Welcome to Northern Ireland. It is located in the northeastern corner of Ireland and is considered a province by some, and an area by others but most just say it is just uniquely Northern Ireland. Check out our Northern Ireland shore excursions for your upcoming cruise!

Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom along with Wales, Ireland, Great Britain, and Scotland. The capital city is Belfast. It was created in 1921 as part of a conflict when British Parliament divided it from Ireland. This is part of the conflict that led up to the Troubles in the late 1960s and early 70s.
Visitors can also see the Giant's Causeway which are strange interlocking columns caused by an ancient volcanic eruption forcing columns upwards. UNESCO awarded it as a World Heritage Site. Other popular attractions include Enniskillen Castle and Mussenden Temple.
