... then continued on our way through Larne and Belfast. Belfast was peak hour traffic so we didn't stop. Went through the Northern Ireland town of Bangor which is the town the song was probably written about. It is a party town but we kept going looking for a quiet seaside town with a local pub. None to be found! We crossed to south of the peninsular on a ferry and continued till I found a B&B sign in the country down a lane way. Lovely older couple who ...

Visiting Belfast

Today we did the Belfast Zoo and Cave Hill. The zoo was really neat, it was on the base of Cave Hill and by the time we got to the end of the zoo we were about half way up one side of the mountain.

A travel blog entry by mnambassadors

... br> Next we had tea with the Lord Mayor of Belfast, another Nationalist in the Sinn Fein party. We met him at the beautiful city hall. He is a bit controversial because he moved pictures of the royal family and replaced them with the 1916 Irish Declaration of Independence. I've been reading a lot about this in the papers, and he has really been getting slammed for this decision, but after he actually explained his rational for it, I really ...
