Northern Ireland Photos

I hope you enjoy some of the sights around Northern Ireland, i have been to all of these several times. They are well worth a visit if you ever set foot over here for  a visit.

Over the years i have worked in three of the buildings, Belfast City Hall, Belfast Castle and Stormont Castle.

There will be another post with more sights coming soon.

Belfast city hall and stands in the city centre. Tours are held all day and there is also a restaurant open to the public.


People relaxing in the city hall grounds on a summer’s day.



Stormont Parliament building is where the Northern Ireland Assembly sits.






Stormont castle is used as offices and has a few function rooms.


The giants causeway, at Portrush, Co.Antrim. It was formed by volcanic eruptions and cooled by the sea to form the shapes.


Dunluce castle on the Antrim coast.


Belfast botanical gardens green house ( part of. )

Belfast museum  building is in the back ground



The palm house in part of the botanical gardens green house. They are plants from all over the world.





The mountains of Mourne on a summer’s day. Every year thousands of people take part in the Mourne walk, following the wall from start to finish.





Carrick-a-reed rope bridge.

What a drop, it takes you to a small island with only one man’s house on it who fish’s for wild salmon.



Belfast castle, overlooking the whole of Belfast. Many people would spend the day here going on the different walks.

Excellent restaurant.


The marble Arch Caves, it is a great tour which i have been on three times.

This is called the porridge pot.



To get into the caves, first of all you have five minutes in a boat.


Just one of the many caves, at the lowest point you are about 1/3 of a mile underground. The worst part climbing all the  steps, hill, etc; to get out.

Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark.

The First International Geopark in the World!

  1. Nice pictures Harry, thanks for the tour of ireland.

  2. I love the picture of Dunluce castle on the Antrim coast. Can you imagine living there? you could almost write a story or poem around that picture.
    I love the look of the mountains of Mourne. I’m a wide open spaces person 😕

  3. PIP, i have been to them all on a good day:) they are so peaceful.

  4. One of these days I really should visit Northern Ireland.

  5. I loved this photo tour. Thanks for posting it. The giants causeway and Marble Arch Caves were particulaly interesting. Hope you have a great weekend. As usual I’m running far behind when it comes to my blogging, and that’s because making a living must come first.
