Hi Bill, 

I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your road trip around the island, and that you got to see the house your father grew up in! :) 

The Northern Irish Pound Sterling banknotes are indeed a valid means of payment in Northern Ireland and although it is legal tender in the rest of the United Kingdom, a shopkeeper can refuse to take them. I'm so sorry about the inconvenience. Have you reached out to your local bank or currency office yet? They will be able to trade them for normal pound notes. 

Let me know if you have any other questions, and keep me posted! 

Warm regards,

Melin

Thanks for your quick reply Melin. I’m still traveling. Currently in Miami waiting to board a cruise liner. When I return to Australia will visit my local Bank and see if they will exchange them. The Bureaus de Change at airports won’t accept the Northern Ireland Pound Sterling notes.
However, my visit was most enjoyable and I met a lot of interesting people and saw many beautiful and historic places. It was a richly rewarding experience.

Hi Bill, 

That's wonderful! I'm delighted that you enjoyed your visit to the Emerald Isle, and let me know how it goes after you've gotten in touch with your bank after you return. 

For now I wish you an amazing cruise! :) 

Warm regards,

Melin
