Northern Ireland Hostels




Northern Ireland Comments

Kilkeel village is a beautiful town with lots of very good charity shops, coffee shops, and everything you need for a good holiday. It's also very close to the countryside if you want to go for a walk -- and Mournes the town is set in the backdrop of the Mournes and it's very beautiful.
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.
Not safe? Belfast's far friendlier than Dublin! In Belfast people actually smile at you. I've been all over the world and Belfast was one of the most welcoming cities I've ever been to.
I spent nine woderful months in Cushendall and I have very good memories of a very quiet but pleasant time over there.
Belfast is an amazing city. I found it quite safe (same rules apply here as they do anywhere else in the world: don't walk around at 3am by yourself, etc etc) and the people of Belfast are among the friendliest I've ever met.
