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.

Coffee Bars are springing up daily, I like going to "The Streat" in the Odyssey for good 15's or dropping into Clements or The Apartment in town, sit upstairs for good views of the City Hall.
Cafe Aero at is nice cut through Boots or The Arcade on Royal Avenue and it's in that Street.
I have to let you know this important info, because there is a distinct lack of Public Toilets in Belfast. When you got to go, you got to go.
So if you are in the City Centre. The Store Marks and Spencer at The start of Royal Avenue has toilets at the top of the store for customers. Also in Castle Court there are public toilets, these are normally in a queue situation, so duck into Debenhams dept store on the first floor at the back. Or of course Cafes, Mc Donalds... will be an option. The Odyssey Complex that I have mentioned before has good facilities.
Quite a lot of Public telephones around.
Favorite thing: 1stly Northern Ireland is Part of the United Kingdom (ENGLAND,SCOTLAND,WALES,NORTHERN IRELAND =UK) NOT Ireland so you will be going to the wrong embassy if you try and get a visa for Northern Ireland at the Irish embassy you will need to go to a British Embassy near you (www.ukvisas.gov.uk) and www.fco.gov.uk will tell you where your nearest UK Embassy/Consul .
Possibly our most famous visitors in recent years have been Bill and Hillary Clinton. Both have taken an enormous interest in Ireland and we are genuinely indebted to Bill Clinton for bringing world focus to Northern Ireland and helping to resolve many of the impasses that our infantile local politicians found insurmountable for decades.
The Clintons are pictured here in a visit to a local school. The visit was memorable to say the least...
Ulster Museum & W5
Fondest memory: It's been 18 months since I first started going to Belfast. Northern Ireland is my son's new home and we really enjoy all the things at W5 (at the Odyssey complex) and at the Ulster Museum next to Queen's University. I've found that city transport is excellent to UM, not so good to W5, but that's walkable from the city centre anyway. I'm looking forward to seeing more of Ulster in the future.
Favorite thing: daft as it is, I had a wee chuckle at this "Keep calm..." mug that was in a display of memorabilia in the Titanic museum and loved all the old movie & advertising posters
