Belfast Flights Guide
The capital of Northern Island, Belfast, whose claim to fame is that it was the city where the doomed Titanic was built, is a lively city that has regained its place on the map of great holiday destinations. Located near the mouth of the River Lagan, this port city was very important during the Industrial Revolution, but after the Titanic's end, shipbuilding ceased to be big business in the city. Despite this, Belfast is still home to the largest dry dock in the world.
The city has recently restored the entire waterfront complex, the largest waterfront development in Europe to date. This has transformed the city and offers visitors a variety of trendy restaurants, chic boutiques and traditional Irish pubs. There's also the Titanic Quarter, which is currently being built, with a number of modern hotels, including the Art Deco Merchant Hotel, cafes, restaurants, bars, art galleries, upmarket boutiques in Malmaison and an assortment of entertainment facilities. The entire development is expected to take three decades to complete, but is already drawing visitors from all over the world.
To commemorate the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, Belfast opened the Titanic Belfast in 2012, a popular interactive attraction. Other popular sights to visit include Belfast City Hall, the city's beautiful Grand Opera House, the old Customs House, historic Queen's University and Belfast Castle, near Cave Hill Country Park.
