Time for Two
They say a change is as good as a rest and if you’ve been working hard all year and barely remember what your other half looks like then it’s time to grab them by the hand and escape the rat race. Even if it’s only for a long weekend, go somewhere you’ve never been before and reawaken your sense of fun and adventure together. Rekindle those flames by experiencing somewhere new and thrilling.
Northern Ireland is the perfect place for a couples getaway as it’s not too far and is possibly a new destination that you hadn’t considered. Windswept, rugged beauty to romantic meals in the heart of a thriving city, it’s got it all. For a Luxury B&B Northern Ireland, visit www.ashbrook-house.co.uk. Here we will take a look at some of the more quirky things to do for couples on a rejuvenating break in the capital.
To get the blood pumping, how about a 90m zip wire at the adventure complex in Colin Glen Forest? There are climbing walls and rope courses and this activity will be sure to blow off the cobwebs!
If you feel like livening things up in a bit after dark then a visit to the Cabaret Supper Club should tickle your fancy. A wide variety of entertainment is on offer including burlesque, contortionists and magicians in a red velvet club that will make you feel like your in 1920’s Hollywood.
For a tour with a twist, visit the dockyards where the world famous Titanic was built on a Segway. It sounds crazy but who says history has to be experienced whilst walking? Now you can visit the past whilst whizzing around on two wheels.
If you like a challenge then try the Escape3D experience in which you are locked in a room and must solve the clues to free yourself. If you’re successful, you win your entry fee back. Alternatively, leave the other half here while you escape for a pint of Guinness or for some retail therapy!
If all this sounds a little manic for a long weekend and what you really desire is some relaxing ‘couple time’ then do not fear because there is something for everyone in this great island. The couples Full Moon Sea Safari sounds incredibly romantic. Watch the moon rise over the tranquil Strangford Lough as your skipper tells you all the local folklore.
Enjoy a warm and cosy glamping experience in areas of outstanding natural beauty. Gaze at the stars overhead while you toast marshmallows together before snuggling up in the eco-friendly glamping pod. Are you both Game of Thrones fans? If so, then you’ll love the Games of Thrones cycle tour. The self-guided tour follows the shoreline and takes in many of the filming locations for this series.
If you’re looking for a bit of exercise and romance then the romantic kayaking for two is also an option. On your very own pedal kayak you can discover empty islands, hidden bays and abandoned castles around Lough Erne before heading to your very own secluded spot for a luxury picnic.
