Top 5 things to do in Belfast
There are many great things to see on a Belfast last minute holiday, but to make sure you don’t miss out, we’ve listed the top five things to do!
1. Visit the birthplace of Titanic
Titanic lovers rejoice! You can experience everything Titanic at the Titanic Quarter in Belfast. It’s where the famous ship was built and you can learn all about the process and story of the Titanic in the fantastic museum. There is even a recreation of the classic staircase where you can create a “Jack & Rose” moment (Titanic movie fans will recognise this). There is also the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon tea on a Sunday in this very area. However, it books up quickly, so if you're interested, you'll need to book in advance (or hope for a cancellation).
2. Take a Game of Thrones tour
The world famous hit TV series Game of Thrones has a variety of locations close to Belfast city. There are many Game of Thrones tours leaving from the city that will take you to iconic destinations such as Winterfell Castle, the Dark Hedges (the road to King's Landing), and many more. You can even try your hand at archery and dress up in Game of Thrones costumes - a must-do for fans of the show.
3. Take a mural tour of Belfast
Belfast is filled with murals that reflect the history of Ireland. This is a riveting and unique way to discover the recent conflict in Irish history as told by locals who have actually experienced the troubles themselves. You’ll get to witness amazing paintings and you’ll have the chance to visit the peace wall which once divided Belfast.
4. Visit the beautiful Belfast Castle
Located on the slopes of Cavehill Country Park, this beautiful castle offers not only a beautiful building but stunning views over the city too. It’s a popular wedding site and you’ll see why if you visit. Enjoy a bite to eat and an Irish pint after you’ve explored the surroundings.
5. Explore the history at Crumlin Road Gaol
Crumlin Road Gaol was founded in 1845 and closed its doors as a working prison in 1996. During those 150 years, the gaol housed murderers, republican and loyalist prisoners, and witnessed births, deaths, and marriages. It has also been the centre of executions, escapes, hunger strikes, and riots. It’s truly a place bursting with intrigue and history, and it's a key part of the history of the troubles in Northern Ireland.
