It’s been almost one week since I have been on the road -- exploring Northern Ireland has been such a dream come true for me. It was beyond my expectations. Nature never disappoints. I had someone to show me the most beautiful places around the country and we squeezed in many places in just a few days.

Northern Ireland’s spots are well known worldwide thanks to the TV series Game of Thrones. It is a small area, but with many magical things to see and explore. The northern coastline left me breathless with its stunning vistas and endless shades of green.

Here are some of the most iconic places to visit if you ever have the chance to explore Northern Ireland...



Mussenden Temple, Co. Derry

The Mussenden Temple perches dramatically on a 120 ft cliff top near Castlerock, high above the Atlantic Ocean on the north-western coast of Northern Ireland , offering spectacular views westwards over Downhill Strand towards Magilligan Point and County Donegal.



The Dark Hedges, Co. Antrim

The Dark Hedges is an eerily beautiful road. The Stuart family planted the rows of beech trees designed to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their mansion, Gracehill House, named after James Stewart's wife Grace Lynd. It’s such a mystical walk under the beech trees...

Giant’s Causeway, Co. Antrim

The Giant's Causeway is made up of over 40,000 polygonal basalt rock columns, formed by the ancient volcanic landscape and stretching along the coastline like a series of gigantic stepping stones.
