It's February 2018 and I'm looking out the window at the winter sunshine and frost on the rolling hills around my farm here in County Armagh. I'm planning to wrap up warm and take a walk out and check out what is happening in the countryside now that as my mother used to say "the days are on the turn". Snowdrops have appeared and daffodils are not far behind. The heather is also on its way into colour.
Are you visiting Ireland this year? Are you planning to visit the North of the Island? Do you want to see the vast rural countryside rarely mentioned in promotional materials? Meet the locals in their village shops and enjoy a chat at a local farmer's mart? Maybe you simply just want a drive into the countryside to enjoy the landscape, step inside a traditional local pub and taste the traditional food of Northern Ireland - potatoes, vegetables and meat, all washed down with a glass of local cider or beer and of course there's soda bread?
You know in your heart of hearts just what you want to see when you visit this rural island of Ireland. Don't be put off with the thoughts of how to travel into the countryside we can arrange that all for you. We may even get you a job on the farm!
