Northern Ireland & Belfast at a glance
In recent years, Northern Ireland has reshaped itself into one of the world’s must-visit destinations, easily accessible from the UK mainland and packed with unforgettable things to see and do.
It starts with the vibrancy and energy of its capital city Belfast, host to the Titanic Visitor Experience as well as no end of exceptional museums, galleries plus world class shopping, bars and restaurants.
Then further afield, there’s the chance to explore the country’s wild, rugged coastlines and rural landscapes, home to charming villages and towns and world-renowned attractions including the Giant’s Causeway, the Marble Arch Caves and the Gobbins Cliff Path.
There’s a tradition here of a warm welcome backed up by fantastic food and drink. Northern Ireland’s restaurant scene is thriving thanks to an abundance of fresh local produce from field, stream and sea.
Northern Ireland is perfect for visiting more than one area in the same trip. From Belfast to Derry the Causeway Coastal Route is a must with its dramatic scenery and atmospheric heritage. If you’re a Games of Thrones fan a lot of these iconic locations will be familiar; filming of seasons one to eight took place in around 25 locations around Northern Ireland.
Perfect if you’re looking for:
- Rich history and fascinating traditions
- Spectacular landscapes
- Ancient castles, historic sites and stunning architecture
- World-renowned local produce
- Belfast - a city of buzzing culture and the birthplace of the world's most famous ship
