The Eastern Counties of Northern Ireland

County Down and South Belfast

Tuesday 2nd - Friday 5th July 2019

Organisers: Hugh Dixon and Ian Wells

This will be our second trip to Northern Ireland. Back in 2010 we visited the western counties. This time we will travel to the counties of Antrim and Down. We will be staying in an award-winning, converted linen mill in the countryside near Downpatrick. Buildings to be visited in this 'Pale beyond the Pale' range from the Anglo-Norman castles and towers, mansions and churches, to buildings of the Queen's University of Belfast with Ireland's most modern library.

Hugh spent many years in Northern Ireland as an Architectural Historian, is author of An Introduction to Ulster Architecture and is a member of the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society. We can rely on him to develop a fascinating itinerary.
