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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Belfast: Coast Rd (in Larne), Ballygally Beach (in Ballygally) and Ballylumford Dolmen (in Whitehead). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Crumlin Road Gaol, admire the masterpieces at Ulster Museum, see the interesting displays at SS Nomadic, and step into the grandiose world of Belfast Castle.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Belfast online tour builder.
