Tips needed for trip to the North

At last it looks like we can set off for our Ireland trip.
We usually end up in Kerry but are trying not to this year.
We have been to Co. Down but nowhere else up norf so really looking forward to it.
We will definitely do Giants Causeway and the glens.
We are not too bothered about going all the way round the coast as we get plenty of that at home.
Any tips on must do's?......
We like, nice views, heritage and archaeology stuff, and are very keen on traditional Irish music.
Any ideas gratefully received!

Also like the idea of coming back from west to east along the border counties...any suggestions there also gratefully received...

For the giant's cause way, park in Bushmills distillery and use the park and ride bus. While the causeway is free, the parking isn't and a mh would be billed as a bus rate.
Also if using the campsite in bushmill ( Ballyness, I think ) prior booking would be advisable.
From Bushmills to Derry is a beautiful drive with a few stops on the app.
In cavan town there is an inter active display of world war one including a rebuilt trench warfare.
Discover Ireland and discover ni would be the main tourism websites.

Whitespots Country Park and Somme Museum on the App.

Have you been to Cultra transport museum?

If your van would fit into a normal parking bay I would park it in the car park at Corporation Square. It is about a 15-20 minute easy walk to the Titanic Museum. On the way you would pass the Titanic Boat Tours at the bottom of the Obel building , the shop selling Titanic stuff and the Big Blue fish. Get a photo of yourself kissing the big fish. There is a footbridge there that crosses the river
