What to see in do in a day in Belfast

by sparkieplug24

Hi we will be in belfast on 14 April 2007 and were looking for some ideas on what to see and do while there. We are a mixed age group of two pensioners a 17 year old a 27 year old and a child of 6. We all like history and buildings of interest etc. Also is there any places of interest that would be particularly interesting to a 6 year old although I sometimes think she is only happy when spending money. Someone has suggested that we take a trip out to the Giants causeway which we may consider but we are on a bit of a tight budget with this trip unfortunately. We will be in Blefast for around 14 hours.

I'd take one of the bus tours, have a look around the City Hall then head across the Lagan to the Odyssey to take the 6 year old to see W5, if you don't all fancy going in then there are plenty of cafes to while the time away in.

Also I meant to ask in my earlier post anyone any idea how far from were the boat docks to the city centre. Also how easy is it to get to the zoo because the 6 year old with a little help from the 17 year old has spotted that there is a zoo and quite fancies going there.

Most ferries have a free bus service for foot passengers into the city centre, check with the operators website for information (P&O, Stena or Norsemerchant).

I never visited the zoo but their website details which buses to use to get there.

Thanks for your help on this. Its actually a cruise ship we will be on but I am asuming they will dock around the same place as the ferries.

lf anybody is planing a trip to Belfast the best way to get around the sights is by tour bus www.belfastbustours.com www.belfastsightseeingtours.com But if you want adventure and find the hidden treasure's of the last 35 years.l would choose a taxi tour www.belfastblacktaxitours.com www.belfastsightseeingtaxitours.com we loved the murals on the walls,this place must be the biggest art gallery in the world.

Travel Tips for Belfast

Crawfordsburn Country Park

by clivedinburgh

This park is just outside Bangor on the south side of Belfast Lough. There are some great walks around the park or you could take the coastal path back to Bangor. There is ample car parking and several picnic areas that are popular at weekends with most folk bringing their own BBQ. There is a cafe and visitors centre with toilet facilities. I used to enjoy heading here with a good book to relax and enjoy the view across the sea to Scotland.

In a Bit of a Stew

by St_Vincent about Bittles Bar

Bittles is a traditional laid back Irish bar and on reflection one of my favourites in Belfast. It’s very small being at the tip of an iron shaped building but there’s plenty of character packed in. The landlord John was always buzzing around chatting to customers recommending beers and making sure everyone, locals and visitors alike, were OK. There is no cask ale but they do have a range of bottled beers including many from local breweries - try Molly’s Chocolate Stout or Headless Dog from the College Green Brewery. They also serve an excellent Irish Stew that is good value for money. The split level bar has an arty theme with paintings and drawings of famous Irishmen by local artists.

Beat The Clock

by Bilimari about Benedicts

This place is a part of the Benedict's Hotel, and there is a pub below the restaurant.

They had a special promotion called "Beat The Clock". It runs 7 days a week from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The time you order is the price you pay. We ordered right at 5:30pm, which means the price of our meal was just 5.50/each!

Note that not all dishes are part of the promotion. Look for a clock symbol on the menu. I had Duck with mashed potato. (See photo.)
The portion was very big, but it was so tasty, I finished it!

The Festival of Fools

by scanos

Every April, starting in 2004, as part of the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival, Belfast hosts the Festival of Fools. Belfast invites fools from all over the world to bemuse the population.

This year there were artists from Japan, India, USA, Canada, Australia, Sardinia, Holland, Denmark, UK and Ireland. Activities ranged from an authentic Rajisthani Folk Dance alongside Mohicaned Japanese mime artists, next to silent slapstick clowns together with acrobats.

All the shows are free and attract a huge range of tourists and locals, particulraly around the Bank Holiday weekend. There are lots of great bars - or embibing emporiums - in the Cathedral Quarter to nip into between shows.

This year the festival ran from Thursday 27th April through til 7 o’clock on Monday 1st May.

The Entries (2)

by suvanki

The next entry that I came across was Crown Entry, although I missed an info board on this passageway (if there is one)

I've since found out that at Number 12 Crown entry lived Robert and Daniel Read, who were to become the owners of The Belfast Morning News. Robert started the family letterpress printing establishment here around 1840. They later owned No 6 and 10 Crown Entry
CLICK HERE for more info
They also donated money (£20)to help establish the Caholic Cathedral of St Peters on the Falls Road.

In April 1936, an incident occurred, at the Criobh Ruadh Social Club at No 10 Crown Entry (a place that was now used for Irish dancing classes and billiards),which was to be known as The Crown Entry Affair - The Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) raided the building, following a tip off. Thirteen prominent IRA leaders were arrested, during an IRA court Marshall session, and were taken to Crumlin Road Jail. This was to have a devastating effect on the IRA at this tine

The prominent building in Crown Entry now is one Of Paddy Power's betting shops (Bookmakers)
