Northern Ireland

Out into the countryside

Today we left Belfast and rented a vehicle for the next 5 days to travel around Northern Ireland and into Ireland. Our first stop of the day was in Bangor for a cappuccino and a scone. It was a pretty little seaside town and lots of locals were out and about enjoying sunshine, warm temperatures and Easter celebrations.
After we left Bangor we came across a huge field of canola in bloom. We continued south down the coastline to a little town called Portaferry where we caught a ferry across the Strangford Lough to the town of Strangford. We had a light lunch there before heading west across the country enjoying lovely backroads and scenery. As we drove along we noticed flags as we entered different towns that identified the owners as either republicans or unionists in that area.
We’ve enjoyed another beautiful sunny day here in Northern Ireland. Today’s temperature was +22c! Our B&B for the night was located near the town of Dungannon. After settling into the B&B we headed out to a local pub for dinner.
