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: St John the Evangelist (in Carnlough), Ballygally Beach (in Ballygally) and Coast Rd (in Larne). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Giant's Causeway, get a sense of history and politics at City Hall, see the interesting displays at Titanic Belfast, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Bushmills Distillery.

Plan my day in Belfast using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Belfast. In November in Belfast, expect temperatures between 11°C during the day and 5°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sat) early enough to go by car to Ballintoy.
