What to do in Belfast City Centre ?
Whether you are visiting Belfast for a few days or for a longer holiday, you will never have to wonder what to do. The largest city on the island of Ireland offers a lot of activities, no matter what your interests are.
A leisurely walk around the city centre is a great way to get familiar with the place and to discover some of its most renowned landmarks. From your bed and breakfast, head to the City Hall, at the heart of the city, and walk towards Queens University.
For a historical visit, don’t miss the Political Murals, a testimony to the turmoil that affected the city for 30 years. When you are tired of exploring, enjoy a well-deserved break at the Crown Bar, one of the most fascinating in town, with its unique decor, dim lighting and sought-after booths.
For more relaxation you can enjoy a moment at the swimming pool or in the Botanic Gardens, the most popular park in town. If you are traveling with children, you may want to look for cheap b&b with family rooms, to enjoy some quality time after long days of sightseeing.
Located on Queen’s Island is popular The Odyssey arena, which hosts high-profile sporting and entertainment events, as well as music concerts. City center hotels and b&b’s are close to the Golden Mile and the bars, restaurants, cafes and shops.
Spend a day in the Titanic Quarter, a renovated dock yard that’s home to the award winning Titanic Belfast Museum, a building both striking on the outside and informative on the inside. Other key attractions include City Hall, the grandest landmark in the city and the Ulster Museum which offers an in depth insight into the history of Northern Ireland.
The best shopping can be found along Cornmarket although surprise finds can be discovered all over the city.
The arts scene in Belfast is another of its biggest draws, so much so that on the first Thursday of each month many galleries open late.
Belfast nightlife has long been a secret to outsiders, but now more and more visitors are discovering how much fun the locals have at night. Start with a meal at a Michelin starred restaurant such as Eipic and then head to one of the pubs or bars in the Cathedral Quarter or along Dublin Road.
A short trip out of Belfast will give visitors the chance to take a whiskey distillery tour or take a visit to the Giants Causeway, one of the natural wonders of the UK.
Budget Friendly Places to Stay – Where to Stay ?
Finding a place to stay in Belfast is quite easy, as numerous hotels and bed and breakfast are located in various districts of the city. The question, then, is which area you should choose to live in during your holiday. If you are visiting the capital for a short period of time, accommodation in the city centre makes sense, as it will make all your visits and travel fast and easy.
Indeed, the area around Donegall Square and the City Hall is small enough to walk everywhere and numerous buses allow you to reach other parts of town during the day. For a quieter option, you can find a cheap b&b situated around Botanic Avenue, a leafy district near Queen’s University where lovely cafés, shops and restaurants abound. If it is culture you are looking for, staying in the Cathedral Quarter is a good idea.
Other elements to take into account when you are choosing where to stay are the amenities provided, which can include a swimming pool, family rooms, that allow dogs, lounges, and more.Family rooms can often accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. Many of these comfortable rooms have one double bed and one double sofa bed.
Another is option is staying in a fully equipped apartment to rent, which you can rent for one night, a weekend, or longer.
