I am noticing on these forums that most travelers (myself included) seem to be doing more traveling in the Republic of Ireland as opposed to Northern Ireland. I desperately want to see the north, but time simply does not permit it during this trip. For you Ireland natives, I am just curious to know your thoughts on this. Are there just fewer attractions in the north? From the pics I've seen online, there are so many beautiful places (Antrim is absolutely gorgeous). I actually have a huge canvas print of The Dark Hedges above my fireplace.
So is there less tourism in the North? If so, why?
