Definately wonderful photos and I'd really love to visit Northern Ireland... but... I also looove the sun. Unfortunately the sun doesn't seem to love Northern Ireland, so I haven't been yet. But maybe I'll just have to try. :)

We didn't have any bad weather in Northern Ireland Yvonne! Ok, perhaps no beach weather (although I like beaches windy to walk on, not really a sunbather), but definitely not as bad as I thought it would be! Hope you get to visit to try for yourself :D
