Driving around in Northern Ireland

It's always easier to travel around if you can drive. This time our road trip began at Coleraine where it's about 1.5 hours away from Belfast by train. Obviously I am just a professional passenger, and yes, it's also easier to travel around if your friends can drive for you... LOL

Our first stop was Dunluce Castle, where we followed the coastline and stopped at some points for pictures. The view was spectacular! (I mean the view by the coastline, not sure about the Dunluce Castle though...) I was actually quite disappointed about the castle because it didn't look like any pictures on the Internet... perhaps I expected too much.

Our second stop was the famous Giant's Causeway. The stones were very unique and it's very interesting of how these stones were made by nature. If you fancy walking down there for around 20 minutes, it's totally free; or you could take a bus for just £1 per trip. Don't be fooled by my pictures... the weather was terrible that day. It was raining, sometimes even pouring for the whole day, and yes, even in front of me was a pretty scene with a blue sky. It was super windy which I couldn't even stay still and firmly.

Our final stop was The Dark Hedges. This could be my favourite spots in Northern Ireland now. Some of my friends told me that this place looks spooky, however I found it very magical. It was a very unique experience to walk under this mysterious tree tunnel. I suppose The Dark Hedges became well-known since this was one of the location where the Game of Thrones was filmed. I can't tell you if this looks like the movie or not but if you've seen it, let me know!

Now I'm more curious about how this tree tunnel would look like in different seasons?
