    There are no signs at the border telling you you are now in the North or Republic. You will recognise it from all the "Money Changed Here" signs instead! Such bureaux de changes are reputed to be backed by the IRA... here is a pic of Belfast City Hall.

    Go to Belfast Zoo The animal collection of the Belfast Zoo has changed dramatically over the last few years, particularly since the redevelopment of the Zoo, a project that was completed nearly six years ago.

  • Murals

    Belfast Favorites

    See the Murals! Unfortunately I haven't been there yet but I bet it's the most exciting and interesting place in Belfast! Even though I would hate living around there and see tourists taking pictures all the time I guess! My fondest memory is when I said to my friends in Dublin 'I'm thinking about going to Belfast tomorrow' and they all said they'd...

  • Shopping

    Belfast Favorites

    go shopping. Yet again, this is a first point on a vt page, but shopping is very important,isn't it?!! The shops are a very important part of Belfast, and I have to admit that they are the reason for so many of my visits. The main shopping area is around Donegall Place, opposite the City Hall where you'll find shops like The Disney Store, Topshop,...

    Go and see an ice-hockey match! On Saturday 30th December 2000, I braved the snow and fog to see my first ever ice-hockey game at the new Odyssey Arena in Belfast. It was brilliant! The atmosphere was amazing, the players were fantastic, and I'd definitely go back. They played against the London Knights and of course won with a score of 4-1!! I...

    Been there a few days after Princess Diana died. There were flowers all around the townhall and people were queuing to sign the book of condolence. Very strange and unbelieveable. It made me realize that I was officially on British ground!

  • Land of loneliness and history yet...

    I have heard of Northern Ireland being a dangerous place since I was a young child and the media over here in Australia really did nothing to alter my view. Mind you when September 11 rolled around Northern Ireland seemed to take a back seat on news coverage on this side of the world. I really don't know enough to know if that was just a...

  • From Giant's Causeway to Donegal

    The Giant's Causeway is near the town of Bushmills and then Ballycastle is not too far away as well. Ballycastle usually has good Irish music frequently in the pubs, sessions as they're called. There's a youth hostel nearby in Whitepark bay. The Bushmill's Inn has a lovely pub and meals but it's expensive. The Distillers Arms won some type of award...

  • Northern Irish humour

    The many years of sectarian strife has bred a deep rich and dark sense of humour in the province.Two little stories may help to illustrate this :A visitor to Northern Ireland is questioned in a pub,"Are ye a protestant or a catholic ?"Not wishing to enter into any form of debate or cause any offence or indeed receive any hassle, he replied :"I'm a...

  • Getting a hold on the lingo

    It has to be said that the Northern Irish accent is not quite as easy on the ear as the lilting tones of someone from say Donegal or Galway.The Belfast accent inparticular has quite a hard edge to it. The best approximation I can suggest is the following :Clench your teeth creating a 10 millimeter gap between the upper and lower set and say with...

  • Torr Head

    Driving along the Antrim coast we took a detour to Torr Head, and we were rewarded with this view. The sunlight and the clouds were reflected by the sea and it looked like in a fairy tale.The coastline on the horizon is Scotland, and from the top of the hill it looks so close enough to swim over.

    Having White Island all for ourselves. White Island is a tiny slab of land in the middle of Lough Erne, and there is a wall with a row of probably pagan figures in a ruin there. For getting to White Island you need to go by ferry from the Castle Archdale Marina, and in spite of us arriving there about 30 min after the last boat had returned, they...
