About

☘ Northern Ireland: Must sees & Itineraries

Welcome to my KickStarter campaign! I have been working on this project for 2 years, a book entirely dedicated to Northern Ireland. It has already been published in French and due to its success, it started generating demand for an English publication. I could not think of a better way to get the English edition out there!  

The book is half-way between a travel diary and a tourist guide, filled with over 80 must sees across the 6 counties and Belfast. It includes over 150 photographs, itineraries that take you around Belfast and its surroundings, itineraries for hikes and road trips, practical information, as well as beautiful illustrations made by a local artist. 

☘ Who am I and why this project? 

My name is Violaine, I am a French expatriate and I have been living in Northern Ireland for the past 5 years. I was based in Belfast until recently, and I work as a freelancer in the digital and tourism marketing industry. In my spare time, I am also a travel blogger. I am passionate about travelling and during my time in Northern Ireland, I took every opportunity I got to discover this beautiful country. From North to South, East to West, I went in search of all the stunning places Northern Ireland has, places that deserved to be talked about and discovered. 

I completely fell in love with the country, and while blogging about it for 5 years, I decided to take all of this content and turn it into a book that could be useful for people who want to discover this amazing place.

It took me 2 years to finish this book, and I am very happy with the result. The book has been very well received in the French market, and I hope it can be as successful in the English speaking market. 

☘ What’s in the book? 

Rather than focusing on the usual top 10's you’ll find in every tourist guide and which you probably already know about, I wanted to dedicate this book to all the beautiful hidden places we never hear about. They are the places that contribute in equal measure to what makes Northern Ireland an amazing place to discover. 

In this book, you’ll find 82 must sees across the 6 counties of Northern Ireland: Antrim, Derry, Tyrone, Fermanagh, Armagh and Down, plus a dedicated chapter for Belfast for those who are looking for a city-break in Northern Ireland! A lot of these must sees are known mostly to locals, which makes this a real and genuine experience. 

You’ll also find road-trip itineraries, hiking ideas, urban itineraries, things to experience, over 150 photographs, beautiful illustrations made by the local artist Ayeen Sarah Lee, and interviews of local entrepreneurs! There is also a practical guide at the end of the book with lots of tips and hints to make this the best possible experience for you. The beautiful book layout was made by Corinne Stoppelli, a professional graphic designer. 

If you’re planning a trip to Northern Ireland or simply want to know more about this beautiful country, then this book is perfect for you!

☘ What’s the book like ? 

It’s an A5 format (14,8 x 21 cm), 296 pages. The book is printed on a recycled mat paper 100gsm inside and the cover is a 250gsm paper with a mat and soft touch finish. Let me show you:

Our partner in this campaign

Thanks to the success of the French edition,  NI Coffee Maps offered to partner up again for the English edition. Each backer contributing with €22 or more will receive a beautiful NI Coffee Map dedicated either to Belfast or the Causeway Coast (randomly shipped out). It is the perfect pocket map to discover the best coffee shops in Northern Ireland. I tried many of them and believe me, you won't be disappointed! This is an essential for any coffee lover visiting Northern Ireland.

Risks and challenges

As the book has already been published in French, the costs for this campaign are not as high as for my campaign on the French market. However, if the campaign doesn't reach its target, I will unfortunately not be able to afford the costs for printing this book in English.

Regarding the deadlines, I will translate the book myself but it will then be proof-red by a professional and native speaker. I am hoping to finish this project in the few months coming that you can receive your orders by the end of July this year. I will keep you posted of the progress of the project on this page until July that you know when to expect your order.
