Belfast is Northern Ireland’s capital. It was the birthplace of the RMS Titanic, which famously struck an iceberg and sunk in 1912. As Belfast is quite a small town, I did a full day tour visiting the countryside and coast using this company: http://www.gameofthronestours.com/
- Titanic Quarters. A great educational museum presenting the history of Belfast and its shipping industry, as well as the the events that lead up to the famous and tragic event of the Titanic sinking. There is even a short ride inside the museum as part of the tour! You can spend a good 2 hours visiting the whole place.
- Queen’s University. The exterior looks incredibly beautiful
- Go on the well-known Game of throne’s tour. Most filming was done in Northern Ireland and most of the support role actors/actresses are from here too!
- Cross the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. You have to get lucky with the weather like I did in order for the bridge to the open for crossing.
- Giant’s Causeway. Unique rock formation with no one really knowing the real truth behind this place. You can apparently find such formation in Scotland too.
Others: Ulster museum and botanical garden, City Hall, Opera House where I watched a show called ‘Crazy’ and St George’s Market.
