Hi all, we have a 3-week trip to Ireland in June. We've figured out most of the first couple of weeks, but are trying to decide how to spend the last part in Northern Ireland. Specifically, we have 3 nights for Derry and Belfast and were assuming we'd want 2 nights in Belfast since it's a bigger city. Now I'm wondering if we'd rather spend 2 nights in Derry instead. We're interested in seeing some of the history of the troubles, especially murals, etc... It sounds like both cities have that. I know Belfast has the Titanic museum, which I'm curious about, but isn't a must-do. Here's what we have sketched out currently:
Day 14 Inishmor
Day 15 Donegal - drive from Rossaveel (Ferry) to Donegal, see Cong? Sligo/Strandhill?
Day 16 Derry - from Donegal to Derry, see Slieve League??, Glenveagh National Park??
Day 17 Belfast - From Derry to Belfast see Giant's Causeway
Day 18 Belfast - Spend a day in Belfast
Day 19 Dublin - From Belfast to Dublin, stop in at Lowden guitars
Day 20 Depart
If we stay 2 nights in Derry instead, we would do a day trip to Giant's causeway probably and then straight to Belfast the next day. Any input on which city you'd rather spend more time in?
Also, I know it's a bit of a rush, but I promise that the 3 days before this section we're staying in one place and we have a few other longer stays before that including 3 nights in Dublin at the start! :)
