Highlights of Belfast

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 484

Venture to Belfast to experience the highlights of this famous city. Staying in a premium hotel, you’ll learn firsthand about the city’s fascinating history, which includes the construction of the Titanic and the violent strife of the Troubles. Admire its gorgeous buildings, dine in its pubs, and enjoy Northern Irish hospitality.


This 3-day Northern Irish vacation takes you to Belfast.

The capital of Northern Ireland has a complicated history. During the times of the Troubles, it was a dangerous place full of civil strife, but post-1997, the city has been reborn. Today, it’s a gorgeous port city, one that honours its heritage as a shipbuilding centre of Europe while respecting the hard won truce of the post-Troubles era. Staying at the 4-star Europa Hotel, you’ll explore the city’s rich heritage and admire its restored Victorian buildings and picturesque waterfront. Chief among the city’s highlights is the Titanic Experience, which charts the history of the famous ship and its tragic end. Gain admission to the Titanic Experience and learn how Irish shipbuilders constructed it in the Belfast shipyards. The next day, join a black taxi tour of Falls Road and Shankill Road to learn about the Troubles and bear witness to the communities most beset by the conflict. During the rest of your time in Belfast, take advantage of the Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour to visit other city landmarks, from the Botanic Gardens to Queen's University to mighty Belfast Castle. At the end of your stay, connect to the train station to continue your onward journey.

This trip to Northern Ireland is a great addition to a longer trip to the United Kingdom and the British Isles.
