We made our way to Belfast via Dublin and spent our first evening pretty quietly.

The next day we had organised a day trip out to the Giant's Causeway which also included stops at a rope bridge over the ocean, a castle and a whiskey distillery.

The rope bridge was at a beautiful spot but was £5 just to walk across so we skipped that and just walked around the cliffs and took in the scenery.

The Giant's Causeway was amazing, it really doesn't look like it can be natural. It's all hexagonal blocks that look like a path leading to the sea. It's very cool.

Belfast itself was interesting. We checked out some very cool undercover markets and got ourselves some typical Belfast snacks, then wandered over to the streets best known for the murals. There weren't as many as we were expecting but the interesting thing was how up to date they were. There were a few referencing "The Troubles" but many more talking about current conflicts around the world. It was quite cool.

The next day we made our way back down to Dublin for the last couple of days before heading back to Bristol.
