Known as the region’s arts and culture centre, Lisburn is one of Ireland’s lesser known gems. It’s nestled in the Lagan Valley, just 6 miles from the stunning Lagan Valley Regional Park, and is less than 20 miles from Ireland’s rugged coast.
Lisburn is a perfect base for anyone looking to explore Ireland’s unique natural beauty. While you can travel around the immediate proximity by foot, bike and bus, renting a car is the best way to really make the most of what’s on offer and to explore further afield.
You can arrange your car rental through Expedia and collect it from Belfast International Airport either when you land or at a later date. From here, explore the causeway coast route that takes you around the Northeast peninsula of the island. You may even want to go as far as Londonderry to explore the historic, walled city that sits on the bank of the River Foyle.
A car rental will give you full freedom to explore outside of Lisburn and a chance to discover Ireland’s smaller towns, which offer a great insight into a traditionally Irish way of life. Travelling by car is also ideal if you have children.
Ireland is a deeply romantic country with brooding skies and dramatic scenery. Exploring by car will ensure you fully experience all that Lisburn, and its surrounding areas, has to offer.
