They take up less of your hard-earned cash and precious leave time than a longer holiday, while leaving you feeling as refreshed and energized as a lengthier break would.

And if it feels like ages since you’ve had the opportunity to spend some time alone with your partner, now could be your chance! Explore Belfast together and enjoy some quality time in each other’s company. (more…)
