Best Family-Friendly Destinations to Visit in Northern Ireland
From breathtaking natural coastlines to lively Irish cities or traditional seaside holidays, you're spoilt for choice in Northern Ireland. To help you plan your trip, here are the top 3 family-friendly destinations to visit in Northern Ireland.
Derry is the second-largest city in Northern Ireland and is the only Irish city surrounded by its original city walls. Inside its walls is a treasure trove of historical gems exploring Derry's fascinating and sometimes bloody past. Check out Derry Tower Museum, which showcases the city's history from its monastic origins up to the present day. Kids can explore a range of interactive exhibits and discover an authentic Armada shipwreck that sunk in 1588. Once you've had your fill of museums, you can make a trip to Barrys Amusements, a charming theme park. Many of the activities are undercover, so it's a good idea even during rainy weather! If you're lucky enough to catch sunshine, plan a trip to the beautiful Portrush Whiterocks Beach.
Northern Ireland's capital city welcomes almost 9.5 million visitors from across the globe every year and is a fantastic place to experience with children. Belfast Zoo is a popular family attraction located in the tranquil Belfast countryside. The zoo is home to 120 species of animal and offers stunning panoramic views of Belfast Lough on the east coast of Northern Ireland. There's plenty of events happening all year round, so be sure to check the zoo's calendar before your visit. For curious kids, check out 'W5', Belfast's award-winning science and discovery centre. With 250 interactive exhibits and science demonstrations and temporary exhibits held every day, it's an easy way to feed growing inquisitive minds.
If you're seeking a more relaxed family getaway, consider the seaside town of Ballycastle, located on the northeasternmost coastal tip of Northern Ireland. Experience a traditional Irish seaside holiday and make the most of a family-friendly promenade and beach. Hop on a passenger ferry from Ballycastle across the Sea of Moyle and spend a day on Rathlin Island, home to only 140 people. The island offers visitors a range of walking trails, or consider hiring a bicycle to get around faster. A top tip is to visit during 'puffin season' from April to July to catch sight of the surprisingly photogenic seabird as well as a diverse array of other island wildlife.
