Car Travel Through Northern Ireland


The northern part of Ireland is considered as its untamed territories. The landscape is rich and the history is very colourful. Travelling by car in Northern Ireland is the perfect way to see its beauty up close. Travellers can make as many frequent stops as they want and go see its destinations in their own time. Renting a car in Ireland is easy and hassle-free. What’s more it allows you the freedom to explore the country at your own pace. A car trip through Northern Ireland can become a three-day excursion for those so inclined. The trip starts at Dublin. From the city, the first stop is to go to Boyne River Valley, the site of the 1690 Battle of The Boyne. After this stop, drive your car towards the ancient churches of Monasterboice and marvel at the Celtic Crosses inside its walls. By midday the famished can have lunch at Cooley Peninsula. Then it’s off towards Belfast to see the country’s political hotbed. Travellers should stay for the night here and prepare for the second-day trip. On the second day, the first stop in your car trip through Northern Ireland are the Glens of Antrim, from here you can drive to the Causeway Coast and on towards Dunluce Castle. The Bushmills Whiskey Distillery is a must-see, just don’t drink too much of the whiskey samples – remember, you’re still going to drive. The last stop for the day is Derry where you can visit its medieval walls. The last day of the three-day car trip through Northern Ireland brings you to Enniskillen, an island town on Lough Erne. Travellers who love history should not pass up the Passage Grave at Lough Crew, which is said to be older than the Pyramids at Giza. The last stop in your three-day car trip is the ancient Trim Castle and then it’s straight back to Dublin to return your car rental.
