Northern Ireland Hostels




Northern Ireland Comments

I grew up in Newcastle and it is far away from everything else. However, I had the most magnificent childhood in Newcastle, as there was always so much to explore. You could ride your horses and bikes just about anywhere -- I loved it.
It's not the nicest place I've visited. It has few nice things to see, but I didn't especially like the city. The only thing I found that was awesome was Belfast Castle in Cave Hill -- that place was charming!
Belfast is a city with a lot of unrest and it is recommended that single women should not walk on the streets alone at night.
Belfast is a lovely place with lovely, friendly people and very helpful. They have a great sense of humor -- great craic.
A good tip is to check out the triangle bounded by Newtownards, Bangor, and Belfast. While driving is somwhat perilous on the narrow roads, if you hire a car and take the A2/A20/A21 and the roads via Craigantlet you get two different experiences of Northern Ireland - the urban metropolis and the country lanes where the only living being you're sharing the view with is a cow or two. People are very friendly and 75% of the city (basically anything that isn't west!) is unaffected by the troubles.
Newcastle is a great night out, shame it's so far away from everywhere!
