Side Trips

Belfast

— 4 nights
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 Carnlough Bay Boat Tours (in Carnlough) and Coast Rd (in Larne). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Titanic Belfast, take in nature's colorful creations at Belfast Botanical Gardens, get a new perspective on nature at Ulster Museum, and steep yourself in history at Crumlin Road Gaol.

To find maps, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, read our Belfast road trip app.

Unlike the place travelers found several decades ago, the Northern Ireland of today is a rejuvenated and dynamic region attracting increasing amounts of tourism. Belfast, the region’s biggest urban center and capital, is a hip city with vibrant nightlife and a thriving gourmet culinary scene, providing an extensive list of indulgent things to do. The region’s renowned coastline, featuring the World Heritage-listed Giant’s Causeway, is an attractive holiday destination for hikers, cyclists, photographers, and other adventurers of all descriptions. Northern Ireland has seen more than its fair share of political and economic unrest, yet the people of this region have always remained proud of their cultural and artistic heritage, providing visitors with a warm hospitality hard to find almost anywhere else in the world.
