Northern Ireland Suggestions--and Ferry to Scotland???

Jump to last reply

Greetings I've been to the gorgeous Antrim Coast many times in conjunction with working at the Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival. I'll be returning in a few weeks and am looking for some different things to see and do.

We love walking, scenery, exploring castles and ruins--and we've loved our past visits.
Here's what we've done in the past:

Giant's Causeway
Dunluce Castle
Carrick-a-rede
Carrickfergus Castle (it was FREEZING!!!)
The Dark Hedges
Ballintoy Harbour (one of our favorite places)
(not interested in Bushmill's Distillery--don't drink!)
Glens of Antrim

What are we missing??? It doesn't have to be on the Antrim Coast--but within an hour or two of Belfast--or the coast.

We took a quick day trip to Derry--and will likely return. We'll have 5 or 6 days.

Also ... was wondering if it would be worth taking the ferry to Scotland (bearing in mind that it will be late February)? Would there be tours available from that area? Is that a scenic area?

Thanks for your help!
