Why Visit Belfast?

Belfast City

City breaks are a great way to explore the world, without having to dig deep into your pockets to afford a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. With a range of cities located across Europe and beyond, it can be difficult choosing where to start, but if you’re hoping to escape the rat race for a couple of days this summer, Belfast would be a great option for you.

Located just across the North Sea, you don’t have to travel for long before you reach the shores of Northern Ireland, and if you book a room at Travelodge’s Belfast hotel, you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank either.

Northern Ireland has experienced some troubled times over the years. It was once amid a whirlwind of convict and turbulence, but nowadays, it’s full of culture, entertainment, heritage and adventure waiting to be explored. Visiting Belfast would be a great way to see this for yourself, with a multitude of sights and attractions that can help you to appreciate how fascinating the country, and the city, is.

Belfast Titanic

The city’s Titanic Quarter has been overhauled considerably over recent years, with Titanic Belfast – the imposing museum – at the helm. Wandering around this awe-inspiring museum is a must for anyone who would like to delve deeper into the history of this monumental ship.

Unmissable spots include the City Hall, the Ulster Museum – a treasure trove full of exhibits from around the world – Belfast Castle, and St George’s Market, which is one of the oldest and most impressive markets in the UK.

Time your visit wisely and you could catch an international act at the Odyssey Arena, or a top performance at the Grand Opera House.

Full of energy, fun and excitement, Belfast is a must for anyone in search of a city break. Grab yourself a pint of the black stuff and enjoy what the city has to offer – you’ll have a grand time.

  1. My adoptive father was “Irish” although his own mother was adopted so there is not certainty on his true heritage. He did visit it back in the 1990s and brought me back a special wool sweater. He passed away last year. Rest his soul. I hope you had a great time. Blessings~

  2. My six step children were born and raised in Northern Ireland (I don’t think they ever lived in Belfast but their mum was from there I think). I’d love to visit one day, it’s on my bucket list!

  3. I never thought of Ireland as a big metropolitan area. Somehow, I had it in my head of rolling hills of grass. Thanks for waking me up. Love the Titanic Museum. Awesome.

  4. I would like to visit Belfast. I’d love to go to the countryside of Ireland and then take a quick trip there.

    1. Fret not, Belfast is nowhere near being “rat-racy”; you can get countryside after a 15 min drive from the city and there’s plenty of nature about 🙂

I love all comments :-)
