Anybody been? I'm going in '16. The Crum, black taxi tour, and the Titanic museum are already on the itinerary. Recommendations from experienced posters would be appreciated, as well as any links you know of.

PS, I'll be driving myself around Ireland.

Haven't been there for a while. Things have changed a bit but don't think its safe for you to go to the Shankill Road or other Loyalist areas unless its part of a tour.

I have to run now and will likely be offline for a week but will come back with some suggestions.

Sadly not.

I wouldn't mind giving them a history lesson though that the contemporary Pope supported King Billy and a Te Deum Mass was celebrated in the Vatican after news of the Battle of the Boyne came through.

The Presbyterian Apprentice Boys of Derry shut the City gates in the face of King James army and suffered 105 day siege in defence of their Civil & Political Liberties. They then lost both under the Anglican Rule of King Billy.
