Why choose Ireland

Those looking for a honeymoon within Europe can think of sunny countries such as Croatia, Greece, Italy, Mallorca, or Ibiza. The islands in the Mediterranean offer a lot of sun guarantee and there is always a romantic atmosphere. If you want to go the adventurous direction, you can also think of northern areas for an active honeymoon such as Ireland.

Ireland knows how to cram many cool sights in a small area. It is the kind of place that reminds you of how beautiful and how strange this earth actually is. The strange basalt columns of the Giant’s Causeway, Dunluce Castle, and the Carrick-a-Rede suspension bridge. Even in one day, you can visit many of the highlights of Northern Ireland.

Ireland is one of the most special countries In Europe. There is an incredible amount to see and experience in Ireland. The beautiful unspoilt nature, in particular, makes a huge impression on tourists. The vast green hilly landscape with countless valleys and spectacular mountains provide beautiful views. But besides nature, there is much more to see in Ireland.

The Giants Causeway

The Giants Causeway is one of those places that is on everyone’s bucket list so why not explore during your honeymoon.  Keep in mind that it can rain so bring an umbrella, but what is Ireland without rain? These strange octagonal basalt columns were formed during a volcano eruption and can be found in Scotland as well as in Ireland. Don’t forget to purchase your National Trust Touring Pass in advance if you want to visit the Giants Causeway and a number of other attractions in Northern Ireland.

This is how the legend came into existence, which gave the Giants Causeway its name. It is a story of two giants. There are different versions why Finn MacCoul builds a bridge to Scotland. But once he arrives, he discovers that the Scottish Benandonner is huge. He runs home and his wife Uma disguises him as a baby and cradles him. When the Scottish giant sees the baby Finn, he decides that this must be a giant and on his flight back to Scotland he destroys the bridge. Only the leftovers on both sides can still be seen.
