... simply because it's so good. Swarming with tourists but still wild and magical both places are well worth a visit and it's obvious why these are (and Derry isn't) on tourist wish list.

It was during the drive from the Causeway to Derry that I saw how epic Irish rain could be. I could not believe the amount of rain I was seeing; it would put a tropical monsoon to shame.
