1. I would suggest late Spring/Summer, late May to August. The weather and temperatures, as anywhere in the UK (and the republic of Ireland), will still be changeable (within each day as well as day to day) but temperatures are likely to be more pleasant during those months. Don't expect heat or days of sunshine; you may be lucky, but it is more likely that you will not be!

2 There are a variety of hotels and b&bs in central Belfast, which is probably the easiest place to base yourself. It is a small city and the centre is very walkable, with plenty of restaurants etc. I stayed at the Premier Inn, which had a very good deal at the time and was very pleasant indeed. I booked through www.booking.com which is reliable site with honest guest reviews and good mapping: I suggest you look there for accommodation.

3. My Belfast pages http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/73696/4d6e4/ and the Vt Belfast travel guide (use the searchbox top right of this page) have tips on what to see and do.

One thing I strongly recommend is a bus tour which will allow you a good view of the murals in various parts of the city and help you to understand a little of why the Troubles occurred, and their effects of the people of Belfast. there are several companies but I chose:

and would highly recommend it.

You can also take an official black taxi tour of the city:

4. As long as you want, but I would suggest a minimum of 2 full days for each city.

5. Of course, as long as you meet the requirements for entry to the UK and to the Republic of Ireland. There are no additional rules.

When you first arrive in either the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland you will go through passport control as normal but you will not need to show your passport when you travel over the border between the Republic and N Ireland.

Travel Tips for Belfast

Tourist Information Centre

One of your first stops for tourist information in Belfast should be the Belfast Welcome Centre at 47 Donegall Place just off Donegall Square North near the City Hall. You can pick up city maps, bus timetables plus get information about tours and local visitor attractions. You can also find out about some of Belfast's historic pubs and bars. There are also Belfast Welcome Centre desks at both airports.

Peace and tranquility

by Catspjm

On a slightly more serious note Belvoir (Pronounced 'Beaver') Forest is one of Belfast?s best kept secret. Just 6 km from the City Centre Belvoir Park forest is a working forest within a city. It is ideally placed to offer city dwellers and those from further a field a vibrant forest teaming with wildlife and many fine tree specimens within easy reach of Belfast's outer ring. It covers 94 hectares and runs along the south bank of the River Lagan.
There are a number of historic sites to be found within the forest, for example the Norman motte dates back to the 12th century and the ruined graveyard was recorded in 14th century documents. The estate itself was enclosed by the Hill's, a plantation family, around the 1740's. They built a house where the car park is now and the existing buildings, which date from the same era, were farm buildings belonging to the estate. The Ice House, built into the side of the motte also dates from this time.
All in all a great way to spend an afternoon, especially if you are blessed with a glint of sunshine.

Footnote.
Officially the last wolf in Ireland was shot in 1786. Rumors still abound however. Visit the part at dusk, close your eyes, strain your ears and sometimes in the distance...

The Apartment

by kranstonakov about Apartment

The apartment is a botanic-inns owned operation so don't expect too much originality. It is however a place where the standards very rarely slip and if you order from the extensive cocktail list you won't be dissapointed. the apartment does food and coffees during the day, and at night its good place to pick up rish chicks or network with wannabe bigshots. Its right smack bang in th middle of town with huge glass windows overlooking city hall. Its nice if yo're a tourist, especially as a starting point, and you can alswyas get a taxi easily from here. over 21 and you need to be smart. Shirt and Shoes at the weekend is recommended

big tall burgers on a stick!!

by catherineneill about Gourmet Burger (bank)

Situated on the Belmont road in east belfast, Gourmet Burger is an interesting restaurant in a converted former Ulster Bank building. Big sturdy wooden tables, excellent pastries and a varied menu of, yes you've guessed it, burgers!! And they are really really tall burgers!! Reasonably priced and really friendly staff. any burger is gooooood

The Irish sea

by Catspjm

Due to careful patrolling by the marine life immigration service and the rise in demand for both canned and fresh shark meat, we now loose well under 300 surfers a year to shark attacks in the costal waters around Belfast.
