Dreamy salted caramel brownies. Expertly brewed coffees.  Multiple sockets for working on your laptop. There are multiple reasons why I love going to Ground Espresso Bars.

Silent Testimony

When attending the talk for Space Week by astronaut Greg H Johnson, it was the perfect opportunity to visit the widely praised exhibition, Silent Testimony. All exhibits are portraits of those affected by Northern Ireland’s ‘Troubles’. Artist Colin Davidson is one of Northern Ireland’s best-known artists. His celebrity portraits are very popular and he is even credited for teaching Brad Pitt how to paint.

The spookiest places in Northern Ireland

I am not a fan of Hallowe’en – the most excited I get is when I go to the Monster Mash in Titanic Quarter, Belfast for the fireworks. Saying that, it is always fun to get a little creeped out. When browsing the internet earlier, I came across an infographic by Blue Chip Holidays listing the most ‘spooktacular’  places to visit in the UK. I was disappointed to see that Northern Ireland had been bypassed completely. This got me thinking, and I came up with a list of spooky places in my home country.
