Vibrant city that confirms that politics has broken out in Northern Ireland. Unlike Derry/Londonderry which is nerve-racking, this is an exciting place...

Belfast is the capital of Northern Ireland and, despite suffering for decades during the infamous Troubles, the current period of political calm and a vibrant, modern cultural landscape has propelled itself into one of the country's most intriguing cities. The city centre and Victoria square have been renovated and infused with new shopping malls, boutique hotels and exquisite fine dining options, alongside Belfast's historic landmarks and famed political murals (pronounced "muriels" by locals). The Titanic Experience, a multimillion dollar architectural wonder situated on the harbor where the historic ship was constructed, now attracts thousands of visitors every month. Dublin might hog the spotlight, but Belfast is definitely starting to shine again.

Belfast will take you by surprise. What was once torn apart by the religious disputes of The Troubles has been rebuilt into the cultural oasis of Northern Ireland. The nightlife offers a fun mix of dance clubs and live music options, with a variety of art and music festivals occurring throughout the year. Take a day tour up to The Giant's Causeway, and be sure to book one that allows you to make stops along the way and take in the outstanding views of the Antrim Coast. Come back to Belfast that night for some hearty pub food and a pint at The Crown Bar. For historical tours, check out the docks where the Titanic was built. I would also suggest the sobering black taxi tours through the Protestant and Catholic neighborhoods, which are still separated by a fence that closes each night. Belfast has the unique mixture of a dark past but bright future. Any trip to Ireland wouldn't be complete without visiting here.
