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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Belfast: The Abingdon Collection (in Omagh) and Coast Rd (in Larne). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Crumlin Road Gaol, admire the natural beauty at Belfast Botanical Gardens, examine the collection at Titanic Belfast, and get a sense of history and politics at City Hall.

Bangor, USA to Belfast is an approximately 20.5-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Bangor to Belfast is 5 hours. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Bangor in October since evenings lows in Belfast dip to °F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sat) so you can go by car to Portrush.
