Hi Joel

The Mourne mountains are stunning, especially gorgeous in winter.  And I guess you'll have to take a trip to the Giant's Causeway  and you can drop into Bushmills.  There's a nice set of caverns near the border, which you can take a boat trip through.  Unfortunately I can't remember what they're called, although I can find out if you're interested.  And of course there's lots of interesting stone circles etc to have a look at (http://www.themodernantiquarian.com/home/ is your friend for such matters).

My wife would go mad at me suggesting this, but most people I know that have visited the North have gone to see some of the political murals.

Not going to suggest anywhere to eat, most of the places I've eaten have been in the North , and maybe I'm overly blasé about this, but none of them really stand out.  However I did have a lovely time eating the excellent sandwiches and drinking some very nice cocktails in the lounge of the Four Seasons in Dublin.

How far are you willing to travel from Ireland?

So, although we're planning on spending lots of time lazing in front of a fire (our own, or the one down the pub) we'd hate to come home and realize we'd missed some 'once-in-a-lifetime' opportunity.

Looking for any ideas, from trivial to tremendous, and it doesn't necessarily have to be in Ireland; we're considering some travel while we're over.

Oh; we can consider "eating/drinking at every possible opportunity" to be on the list in general, but if there's a place or taste that just shouldn't be missed, we'd love to hear about it. My Best Beloved is as adventurous about drink and food as I am. Rachelle will probably try every possible kind of bread while we're there, and not much else, but that's nothing new ;) I guess when you're 17 and weight 95 pounds, you might as well enjoy it while you can.

Thanks ever so much
