For a delightful short break, shopping trip or relaxing weekend, the Emerald Isle is a great choice. AFerry offer all the UK to Ireland crossings making the whole booking process as easy as ABC. Just go online and compare the timings and prices and book there and then, on your tablet, mobile or laptop. Both Ireland and Northern Irish ports are available.
For a great city break try Belfast where a visit to the City Hall, Cathedral Quarter and The Ulster Travel & Folk Museum are unmissable. Belfast is great for shopping, it is home to the best Indoor Market in the UK (2014) - St Georges, a Victorian Market. It is also where the Titanic was built so the White Star Line should be on your hit list. Eat at The Merchant's Hotel or Molly's Yard and you will not want to come home!
As a complete contrast, the wild open scenery of Eire is on the doorstep of the capital, Dublin. The Ancient East can be lazily explored by car, a three or five day itinerary is perfectly do-able and takes in some lovely views. Driving south from the city towards the Wicklow Mountains, on the first day is less than 70 kilometers, stop at the Sally Gap Mountain for some spectacular views over the woods, hills and stunning landscapes that can truly take your breath away. Carry on via Glendalough, with many glassy lakes to Kildare, home of the National Stud.
