Belfast

— 8 nights
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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Cushendun Village, The Wee Tram, Queen's University, and other attractions. Get a sense of the local culture at Titanic Belfast and Cathedral Quarter. Ulster Museum and Irish Republican History Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Explore Belfast's surroundings by going to Springhill House (in Moneymore), St. Patrick's Cathedral (Roman Catholic) (in Armagh) and Downpatrick (Inch Abbey, Downpatrick & County Down Railway, &more). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Crumlin Road Gaol, get engrossed in the history at Irish Linen Centre and Lisburn Museum, make a trip to Albert Memorial Clock Tower, and admire the striking features of City Hall.

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.
