A new video released by Tourism Ireland showcases a variety of places to see and things to do in Northern Ireland.

The video is called ‘Ten Amazing Places in Northern Ireland’. It was shot with a drone cam and shows off the beauty that can be found north of the border.

It features the Giant’s Causeway, the Mourne Mountains, the Sperrins, Carrick-a Rede Rope Bridge and Lough Erne. Fans of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones will also recognise the famous Dark Hedges, which were a filming location for the show.

The drone cam has captured stunning footage of the natural beauty, and fascinating history, of the North which includes coastal and mountain vistas, castles and volcanic landscapes.

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “Northern Ireland is packed with natural and historic gems and the availability of drones has allowed us to showcase these places in a way that hasn’t been done before.

“Our latest film features stunning aerial footage – showing Northern Ireland at its very best – which will help entice prospective visitors everywhere to come and holiday here this year.”

Northern Ireland is bursting with things to see and do. As Tourism Ireland’s video showed, many people enjoy seeing the sights in slightly less conventional manners such as kayaking. It is another great way to see the stunning cliffs on the coastline of Northern Ireland.

It isn’t all about the scenery in the mountains, cliffs and lakes either. While in the North, it is worth checking out some of the towns and cities such as Belfast, Derry and Armagh.

All of these places would make for a perfect city break – with fascinating histories, lots to see and do and plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy in the evenings.
