... when he told us to get out of the car and walk by a sniper.... Not understanding what he said, we said our prayers and hoped for the best. Turns out it was just a mural... Hearing about true experiences and seeing the sites impacted the way I viewed Northern Ireland and the way Christians treated each other. Short version of what I learned today: some people wanted to be united with Ireland and others wanted to stay apart of ...

Public clocks do not work in Belfast

... through a city to see much more than a quick drive by car. Took a couple of pictures and then returned the same way , almost , went behind City Hall to walk along a shopping promenade. A Saturday so at least the area had some people, since Sunday stores are closed. Ontario should reconsider that. Wanted to avoid a demonstration in front of City Hall , people with Union Jacks(do not see many any more in ...

... on the city of Belfast and the time leading up to and during the building of the Titanic. Like any museum you're dealing with other tourists wandering in front of you, lingering in front of things you want to read, etc so I had to pick and choose what I was reading.

After going through the open discovery area you move into a replica area of the building shipyard and then a ride that gives you some background history on what happened in each ...

The Titanic Experience

... more rooms to it then the Taj Mahal! Met a lot of friendly and helpful people today. Some can be hard to understand, especially when the talk quickly, don't pronounce their"th"'s and it comes out as "tree". "Tree tirty" is 3:30. Missed the 6 pm train. Took the last train at 8 pm. Home at 1130 pm. Long day but well worth ...

    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.
