Belfast

Belfast ©
A city with character, Belfast remains a great place for a leisurely exploration, as it is still relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists, who usually opt to visit Dublin instead.
Venture out of the city with trips to Coast Rd (in Larne), Clearsky Adventure Centre Northern Ireland (in Strangford) and Royal County Down Golf Club (in Newcastle). The adventure continues: ponder the world of politics at City Hall, examine the collection at SS Nomadic, steep yourself in history at Parliament Buildings, and take in nature's colorful creations at Belfast Botanical Gardens.

To see traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Belfast travel route planner.
