Top 100 Attractions Review

Northern Ireland has now turned a vital corner in its history and tourists are flocking here from all over the world to see its jewels that were for many years, completely off the tourism radar. I used to be a huge fan of North Wales but now Northern Ireland holds a special place in my heart also. Belfast Castle is one of those once hidden jewels, but now uncovered, shines brighter than it ever did before. Nestled on the slopes of the Cavehill Country Park this castle is steeped in Northern Ireland's history and very much worth a visit. Thanks to Belfast City Council this castle over a ten year period has had a 2 million pound refurbishment which once visited, is clear to see. Another house certainly worth a visit is Malone House which is also looked after and maintained by Belfast City Council. Just two more reasons to visit Belfast!
