Belfast

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Causeway Coastal Route (in Ballintoy), Bushmills (Dunseverick Falls, Giant's Causeway, &more) and Slemish Mountain (in Broughshane). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to City Hall, examine the collection at SS Nomadic, take a memorable drive along Coast Rd, and learn more about the world around you at Ulster Museum.

To find where to stay, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Belfast trip maker website.

Johannesburg, South Africa to Belfast is an approximately 17.5-hour flight. Traveling from Johannesburg to Belfast, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Johannesburg in December, with highs in Belfast at 10°C and lows at 5°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Mon) so you can travel to Enniskillen.
