A city with character, Belfast remains a great place for a leisurely exploration, as it is still relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists, who usually opt to visit Dublin instead.
Get out of town with these interesting Belfast side-trips: Bushmills (Causeway Coastal Route & Giant's Causeway), Steensons Jewelers (in Glenarm) and Coast Rd (in Larne). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Titanic Belfast, steep yourself in history at Crumlin Road Gaol, play a few rounds at Royal County Down Golf Club, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

To see other places to visit, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Belfast trip planning website .
