Belfast Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

The capital of Northern Ireland has traditionally been thought of a secondary holiday location
to Dublin. However Belfast is quickly establishing itself
as the place to visit for a truly authentic Irish experience. The history of Northern Ireland’s capital
searches back to the Bronze Ages, and during the 19th century, the city began to flourish as a naval port
and ship-building center, famously being the birthplace of the Titanic. Perhaps the most famous period of Belfast’s
history, however, is its most tragic – a period of
political conflict spanning three decades. And the city still has plenty of reminders
of the troubles, in particular the striking and sometimes intimidating
murals depicting various events of the times. Belfast has plenty of traditional pubs were
visitors can enjoy a pint with the locals, and there are dozens of historic buildings,
hotels and old streets, most of which can be explored on foot.
