Northern Ireland tour stops (including Belfast)

On our vacation to the Republic of Ireland, we took a day tour to Northern Ireland (part of the United Kingdom); the tour had two major stops, Carrick-a-Rede island and the Giant's Causeway, which I previously posted photos of. The photos in this post are from some of the smaller stops the tour made, including an hour in Belfast's Donegall Square.

Ruins of Dunseverick Castle.

Our lunch spot had a couple ponies next to the restaurant.

This one is such a rock star.

Ruins of Dunluce Castle.

This is the Mary McAleese Boyne Valley Bridge. It is the longest cable-stayed bridge in Northern Ireland; this area of the river is environmentally sensitive, so, the bridge was built with no support columns in the water.

The rest of the images are from our stop in Belfast. The stop was only an hour, so, we did not have time to explore further than Donegall Square.
