Where Else to Go? Maybe Cork?

Jump to last reply

I’m lucky enough to do a work-related trip to Belfast almost every year—late February into the beginning of March. I typically add 5 – 7 days of vacation before going to Belfast.

Over the course of 7 or 8 previous trips we’ve visited many areas, both in the North, and in the Republic. In the North, we’ve been to the spectacular Antrim Coast and surrounds several times. We love its rugged beauty. We also enjoyed Derry/Londonderry.

In the Republic, we’ve driven the entire west coast; spent time on the Dingle Peninsula; stayed near the marvelous Rock of Cashel; Donegal; Dublin (visiting Newgrange and Powerscourt), and Wicklow.

Our interests are primarily nature walks and beautiful scenery—as opposed to big cities and museums. We’d welcome suggestions for somewhere new to visit--someplace with the natural beauty of the Antrim Coast or Dingle Peninsula. We’ve never been to Cork, and are considering that. Any thoughts? If not ... I'll happily return to the Antrim Coast.

PS. We’d love to visit Scotland, but we’re thinking it’s the wrong time of year for the weather.
PPS. I can't make it work to select multiple tags so I'll also post under the U.K.
