Castles and grand homes open doors to the past
Northern Ireland has a tremendous historical heritage, ranging from castles to ancestral homes of those who made their mark around the world as well as modern cultural activities such as the burgeoning film industry. This weekend, thanks to the innovative European Heritage Open Days, we can get a glimpse of the past and present.
There is much to see and it is free. So what better incentive to get out in the promised sunshine and see how lives were lived in the past or how modern blockbusters are created?
It is a packed programme of events with something to suit everyone's taste – and we should all take advantage of it.
