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.
Explore Belfast's surroundings by going to Coast Rd (in Larne) and Blackhead Path (in Whitehead). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of City Hall, examine the collection at SS Nomadic, have some family-friendly fun at Clip 'n Climb Dundonald, and steep yourself in history at Crumlin Road Gaol.

To find reviews, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Belfast tour itinerary site.

Manchester to Belfast is an approximately 3- hour flight. You can also ride a ferry; or do a combination of train, bus, and ferry. April in Belfast sees daily highs of 13°C and lows of 6°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Bushmills.
