Belfast is a remarkable city. The landmarks of the city’s history, like City Hall and Crumlin Road Gaol, are an important part of Belfast’s story, but heritage is only one side of this vibrant and diverse destination. There are cool nightclubs, a superb range of shopping and eateries to suit every taste and budget, plus regular appearances by local and international artists and bands at venues like Belfast Waterfront and Odyssey Arena. One of the most popular attractions is Titanic Belfast, which marks the construction in the city of one of the most famous vessels of all time. You shouldn’t miss the chance to see this stunning monument, and if you have time go inside to be taken on a journey back in time to find out more about Titanic, and the city itself. Belfast is also your gateway to Northern Ireland, from the striking coast at Portrush to the rugged beauty of the Mountains of Mourne. This is the landscape which provides the backdrop for epic TV series Game of Thrones, and it is yours to discover when you take your car on the ferry. You can explore the castles and museums, visit the famous sights like the Giant’s Causeway, and if you pack your golf clubs you could even take in a round or two at some of the spectacular courses. You can discover even more of the ‘Emerald Isle’ by sailing into Belfast then driving south to Dublin to catch your ferry home. Your journey can take in both historic cities, as well as the spectacular scenery and picturesque towns and villages which lie between the two.
