Ulster is Ireland's most northerly province. Under the Government of Ireland Act 1920 Ireland was broken into two sepeate territories, Southern Ireland and Northern Ireland. Ulster is made up of 9 counties, Antrim, Armagh, Down, Derry, Fermanaghand Tyrone all belonging to The United Kingdom and Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan all belonging to The Republic of Ireland.
Northern Ireland has put it's political past behind it and is now looking towards a bright future. Belfast City, stradling County Down and County Antrim, has become a hotspot in recent years for people looking for both a city break and a cultural tour. Attractions such as The Giants Causeway on the northern coastline of County Antrim and multiple shooting locations from the hugely popular Television series Game of Thrones has meant that recently Ulster has become one of Ireland's most sought after tour locations.
