Hi all,

We are off to the Northern Half of Ireland over Easter and I would apreciate any advice on sites, places to go & things to do.

Plan is to get the ferry to Dublin then hightail it straight up North, camp up near Belfast for a day or so, taking the bus into the City, and then spend the next 2 weeks slowly making our way around the coast to about Sligo, before heading back via Dublin.

We plan on seeing Belfast, Giants Causeway and stopping in a few forests on the way

We prefer small CL's/wild camping to big sites and we like walking, hill-climbing, cycling & fishing (Sea & Course..)

Any advice on sites to stay on, things to see and things to avoid, would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
