City Hall

Belfast City Hall is the city’s most iconic building. It was commissioned by Queen Victoria when Belfast achieved city status.

It can be visited inside and admission is free. It consists of 14 rooms that tell the history of the city and the institution itself. However, if you’re in town for a short time, I don’t recommend visiting the inside of City Hall.

Cathedral Quarter

The Cathedral Quarter is the most vibrant place in Belfast. This is where you will find most of the city’s pubs and some of Belfast’s most photogenic streets.

Crown Liquor Saloon

Belfast’s most iconic pub, and one of the most beautiful in the world. Crown Liquor Saloon itself is an institution, and almost a work of art. It retains the typical Irish pub snugs, it’s decorated with great detail, and they serve a craft beer (Crown Belfast).

A must-visit in the city!

🗺 Belfast Murals

Following the conflict in Northern Ireland, the murals in Belfast (and Derry) have become one of the top things to see in Northern Ireland.

The murals tell the story of the history of Northern Ireland, and in particular the city of Belfast. The most famous streets are the Falls Road (Catholic) and the Shankill Road (Protestant).

Belfast’s murals can be visited on foot, with a tour or in a black taxi. The best way, if you want to save time on your journey, is by black taxi. It’s quicker, and a local guide will tell you the history of the murals.

If you want to visit them on your own, on this website Belfast Mural you will find all the information you need to see the murals of Belfast: locations, history of each one of them, etc. If you decide to do it on foot with a tour, I recommend this tour.

🚢 Titanic Experience

The Titanic Museum is one of the main tourist attractions in Belfast.

The building that houses this exhibition stands out for its starry shape, in honour of the company that built the Titanic, White Star Line. In addition to its shape, its aluminium panel construction makes it one of the most recognisable buildings in the city of Belfast.

Discover the history of this famous ship through this interactive exhibition, with replicas of the cabins, a 3D simulation of what the Titanic looked like and a tour of the shipyard.

Please note that the minimum recommended time to visit Titanic Experience is 2 hours, preferably between 3 and 4 hours.

🍴 Places to eat in Belfast

No trip should be complete without an enjoyable route dedicated to food. In this case, I’m going to recommend two places so that you don’t have to choose.

Fish City has the best Fish and Chips in Northern Ireland. It’s a tiny restaurant, located near Victoria Square and with a very cosy atmosphere, it’s a must visit in Belfast!

Bunsen specialises in burgers. In fact, they’re some of the best you’ll find on the island. Plus, they’re right next to some of Belfast’s most iconic pubs.

To complete your list, here’s a list of cafes in Belfast 😋.
