With a growing array of open-air bars, arts venues, and restaurants, Belfast is quickly becoming an attractive destination for travelers. Stay at the design-forward Bullitt Hotel (inspired by the Steve McQueen film), which opened in October with casual, well-appointed rooms and complimentary grab-and-go breakfast granola. Check out arts organization Seedhead, which runs street-art tours and hosts pop-up cabarets around the city. The Michelin-starred OX and EIPIC lead the fine-dining pack, but also visit Permit Room, with its internationally inspired breakfast and locally roasted coffee. Noteworthy new nightlife spots include the Muddlers Club, a stylish restaurant and cocktail bar in the trendy Cathedral Quarter, and Vandal, a graffiti-adorned pizza place that turns into a late-night club, on the top floor of a 17th-century pub.—Nell McShane Wulfhart If you’ve a taste for whiskey, then your exploration of the coast should include a visit to the distillery at Bushmills, only 4km southwest of the causeway. It’s been distilling whiskey since 1608, making it the world’s oldest (legal) distillery. Along the way, you’ll discover that it’s made with Irish barley and water from the local river before being matured in oak barrels. All very interesting, sure, but the reward for the crash-course in distilling is a sip of the blessed stuff. The nearby Bushmills Inn is one of the best places to stay in Northern Ireland, with a superb restaurant and lovely rooms. A spectacular ‘fore!’ “… I went to Belgrade with no expectations of décor, images, gaiety, anything interesting, and Even the casual hacker now I am a complete victim of its seductive will know that Royal Portrush is regularly featured on any list charm that I must say goodbye to it with the of the world’s best courses.

The lesser-known but equally beautiful Portstewart Golf Club is only a few kilometers away; its Strand championship course hosted the 2017 Irish Open. And, if you’re looking for a memorable bite, the local strand is home to Harry’s Shack, a fabulous restaurant in an old shack managed by the National Trust. You’ll need sea legs and a steady gaze to cross the 20m-long, 1m-wide rope bridge that links the mainland to the tiny island of Carrick-a-Rede. The bridge sways and lilts 30m above the swirling sea below, but don’t worry: it’s closed if the winds get too hairy. Once you’ve reached the island, there are gorgeous views of the rugged coastline and Rathlin Island. It’s incredibly popular so be sure to turn up early to secure a ticket in high season . It’s not often that a classic bucket-and-spade beach town emerges as a gourmet hotspot, but that’s exactly what’s happened to Ballycastle, at the eastern end of the Causeway Coast. Highly recommended is Caroline Redmond’s Ballycastle Food Tour, a three-hour exploration of the very best of local producers, including the seafood chowder at the Central Wine Bar and the friands – sweet almond cakes – from the Ursa Minor Bakery.

Thankfully the road will soon be closed to traffic, meaning visitors can appreciate this stunning bit of green-fingered artistry without the cars. If you’re looking for more Game of Thrones locations, Ballintoy Harbour, Cushendun Caves, Downhill Beach and Murlough Bay also appear in the show. 6
