PERFECT CORNER OF EUROPE

Keen to try out one of the new Ryanair routes from Belfast, MICHAEL BEATTIE headed to the beautiful Province of Bergamo, Northern Italy via the new Belfast International-Milan route…

I think I may just have found the perfect corner of Europe. Imagine a beautiful blue lake surrounded by steep mountains and along its narrow coastal road, picturesque towns and villages every few kilometres.

The roads into the hills twist and turn through more pretty and sometimes ancient little towns.

Those hills are perfect for rigorous walks and stunning vistas. When the snow comes they're ideal for skiing.

The local food is prepared with great attention and pride, the local cheeses a particular delight whether savoured on the farm where they were made or in the fine-dining restaurants in the city.

And all of this is just a two and half hour flight from Belfast International Airport.

STILL PLEASING THE MOST PERNICKETY

BRIAN McCALDEN takes a short break in the famed McGrory’s Hotel in Culdaff, County Donegal…

BACK in the mid-1960s, heavily industrialised Belfast was busy, smoky, polluted and noisy, with green spaces limited mainly to the more affluent suburban areas.

It was no wonder then that the (much) younger me took to the McGrenahans’ isolated farmhouse like a duck to water.

Cattle grazed nearby, the family’s sheep were frequently hassled by the farm collie - when off duty from his professional role – herding them for the farmer.

IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE FAMOUS…

Isn't it wonderful when you come across a hotel with a truly fascinating story behind it? You can almost feel the life of those years gone by pulsing in its very walls. Llangoed Hall, in South Wales, is one of those hotels. Recent guest ANDREA McVEIGH tells us more…

Just nine miles away from Hay-on-Wye and its annual Hay Festival, numerous famous festival guests have stayed in this magnificent stately pile, including Jane Fonda, Sting and Bill Clinton.

The building itself, set in magnificent private grounds, is positively steeped in a rich history dating back to 560 AD, when the original Llangoed Castle was first recorded on the site. Subsequently used as a monastery, it was also home to the White Palace, Wales’s first parliament building. Rebuilt in 1632 by Sir Henry Williams in the classic Jacobean Manor House style, the family lost it as part of a gambling debt and it then became part of the estate of Lord Glanusk.
