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 Larne (Carnfunnock Country Park & Coast Rd), Glenarm forest (in Glenarm) and Nendrum Monastic Site (in Comber). There's much more to do: get a sense of history and politics at City Hall, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, see the interesting displays at Titanic Belfast, and brush up on your military savvy at War Years Remembered (War Museum).

To see photos, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Belfast trip app.

Traveling by car from Enniskillen to Belfast takes 2 hours. In June, plan for daily highs up to 20°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.

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.
