Discover Northern Ireland on a cruise

With wild, rugged coastlines and a capital city steeped in history, Northern Ireland is bordered by the Irish Sea close to Belfast, and the Atlantic Ocean to its west. The rural landscapes of Northern Ireland have numerous tales to tell from over the centuries, including many based around religion and war, but also of its industrial heritage. Many areas are home to an abundance of wildlife nature, including Lough Neagh, covering over 160 miles of the country. 

In the Footsteps of Giants

The UNESCO World Heritage Site - Giant's Causeway, is one of Northern Irelands most well-known landmarks. Said to be created over 50 million years ago by the mythological giant Finn McCool, this impressively symmetrical rock formation comprises of over 40,000 basalt columns, formed when McCool was fleeing from the anger of Scottish giant Benandonner. 

The Titanic Museum

Located just outside the capital city of Belfast, the Titanic Museum tells the story of how the fateful ship was built and other events leading up to the night of 14th April 1912. On display are many artefacts retrieved from the ship, and a replica stateroom showing how guests on board would have travelled. You'll be hard pushed not to be moved by the stories of those who survived, and remembering those who lost their lives. 

A cruise to Northern Ireland is almost a history lesson in itself, so join a Fred. Olsen cruise to Belfast and discover more.
