Queen’s students have an array of cultural, sporting and social opportunities not just on their Belfast doorstep, but also elsewhere in Northern Ireland. Food connoisseurs, avid explorers and history lovers all find something in this stunning country to indulge their particular desire.
Its spectacular scenery, including the Giant’s Causeway – a World Heritage site – its thriving cultural life, and the friendliness and hospitality of its people are just some of the attractions Northern Ireland is famous for.
Within minutes of Queen’s campus you can be in the countryside, up a mountain, fishing in a river, plunging into Atlantic surf, travelling through mystical glens, exploring ancient lakeland islands, visiting historic castles and enjoying lunch in a village pub or a gourmet meal in a Michelin-starred restaurant.
Northern Ireland offers a high standard of modern living, while its size creates a warm community atmosphere. It is, as one local author suggests, “a great country, pretending to be small”.
