Belfast is a capital city couched scenically on the coast below the Cave Hill and the Black Mountain. Here, great ships of the past, such as the Titanic, were built and launched – and world-famous Irish linen is widely available. Belfast is a modern city, yet the locals exude a friendliness you expect in a smaller place. Their hospitality is legendary, their warmth genuine. All around, the excitement of a new age is palpable, here where diversity is celebrated, bringing out the cultural richness of the place. As you’d expect, Belfast offers the visitor just about every delight you could hope for. Sample the fine cuisine and immerse yourself in the sparkling nightlife – pubs, clubs and restaurants are a buzz with excitement and cafe culture is alive with conversation, music and fun. For great entertainment, go down to the booming Lagan waterfront, home to the W5 and The Odyssey arena, where among other events, the Belfast Giants ice hockey team play or catch a show by visiting rock star at the Waterfront Hall. For those in search of more lofty activities, you can appreciate the graceful antiquity of the Ulster Museum, home to the Spanish Amarda Treasure. Be moved by the renowned singers who grace the stage of the Opera House. Embrace the natural wonder of the Botanic Gardens. Admire the stately splendor of Queen’s University and browse through the Linenhall Library and Fernhill House, where you’ll get a window on the city’s rich history and culture. And on the outskirts of the city, visit the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum in Culra.
