A balmy bank holiday weekend is in store for Northern Ireland with the blissful sunshine set to continue.
Wednesday was the warmest day of the year and Botanic Gardens in Belfast served as the perfect suntrap for crowds to enjoy ice cream on the grass.
Elsewhere, on Benone Strand dog walkers took the chance to let their parched pooches take a cooling dip.
Today, the Met Office has forecast long spells of warm sunshine and top temperatures of 22C.
