Belfast Top 3

Titanic Belfast - Titanic Belfast lies at the heart of the Titanic Quarter. Today’s immersive exhibition tells the ill-fated liner’s story as you explore the heart of this bustling quarter with boat tours, a sea safari, and step back in time and stand at the bottom of the enormous Thompson Dry Dock –which remains completely unchanged since 1911.

Cathedral Quarter - Home to cobbled streets, beautiful old buildings and photography exhibitions the Cathedral Quarter is the perfect place for artistic inspiration during your Belfast stay. Catch a performance at the MAC theatre or sample local cuisine in one of the many restaurants and bars on offer, a local favourite being the John Hewitt, renowned for its music on a nightly basis.

Belfast Food - From local food markets to Michelin star restaurants, Belfast will always excite your taste buds. Join a food tour of the city to meet local producers and sample the culinary highlights, ranging from handmade teas and chocolate to freshly baked breads. Don’t forget to pop by some local distilleries too where you can sip on a Jawbox Gin, Belfast Blonde or warm up with a hot Bushmills whiskey.

Outside the City

The Causeway Coast - Belfast and the Causeway Coastal Route was recently voted the Lonely Planet’s number 1 region to visit in 2018. While there are many mysterious wonders along the route, receiving this award isn’t one of them. Just north of Belfast you’ll see the road hug the coastline as you pass picturesque villages and breath-taking views. Tackle the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge along the way; the swaying structure is suspended above a 100ft chasm. Or explore the Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
 
Derry/Londonderry -

2018 is the 400th anniversary of the walled city of Derry/Londonderry so what better time to experience its calendar of cultural events. Stroll the walls of Europe’s only remaining walled city, hear the Foyle River thunder under the Peace Bridge and drool over hot-buttered soda farls in your new favourite café. In the evenings, music trails out of most bars and venues like the Verbal Arts Centre and the Millennium Forum, drawing visitors from all over.

Game of Thrones -

Having been used for so many key Game of Thrones filming locations, it would be understandable to mistake Northern Ireland for the real Westeros. Castle Ward Estate was the setting for Winterfell locations such as Robb’s camp in the Riverlands and the Battlefield of Baelor. Travel to County Antrim to walk down The Kings Road, an avenue of 18th century beech trees, known in Northern Ireland as The Dark Hedges. And if including one or two filming locations on your itinerary just isn’t enough, book a Game of Thrones tour and cover Cushenden Caves, Ballintoy Harbour and the Iron islands.

Belfast city guide: Soho




Think modern Belfast and the shiny, new Titanic Quarter might spring to mind. But when it comes to creating its own rhythm, you can’t beat the cluster of streets around St Anne’s Cathedral. Filled with young musicians jamming in local bars, and music fans browsing vinyl and vintage stores, it’s the place to come to soak up the sounds of the Northern Ireland capital.
