As a family ourselves we know how important it is to keep the children entertained, so here are a few activities for the kids, and big kids too.
The Jungle NI caters to children and adults of all ages with a huge range of exciting activities. Zip-lining, tree top walks, zorbing, archery, paintball, and clay pigeon shooting are just a few things you can try.
For some Formula 1 excitement, try Railway Karting in Moneymore. It has a great track and plenty of packages to choose from.
For nature lovers the World of Owls is Northern Ireland’s Premier Owl, Bird of Prey and Exotic Animal Conservation Centre situated in the picturesque Randalstown Forest.
For poetry lovers we highly recommend Seamus Heaney Homeplace: an arts and literary centre offering insight into the life and work of the local born internationally acclaimed poet. The onsite café is highly recommended and the shop is stocked with bespoke locally crafted gifts.
After a busy day we’re sure you could do with a rest, a tasty dinner and perhaps a pint of Guinness or a dram of whiskey. The Old Thatch Inn is a traditional thatched pub and restaurant between Castledawson and Toome. It was established in 1832 and offers a quintessential atmosphere to enjoy refreshment or a tasty meal.
The Crosskeys Inn is Ireland’s oldest thatched pub and a famous traditional music venue. It dates back to 1654 and is situated just off the main Randalstown to Portglenone road approximately 30 minutes from Belfast. It is a ‘not to be missed’ unique experience. You can’t escape the rich sense of history and heritage that pervades the atmosphere from the moment you step through the door. Order a pint, sit by the open fire, throw on some turf and enjoy the craic.
