Belfast Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia


The capital of Northern Ireland has traditionally been thought of a secondary holiday location
to Dublin. However Belfast is quickly establishing itself
as the place to visit for a truly authentic Irish experience. The history of Northern Ireland’s capital
searches back to the Bronze Ages, and during the 19th century, the city began to flourish as a naval port
and ship-building center, famously being the birthplace of the Titanic. Perhaps the most famous period of Belfast’s
history, however, is its most tragic – a period of
political conflict spanning three decades. And the city still has plenty of reminders
of the troubles, in particular the striking and sometimes intimidating
murals depicting various events of the times. Belfast has plenty of traditional pubs were
visitors can enjoy a pint with the locals, and there are dozens of historic buildings,
hotels and old streets, most of which can be explored on foot.

  1. My comment is could do better. Where was the Botanic Gardens and the Titanic Quarter and the beautiful City Hall? Very poor.

  2. Wow this desperately needs updated as so much has been done to Belfast since this. The worst of the paramilitary murals are gone and replaced with great street art, Titanic [Voted 2017 world number one tourist attraction] has been built, SSE arena wasn't featured in the film, nor any of the great bars and restaurants of cathedral quarter, they did no filming down along the Lagan walk with the fantastic apartments [that can be rented by visitors] available to stay in. No description of the city as a gateway to a wider Northern Ireland experience [after all, the original film here showed scenes from Derry/Londonderry] The Fantastic Antrim Coast drive [a must for GOT fans], The Giant's Causeway and indeed the walls of Derry/Londonderry, The fishing villages of the county Down coast, The Enniskillen Lakeland, the watersports of Portrush or Ards Penninsula, Carrick Castle, Dunluce Castle, Cavehill Country Park and Belfast Zoo, where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea, The splendour of Mountstewart House….. C'mon Expedia. You can do better than just repeatedly showing scenes of Queen's University, Stormont and the big wheel that isn't there any more. If yer gonna showcase Belfast [or better still Northern Ireland] do it justice.

  3. There’s stuff in this video that’s from Derry, specifically from the free Derry museum. Along with the murals on the walls in the bogside.
    Poor research and use of promotion lads considering Derry is over an hour away.
