Booked an open top tour bus, [went to] Giant's Causeway and Crumlin jail, all very worth the money... My kids liked Giant's Causeway, climbing all the rocks and the open top tour bus as we saw the whole of Belfast with a very knowledgeable tour guide.

Titanic exhibition is a must, take care with hop on hop off buses – two companies operate with different routes (we used both, excellent tours and good live commentaries)... Great to see the city at peace with itself, interesting tours of sectarian areas and murals, Belfast Castle, City Hall, Stormont etc. – all worth doing... The weather was surprisingly good for late October!

The weather was great, the food was aplenty. Went and watched Glasgow Rangers Football match. My kids liked the shopping trip to Hamleys toy store and going to watch their favourite football team Glasgow Rangers. Saw many beautiful sights and my wife enjoyed the many massive stores. I liked the bars and the many different takeaways. Chilling in the hotel bar was great and watching my team Glasgow Rangers at Ibrox.

A bit cold, but less crowded. The beach was great fun for the kid. Definitely will come back again sometime later. My kid liked the beach and the sand! Relax by the beach or cycle along the coastline. I liked the walk on the beach.
