Hello.  I'm planning a trip to Northern Ireland and will definitely visit Belfast.  I'm also wondering where to stay outside the city.  I like to find a little cottage/B&B where I can enjoy some of the beautiful scenery and still be in or near a village.  Does anyone know the country well enough to give me some recommendations?  Also, is a visit to Londonderry also a must see?

Thank you.

Hi Rhonda,

It's really great to hear you're planning a visit over to Northern Ireland!

Some of my favourite spots along the Causeway Coastal Route include the Giants Causeway, and  Carrick-a-rede bridge to Dunluce Castle.  Breathtaking! Maybe you'd enjoy a wee visit there as well.

Belfast is an amazingly vibrant city with so much to offer. The food markets get me every time, and of course, Titanic Belfast is an experience like no other. 

Should you have the time, I really think Derry~Londonderry is well worth the visit. Walking the Wall, crossing the Peace Bridge and gazing at the rivers....I find it just a profoundly beautiful city. 

Your thoughts on where to stay are just fantastic.  Please free to check out our Accommodations Tool for some ideas. Quiet cottages and B&Bs are one of the most lovely ways to rest and recharge after a day out.  I'd love to hear from our Community members as to where they'd suggest staying - maybe some special spots that hold memories for them.

Thank you for the helpful information.  Can you recommend a village to stay at the end or near the end of that drive?  I did see some pictures and saw some beautiful villages but there were no names to refer to.

Thank you!

Hi Rhonda,
I am delighted to learn that you intend to visit Northern Ireland, and I thoroughly recommend that you explore the Causeway Coastal Route. This stunningly beautiful route stretches from Belfast all the way to Derry-Londonderry, threading its way through many quaint villages. Cushendall and Cushendun and well placed for exploring the Glens of Antrim – beautiful river valleys - while Bushmills and Castlerock are in a good location for exploring the northerly section of the coastline with the Giant’s Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and the Mussenden Temple.
Might I suggest you go to the accommodation search on our website, whereby you can put in a location and bring up self-catering properties in that area. https://www.visitcausewaycoastandglens.com/ You might just see your dream cottage!
I hope this helps and that you end up having a wonderful time.
King regards,
Mary.
