20 Surprising Sights in Northern Ireland

Amazing Seafood

Speaking of seafood… be sure to eat some while you’re in Northern Ireland. Its seaside location lends to an abundance of fresh fish. I recommend Mourne Seafood Bar in Belfast. The menu changes daily depending on the catch.

Beef Aged in Himalayan Salt Chambers

For meat eaters, be on the lookout for beef aged in Himalayan salt chambers. Hannan Meats and Kettyle Irish Foods are two Northern Irish companies servicing some of the United Kingdom’s top restaurants with top-notch beef. Deane’s Meat Locker in Belfast is a great place to taste their wares.

A Taste of Fermanagh

The Fermanagh lake lands are more than just a series of islands with ancient ruins. Today, many of those islands raise some of the tastiest beef and pork in the world. Erne Water Taxi offers a Lough Erne Food Trail tour that provides a sample of the best in regional cuisine with snackable stops on many of the lake’s most famous islands.

American City Guide: Chicago

One of the largest and most underrated cities in the United States is Chicago. In fact, Chicago ranked first in Time Out’s 2018 City Life Index, topping other highly-ranked cities like New York City, Melbourne, and London. There are so many incredible things to do in Chicago, plus it lacks the hectic craziness of other vacation destinations in the United States. It’s a great option for a fun weekend trip, even if you’ll never see everything the city has to offer in just two days.

American City Guide: New York City

New York City is the most populous city in the United States and has a reputation as the most vibrant and thrilling vacation destination on the continent. It’s the home of New York Fashion Week, the United Nations, Broadway, Wall Street, and the Statue of Liberty. Its fast pace inspired the phrase “New York minute” and even if you only have $5 per day to spend, you can still enjoy every aspect of this incredible metropolis.
