About Belfast

Including tips for the best time to visit Belfast

Few cities could claim to have undergone a transformation quite so spectacular as Belfast’s. The capital of Northern Ireland remains characterised by old shipyards and elegant Victorian houses, but its world-class museums, modern art galleries and cosy restaurants have given the city a new lease of life.

Points of interest include Titanic Belfast, an award-winning and state-of-the-art museum that tells the story of the world’s most famous ship, and the Botanic Gardens, which houses tropical plants and birds inside its birdcage-like glass dome. Make your way through music-filled ‘trad bars’, take a free tour of Belfast City Hall, or shop for fresh food and local art at St. George’s Market – the oldest and most popular market in the city.

But the appeal of Belfast doesn’t rest solely in its centre. The city is also a great base for visiting various filming locations from 'Game of Thrones'. Immerse yourself in the world of the hit TV series, with guided visits to ‘Winterfell Castle’, ‘the Haunted Forest’ and the ‘Iron Islands' on the country’s craggy northern coastline.

At night, head to the city’s Cathedral Quarter for the trendiest bars in town, and to experience the city's characteristic warm welcome.

What other travellers say about Belfast


Titanic Experience was fantastic.

14 October 2019

Titanic Experience was fantastic. Drove straight through city centre with no problem to get to the north Antrim coast road. Not happy with telephone call to Red Cross when I tried to get a wheelchair on loan for my wife. I was uncomfortable with the third degree about her over the phone. I offered to visit their office near City Airport, but the rep insisted I answer his questions over the phone. I ended the call. telling him to forget it. On the contrary, we easily got a wheelchair at the Titanic Experience, & the assisted travel people at City Airport were wonderful, arriving & leaving.

The best place on the planet.

The best place on the planet.....Slightly biased in that statement....I’m part of the genetic strands that seen Belfast in its infancy and contributed to the fine structures of commerce and industrial development that is for all to see

The city sightseeing bus tour is a must.

13 October 2019

The city sightseeing bus tour is a must. I did the full tour twice! Really great guides and it allows to get familiar with the layout of the city. Very good value around £12.50 I got my ticket at 3pm-ish and its valid till the same time next day. Stops at all the major attractions. City and people itself is everything they say Ireland is. Big and friendly. Really enjoyed my stay and will definitely return.

I went to a performance at the Grand Opera and the Hotel...

12 October 2019

I went to a performance at the Grand Opera and the Hotel could not have been better since it is next door , so it was really convenient. There were excellent and well known Bars nearby which I thought reflected the character of Belfast that I appreciated a lot.

The small local, independent tours were great.

12 October 2019

The small local, independent tours were great. Also there were plenty of day-trip bus tours all around the coast. I particularly liked the traditional pub and music tours. The prison was interesting and the guide knowledgable.

It's definitely worth buying a hop on hop off tour...

11 October 2019

It's definitely worth buying a hop on hop off tour ticket for the 2 days including the titanic experience as you actually get use of the bus for 3 days. Parking is quite expensive so as we stayed a bit further out it was better to take a taxi in which cost around £10.
