We will be over to enjoy the New Year in Belfast with friends and family. We are spending the Xmas and New Year period in London and Belfast, then heading off to do a 2-3 week tour of Europe. Our intention is to start our tour in Bruges, although Amsterdam could be an option as well (we originally planned to start Bruges, then Amsterdam and on to Germany). I have been searching different flight options, around Jan 3rd (optional) and all the flights I can find to Brussels, are via London. Does anyone know of any other options in reaching Bruges or as an alternative, Amsterdam?
Just one other question. We will arrive in Belfast around Dec 27th and will have a car available to us in Ballynahinch. We also have the option of a friends holiday shack in Bushmills. We are keen to cruise around for 2-3 days and wondered if anyone had any good options that could take us on a loop...possibly starting in Belfast, working down into the south and then heading back up to either Belfast or Bushmills-Giants Causeway areas over 3 days?
