Delve into the heart and soul of irrepressible Northern Ireland on this entertaining and enlightening day tour of Belfast.
The painted murals and walls of the political district are a great starting point for this educational tour and provide a visual reminder of Belfast’s painful past. Depicting messages of troubles, hope, conflict and peace, these murals are a colourful remnant of a tumultuous time gone by and offer a window into Belfast’s recent political history. Reflect on the messages and imagine what life was like for locals living here only a matter of years ago.
Continue on to a character-filled local pub where a tasty, traditional Irish meal awaits. Savour a warm lunch, share stories over a glass of Guinness with new friends and enjoy some good, old-fashioned Irish ‘Craic’.
Afterwards, hit the streets of Belfast for a walking tour with an informative and fun guide, who will point out famous sites as well as hidden secrets. See the historic buildings, churches and squares of Belfast while learning about this city’s historical legacy and recent inspirational rebirth. Belfast is now home to an intriguing mix of hip bars, modern restaurants and cool cafes, which occupy space alongside historic cathedrals, heritage churches and quaint pubs.
