A travel blog entry by mickandcarol


We had a slight change in plans deciding not to stay in Belfast instead having a look around then heading back to Dublin for two nights after agreeing it would be the better option. And it was once again our tour guide was spot on after a short drive from Drogheda we parked the car in search of our black cab We heard that this was the best way to get the feel for Belfast and see the sights Nick asked a local fella where was the closest taxi rank after explaining it to him he then ...
