Bushmills ©
Bushmills is a village on the north coast of County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Change things up with these side-trips from Bushmills: Derry (Hands Across the Divide Monument, City Walls, &more) and Largantea Picnic Area (in Limavady). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Giant's Causeway, kick back and relax at Portrush East Strand, snap pictures at Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, and view the masterpieces at The Puffin Gallery.

To find ratings, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Bushmills online itinerary maker.

London to Bushmills is an approximately 6.5- hour combination of train and flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of train, flight, and bus. In May, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Tue) early enough to go by car to Belfast.

Belfast ©
A city with character, Belfast remains a great place for a leisurely exploration, as it is still relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists, who usually opt to visit Dublin instead.
Explore Belfast's surroundings by going to Omagh (Dun Uladh Cultural Heritage Centre, The Abingdon Collection, &more) and Coast Rd (in Larne). The adventure continues: ponder the world of politics at City Hall, examine the collection at SS Nomadic, browse the eclectic array of goods at St. George's Market, and explore the world behind art at Ulster Museum.

To find maps, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Belfast sightseeing tool.

Traveling by car from Bushmills to Belfast takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or take a bus. In June, daily temperatures in Belfast can reach 20°C, while at night they dip to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
