Northern Ireland Sports & Outdoors

  • Ice Hockey

    Belfast Sports & Outdoors

    Ice Hockey - With Belfast team - The Belfast Giants (mainly made up of Canadian Players) Just bring a loud cheering voice, and if you want to join in with the cheerleaders "The G Crew" why not bring your own Pom Poms. You can buy Game Shirts, hats & Bits at the venue, also refreshments. Also Cafes & Places to Eat are in the next door Odyssey...

  • Hiking Cave Hill - Napolean's Nose!

    If you have a few hours to kill and are looking for some moderate exercise and a great view over Belfast, climb cave hill up to Napolean's Nose! The cavehill overlooks North Belfast. Its most dominant crag was nick-named Napoleon’s Nose, and was thought to have been the inspiration for Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels. All of Belfast can be seen...

  • Golf on the North Coast

    Had the opportunity to golf in Ballycastle! They are very short on rental clubs so when you call ahead for tee times make sure you ask about rental clubs. Left handed clubs are even harder to get a hold of. The course is beautiful and the price was amazing! Coming from Ontario Canada there is a lot of reasonably price golf but doing by the sea is...

  • Motor cruising to the republic

    I havn't done it myself, but in 1994 the links between North and south by naviagable inland waterways was resestablished.The route begins in lower Loch Erne in the north and passing through Enniskillen and on through the Republic towards Limerick takes just over 50 hours of cruising.If you want to see both the North and the South from this...

  • Links to die for

    Northern Ireland is blessed with many excellent Golf courses.Of special note is Royal Portrush. Although it has hosted British opens in the past, and regularly turns up in list of the top 20 or top 10 golf courses in the world, is probably not quite as well known as courses like Turnberry, Gleneagles, St Andrew or Muirfield.If you are a player then...

  • Australia vs. Romania - October 3, 1999

    During the Rugby World Cup, we travelled into Northen Ireland for most of the day for the ability to watch the match between Australia and Romania. Although it was a little mismatched with the final being 57-9, I really enjoyed watching this match because of how close the fans got to be with the match!

  • Hiking through Banagher Glen.....

    A walk through Banagher Glen Nature Reserve (near Dungiven) is relatively easy and interesting. Banagher Glen is the host of an annual biodiversity walk and is one of the only places where ancient woodlands still exist. Our walk started quite normally with beautiful scenery and sounds. What we didn't know is that further down the path our route was...

  • Climbing the Mourne Mountains!!

    The Mourne Moutain range is one of the most picturesque ranges in the UK. I had the pleasure of climbing Sleive Commedagh, the second highest mountain in the range. It only took around 4-6 hours. Having good hiking shoes, several layers of clothing, extra food, and someone who knows the mountains is essential. The conditions can change very fast...

  • Downhill Mountain biking in Tullymore...

    Located just outside of Newcastle and only an hour from Belfast, Tullymore forest was a great getaway from the city and gave me a chance to try some downhill mountain biking and camping. There are a few great places to ride for every skill level. I tried an intermediate run and it provided plenty of danger and excitement. I'll write another article...
