Bangor is situated on the southern shore of Belfast Lough, a big inlet on Ireland's northeast coast with Belfast city at its head. Bangor is a popular Edwardian seaside resort featuring a small harbour serving as headquarters of Royal Ulster Yacht Club. About 555, a monastery was founded at Bangor by Saint Comgall, and became a renowned learning centre. In the 9th century the Danes destroyed the town but it was partially rebuilt by Saint Malachy in the 12th century. Part of his stone church still remains.
Passengers can take an excursion from Bangor to visit Mount Stewart House, gardens and home of Marquis of Londonderry family (today managed by National Trust), with the famous sunken gardens and lavish interiors, plus paintings by the artist Stubbs. Remember to visit Giant's Causeway, formed more than 60 million years ago by volcanic activity and currently a UNESCO world heritage site.
