inishowen and County Donegal will have plenty of great places to see and stay. Coeliac diets are well known in the area as many suffer from the condition, so this wouldn't be a problem for most B&B's and restaurants. I have made a scrapbook for you on information regarding B&B accommodation and places to visit in the Inishowen and County Donegal area. 

You mention the love of the countryside, would you be interested in walks or cycling?

Some of our industry friends and members will have some extra suggestions I'm sure

Regards

Walking and Hiking has become very popular in Ireland over the last few years. We have an article or two on the very subject that would be worth a look at.

Walking in Ireland
Rathlin Island Walking Trails

There is also some great information on cycling on the island of Ireland, with some routes and other information to follow up. 

I'm sure our fellow members will have some suggestions too.

Let us know where you decide on for the last few days of your time with us,

Martin

You could also consider a visit to the City of Armagh.  The are has a very majestic landscape is rich in cultural heritage and is set amongst the splendour of rolling drumlins, parks, open spaces and legendary orchards.
There is so much to do, places to visit, fine eateries so why not have a look at our website www.visitarmagh.com

We have now booked the Harbour Inn in Buncrana on Inishowen.  it seems a good place for us to be able to explore from.  i now need to be able to get maps and guide books for the area so we can plan what we want to see whilst we are away.  3 nights in Carrick Fergus which gives us 1 day in Belfast and another day to explore.  7 nights on the Giants causeway coast, including a trip to Rathlin island and then 4 night in Buncrana.  Really looking forward to it.  Thank you to everyone for your help.

If you know of any books maps etc which you can recommend that would be great.

Hi Celia

The trip you have planned sounds amazing and, no doubt, you are spoilt for choice. You mentioned that you enjoy walking and exploring historical places and The Walled City of Derry-Londonderry certainly ticks both these boxes. Derry-Londonderry is ideal for exploring and walking through the bustling streets of the only completely Walled City in Ireland and the British Isles as you listen to the echoes of 1450 years of history. It is a place steeped in history and culture with many attractions such as the 17th Century City Walls, Guildhall, World Famous Murals, St Columb’s Cathedral as well as many fascinating museums and exhibitions. The city also provides great options for tours, leisure, shopping and dining. Situated on the doorstep of the Causeway Coastal Route and the Inishowen Peninsula/Wild Atlantic Way, the city also provides excellent accommodation options with a wide variety of hotels, B&B's, guesthouses and hostels if you choose to spend the night here. More detailed information on what the city has to offer can be found in our official visitor guide here.   

We would also invite you to contact us should you have any inquiries or questions at all. We are more than happy to help. Our details are:

We are definitely planning to spend a day walking around Derry it sounds fascinating.  If anyone can recommend a place that serves good wholesome gluten free food that would be great.
