Our (carefully selected) suggestions for other things to do in Belfast and beyond to make your trip even more special!

TITANIC BUILDING

Because you can’t come to Belfast and not learn about the big ship we built 100 years ago which sank first time out.  They made a film about it too.  There’s lots of other things to do in the Titanic Quarter too.  As you can guess by the name, quite a few (but not all) are related to the ship.

ULSTER MUSEUM

In the University area and right beside Botanic Gardens.  A highly recommended (and free!) museum with everything from archaeology and natural history to art galleries and a much improved Troubles section.  Don’t get caught out, – it’s not open on Mondays (except Bank Holidays).  Nice touch of Brutalist architecture in its facades too!

CRUMLIN ROAD GAOL

On the outskirts of the city centre in North Belfast.  A Victorian gaol which is now a tourist attraction with guided tours.  Significant Troubles related history, but not the main focus of their tours.  Still worth it probably.

BELFAST CITY HALL

City Hall looks pretty good from the outside, but the inside is even more impressive.  Lots of marble and stained glass, and over a dozen exhibition rooms charting the history of the city from the first settlements up until about 50 years ago, and then the exhibition mysteriously stops….

AWAY A WEE WALK

The Giant’s Causeway is a MUST DO day tour from Belfast. What most people don’t know is that the best of the stunning coastline is really only available to those who will hike 5 miles along the high cliffs beyond the main site. Eimear Flanagan from ‘Away A Wee Walk’ specilises in taking guests the long way and the ‘wrong’ way to the stones (and other stunning places).
