Amp up your energy levels because Belfast packs it in when it comes to sightseeing. Here are ten to try!
Immerse yourself in the story of the Titanic, the ship that was built in Belfast and, as the world knows, hit an iceberg. The tragedy is now commemorated with an impressive visitor center at the very place where the liner was crafted.
For an authentic taste of Belfast life, make your way to the Victorian St George’s Market. More than 150 traders set up stalls laden with everything from antiques to exotic meat. Visit on the weekend for free jazz.
One of the best ways to see Belfast’s famous wall art is to sign up for a Black Taxi Tour. Knowledgeable drivers supply an informative history lesson, which reflects on both the city’s intrinsic traditions and tells the story of the Troubles.
The musical walk of fame in Belfast is so long they needed a bus tour. Trace Van Morrison’s footsteps and visit the fantastic exhibition at the Oh Yeah Centre. Don’t miss out on free live traditional music in the evenings – just choose a pub.
Gleaming like a quirky work of modern art, the Ulster Museum’s forte is the history and prehistory of Ireland using exhibitions that trace the rise of Belfast’s crafts and trades. Admission is free.
Belfast has some great bars: the Victorian attired Crown Liquor Saloon, a stylish cocktail bar at The Merchant Hotel, and the historic Duke of York where Titanic builders constructed the bar in exchange for whiskey.
The Palm House at the Belfast Botanic Gardens is an iconic city sight. Plant enthusiasts can explore the array of geraniums, fuchsias and begonias while many other visitors simply lounge in the gardens enjoying the views for free.
