My recent work trip to Ireland which I thought was going to be all about getting some work done, meeting new colleagues, apartment hunting etc(If you have been following me on instagram, then you know I am moving to Ireland pretty soon!), was on the contrary what felt like a dream comprising of castles, cliffs, coastline, traditional villages, tap dance, Irish music and much more! People said there was nothing much to do in Ireland and a day should be enough to explore all of it. I beg to differ, a long weekend didn't seem enough to do everything that I wanted to and a day wasn't enough to drive everywhere I wished to, not that tiny after all! It was a dream come true to walk along the locations that felt like they were straight out of victorian era movies.
Northern Ireland is a part of UK and you require a UK visa. However, thanks to the British-Irish visa scheme, Chinese and Indian passport holders traveling on a short stay visa (business or tourist visa) can travel between UK and Ireland with either UK or Irish visa as many times within your stay without requiring to apply for another visa. Let me take you to a long weekend in NI and few other gems nearby. This tiny part of the country is more than just stunning, it is a dream come true and here's why!
A driving adventure across the border.
