About Belfast

Including tips for the best time to visit Belfast

Belfast’s recent metamorphosis is nothing short of incredible. While the capital of Northern Ireland is still characterized by old shipyards and elegant Victorian houses, nowadays you’ll find world-class museums, trendy art galleries, and cozy restaurants all putting this city in a modern-day renaissance.

Points of interest include Titanic Belfast—an award-winning, state-of-the-art museum that tells the story of the world’s most famous ship—and the Botanic Gardens, home to tropical plants and birds inside a birdcage-shaped glass dome. Check out some 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.

Belfast’s charm goes well beyond its city center. It’s also a great starting point for visiting different filming locations from “Game of Thrones.” Immerse yourself in the world of the hit TV series with guided tours of “Winterfell Castle,” “The Haunted Forest,” and "The Iron Islands” on the country’s rugged northern coast.

At night, head to the city’s Cathedral Quarter for the coolest bars in town and a taste of the city's famous hospitality.

Due to our luggage being delayed in England we lost a day so only got to spend a morning in Belfast. We drove down to the Titanic Quarter and visited the museum. We found it very enjoyable and worth the entrance fee.

It is a beautiful city and very quaint! The Titanic exhibition and river walk are fantastic. We took the Black Taxi tour of the Troubles. We learn so much about both sides! I hope Peace continues and a better future is in store for this part of the city!

We visited the Giant's Causeway, a must visit if you come to Belfast! A world renowned heritage site that brings you so close to the best nature has to offer, with a wide view of the Atlantic Ocean. We also visited the Titanic Belfast museum, and as an avid Titanic fan, this was also a must-visit place! Transport is easy with many buses that passes through the city centre to get where you wanted to. For a 3 days 2 nights trip, this was what we afforded to do but it summarized Belfast pretty well for us!

This was not my first trip to Belfast, so had a good idea what to expect. It's not a big city but has plenty to offer in way of sightseeing, entertainment and good eating. Will return again it is a lovely city to visit.

I went there for four days.

April 30, 2019

I went there for four days. Belfast is a nice city. On the first day, I went for indoor skydiving; it is expensive but worth it. Also, I am a big fan of Game of Thrones so I went to two trips with "Game of Thrones Tours", one trip around winterfell filming locations and the other is in iron islands filming locations. Both were great trips. The tour guides were actually working as extras or stand ins in the show so we heard some great stories on the set. On the last day, I walked around the city and went to Ulster Museum.

Really friendly people, plenty to see and if you are GOT fan then take the 1-day tour it was fun. Lots of places that have free parking and no charges to get into seeing places of interest. 2 to 3 days is enough unless you travel around the country.
