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.
Get out of town with these interesting Belfast side-trips: Coast Rd (in Larne) and The Abingdon Collection (in Omagh). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Crumlin Road Gaol, see the interesting displays at Ulster Aviation Society, don't miss a visit to Peace Wall, and get engrossed in the history at Ulster Museum.

For ratings, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Belfast trip planner.
