Welcome to Northern Ireland

We spent just a few short days there in the summer of 2011, but they were incredibly interesting and inspiring. We were able to learn more about it’s troubled past, meet some very friendly and hospitable residents, and see some spectacular scenery. Those few days stand out as some of our favourites from our whole two months in Ireland.
