As a destination I think Northern Ireland has so much to offer. It really is a little region with so many stories to tell. [MUSIC] I was born and raised in Belfast. I've lived here all my life. Belfast is the home of Titanic. She was built here over the course of three years and unfortunately my great-grandfather Tomi was one of the casualties of that disaster. So when I'm telling the story of Titanic here in its birthplace, I'm able to really boil it down into one family. These experiences. Titanic Belfast was opened in 2012 to tell the story of Titanic from the city's point of view. It's a visitor attraction, which draws you into the Titanic story using lots of technology. Belfast is a Victorian city, so it's got a lot of fabulous architecture from that era, but as well as that You've got this rejuvenation. You've got this energy of reinvention. Really, I suppose the place to be is Cathedral Quarter. It's little windy streets, beautiful flower baskets on the wall, and a real atmosphere of old Belfast within that. Belfast is the regional capital, but sitting on its doorstep is the rest of Northern Island. The coastal route between Belfast and the Causeway coast. A row of belts in the Victorian era which hugs the coastline of [UNKNOWN] stretches for about 120 miles. It's just stunning. It's just absolutely beautiful. The main attraction on the Causeway Coast is obviously the Giant's Causeway itself. It's a UNESCO World Heritage site and a unique geological feature. Another thing you must do when you visit the Causeway Coast is to cross Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and course Bushmills distillery which started in 1608. Is the oldest whiskey distillery in the world. From top to bottom of Northern Ireland, it's about two hours driving time, so it's really pretty easy to get around. So no matter who you are or where your coming from, there's a good chance you'll find what you're looking for, something special here in Northern Ireland.
