Our tips for Belfast

  • Prince of pubs. Famed around the world for it’s dazzling décor and an epic ale selection, put the Crown Liquor Saloon – a Victorian gin palace dating back to the 1820s – at the top of your Belfast sightseeing itinerary.
  • Shop till’ you drop. St. George’s Market has stood the test of time since it first opened its doors in the 1890. Pop in on a Saturday when local food, art and crafts have pride of place, and talented local musicians take center-stage. For the food alone, this is a Belfast day trip you won’t want to miss.
  • Go directly to jail. Visit Crumlin Road Gaol (locally known as “The Crum"), Northern Ireland’s only surviving jail from the Victorian era. If you’re feeling short of things to do in Belfast, don’t miss the live Johnny Cash tribute concert, or hang around after dark for the paranormal tour if you're feeling brave.
