Belfast

4.3
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. Rejuvenated by a decade of peace and prosperity, Belfast provides visitors with a more stimulating experience than some busier and more tourist-driven destinations. Travelers are welcomed like old friends by the patrons of the city’s numerous pubs, as the engaging locals love to find out what draws visitors to their little part of the world. A cultural meeting point between Britain and Ireland, Belfast exhibits an air of determined optimism, boasting a growing number of new hotels, bars, restaurants, shops, and clubs, as well as a visitor-friendly city center that has recently been pedestrianized. Belfast is in Northern Ireland. Our United Kingdom trip itinerary builder site combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
