Peace and prosperity have brought new vitality to Northern Ireland, with Belfast leading the parade with brilliant new attractions, good restaurants and a flourishing arts scene.

Rapid regeneration and a host of new cultural, historical and scientific attractions make Northern Ireland an exciting destination. We explored the main tourist attractions in the south of this country.

We rented a car in Dublin and with all the ease in the world on the roads, we went to Northern Ireland. It's just over 80 km and you're already over the border.

Newry is a great place to visit. It is a town in County Down and County Armagh in Northern Ireland. It is considered one of the oldest cities in Northern Ireland.

Exploring the City

One of the best things to do in the city is explore it. Newry has been a place of human habitation that can be dated back to 4,000 BC. It's no surprise that Newry has a colorful and rich heritage. The city features a combination of modern and ancient structures. The famous elegant Georgian houses and courthouse are among the ancient structures. You can find out a lot about Newry's history by exploring the town.

Visit the castles

Another thing to do in Newry is see Bagenal Castle. It was discovered in 1996 and underwent a surprising restoration process. In the castle there is a fortified tower from the 16th century and a warehouse from the 19th century. You should definitely visit this castle as it is a museum.

Another castle you should see is Castle Ward. It was used for the shooting of the famous television drama Game of Thrones. In the series, the historic courtyard of Castle Ward is the location of Winterfell, a stronghold of House Stark. You can experience a little Game of Thrones through the ClearSky Castle adventure. If you are a Game of Thrones fan, you should definitely visit this Castle. It's an experience of a lifetime that you can share for years to come with your friends and family. You can dress up as any character and go to the film set. What could be better for adherents of the past than to stand where Jon Snow once stood?


There are many cathedrals in the city of Newry. Newry's churches and cathedrals are an integral part of the history. One of the must-see churches is St. Patrick's Church. This was the home of Saint Patrick, where the Boss walked and spread his teachings. The areas offer a broad view of nearby places. The Church was built in 1578 and is one of the first Protestant churches in Ireland. There's a delicious pizzeria that we ate at close to this cathedral, and the price is excellent, 10 pounds for a pizza that's enough for two.

Next, you should visit the Cathedral of St. Patrick and St. Colman. This is one of the main places of Catholic worship in the city. This is famous for its vibrant stained glass windows and incredible interior marble work. It was opened in 1829 and, since then, it has been one of the most visited places.
