A Day Out In Portrush
The Silent Valley
The Silent valley is about 15 miles outside Newcastle County Down. It is like it says in the name a very quiet place. It is a reservoir surrounded by mountains I discovered by accident in my early 20s when a friend suggested that we go there. If you haven’t been to the silent valley it is definitely a place to put on your to visit list.
A Visit To Tollymore Forest
Tollymore Forest Park is situated in Newcastle County Down. It is an outstanding place with lots of beautiful scenery and walks. Since Newcastle has also got so many other things to offer including the Mourne mountains I highly recommend a visit.

Visit The Odyssey Arena In Belfast
Why not go for a visit to the Odyssey Arena in Belfast situated right beside the Titanic quarter and Harland And Wolff where the Titanic was built. There are lots of restaurants the W5 Science Centre, Ten Pin Bowling,Coffee Shops and a Cinema. There are also concerts held in the Arena regularly so it may be worth checking the ticket office to see if there is any concerts on when you are there.
A Visit To Frankie And Bennys Restaurant
Frankie And Bennys has something of an atmosphere that I really enjoy it is based on a New York theme Italian Restaurant, My experience with all the things I have ordered has been really good. It can be a bit more expensive than other restaurants but well worth a visit for a night out or a treat.
Murlough Nature Reserve
An ideal place for a walk with your family or to take your dog. Only problem is that you can’t guarantee that your dog won’t take a swim across the lough after the swans. This happened to me one day as I watched my Dobermann swim off into the sunset only to arrive back a long time later.
Trip to Ulster Folk and Transport Museum in Cultra
A visit to Botanic Gardens in Belfast
