Belfast remained a small settlement of little importance during the Middle ages.

Ice Hockey

Ice Hockey one of the world’s fastest games probably on a par with Hurling.

Until the mid-1980s it was generally accepted that ice hockey derived from English field hockey and Indian lacrosse. Research turned up mention of a hockey like game played in the early 1800s in Nova Scotia by the Mik’mac Indians.

This appeared to have been heavily influenced by the Irish game of hurling.  It included the use of a “hurley” (stick) and a square wooden block instead of a ball.

Today’s modern game is fast and slick and Belfast people love their ice hockey, so why don’t you join them.

Bushmills Distillery

In the small village of Bushmills, settled on the banks of the river you’ll find the oldest working distillery in Ireland.

A place where family and friends have worked for generations, in a small Northern Irish village that for over 400 years has kept to the philosophy that hand crafting small batches is the way to produce beautifully smooth tasting Irish whiskey.

Experience a guided tour around the distillery and listen to how this famous Irish Whiskey is made from the very beginning to the bottling stage.

There’s also the opportunity to purchase some of its products.
