Northern Ireland: Wild history and wild stories

Ireland is a really exciting travel country with a really exciting history. And for most of history, Ireland has been a united island with a common people. In fact, it is what we know today as Northern Ireland only 100 years old.

The last 100 years in Ireland have been very eventful and there are some clear differences between the south and the north. But there are also many similarities. The special Irish culture and atmosphere are present on both sides of the otherwise invisible border and it makes really good sense to visit both countries on the trip to Ireland.

In Ireland, they really like to tell stories, and you should probably not always count on them being 100% historically correct - it's less important. The stories help to create a strong narrative about Ireland and the proud - and self-ironic - Irish people both before and after the division of the island.

If you start your journey in Dublin, then it's easy to go to Northern Ireland too. Belfast is only 2 hours to the north and there are plenty of boats buses and trains between the two capitals. Of course, you can also easily drive yourself, if travel around Ireland by car.

About the travel writer

Jens Skovgaard Andersen, editor

Jens is a happy travel nerd who has traveled in over 60 countries from Kyrgyzstan and China to Australia and Albania. Jens is educated in China Studies, has lived in China for 1½ years and is a member of the Travel Club. He has extensive experience with the travel world as a tour guide, lecturer, advisor, author and photographer. And of course most important of all: As a traveler. Jens often goes to places where it is also possible to watch a good football match in the company of other incarnated fans and has a special fondness for Boldklubben FREM, where he sits on the board. For most people it is obvious to look up to Jens (he is barely two meters tall), and then he is a 14-time champion in the TV quiz Jeopardy and still single, so if you can not find him out in the world or on a football stadium, you can probably find him out touring in the Copenhagen quiz environment.
