      Nice family holiday

      We stayed at the Culloden Estate in May of 2012. We are a family of 5 with two young children and an infant. We stayed in one of the family rooms. The room included one king bed and one single bed. Not ideal for a family with more than one child. The room was comfortably arranged and the beds were soft with down duvets. The bathroom was a bit tight with an elevated bathtub, again, not ideal for young children. Unfortunately, we stayed during a heat wave and our room was roasting hot. The family rooms are located in the addition built onto the original castle. It was not equipped with air conditioning so needless to say it was very uncomfortable. We had a garden view room so the afternoon sun soaked our room. Even with the curtains closed and two fans (graciously provided by the staff) it was hot at night and difficult to sleep.

      The family room we were provided with was on the second floor of the addition. It was not convenient to get to with a stroller. From the main building you take an elevator or stairs then down another hallway. The addition does not have an elevator so up another two flights of stairs to the room. The last day of our stay we discovered a door from the dining room (in the main building) that opened up directly onto our second floor. It would have been very useful to know of this passage so we could have avoided all the stairs.

      Regardless of the logistical difficulties and hot room, the hotel was very nice. It delivers an excellent full breakfast every morning. The gardens and surrounding grounds are lush and beautiful. We enjoyed walking the grounds and letting the children stretch their feet. The staff was courteous and helpful. It is within walking distance to the small downtown but make sure to take your walking shoes.

      I would recommend the Culloden, especially to guests without children. If you do take children ask for a room that is easily accessible for strollers.

      ... Catholic neighbourhoods. The protestant neighbourhoods are covered with Union Jacks (The flag of the United Kingdom). The story goes that only one Union Jack was present at the top of Belfast City Hall. But since no other Union Jack waved above any other city hall in the United Kingdom, Belfast was asked to remove it. The people responded to this request with a promise. Take away our Union Jack from our City Hall and you will find a million Jack's troughout the whole ...

      ... to go. It was about an hours drive to the north coast. We travelled on narrow country roads and it was very scenic. We had 2 hours free time at the Giants Causeway. We caught a shuttle bus 1 klm down to the shoreline, where this unusual rock formation is. There are thousands of basalt columns, each 6 sided, rising up out of the ground. The surrounding cliffs are full of them, but the ones on the shoreline have been weathered to ...

      ... is a very famous incident that occurred in extreme Northern Ireland. A group of British soldiers were peacekeeping a Republican demonstration and they ended up shooting and killing 14 unarmed civilians. This was major because it wasn't the individual political/religious groups. It was done by the British military (called the Parachute Regiment.) **(What's scary is that just last month, some Protestant homes erected their British flags for St Patricks Day, and also added the flag ...

      ... that seems to come so effortless to him.

      My friend from The Netherlands had told me before she left for home in January that she noticed in my pictures how happy I look with him. The pictures don't lie. Nick really does make me happy.. Happier than I thought was possible for someone to make to another feel.

      Nick has been my support system, my shoulder to cry on, my rock, my bestfriend. <3

      ... lady was lovely she took us to our rooms. There were stairs to climb. We settled in and then she gave us the info we needed. I showered then settled in and then slept. I didn't unpack much so packing for tomorrow should be straightforward. Thank you Lord for bringing us safely to Belfast. Thank you for protecting us on the bus, ferry and taxi. Thank you for providing us with good weather. The shower to cool our bodies and the sun to warm it up. Lord ...
