OVERVIEW BELFAST DAY TRIP FROM DUBLIN
Drive just two hours north of Dublin, you end up in another vibrant city. Belfast – a city that sits in what is politically another country. Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom, and so in two hours you can enter a different jurisdiction so Pounds Sterling are needed for spending money. This Belfast day trip from Dublin will allow you to see the great sights of Belfast and other significant gems of the north. Historical and natural treasures await you!
Our guides are knowledgeable and full of stories about Northern Ireland and her history. Therefore you will learn about the history of rebellion, violence and the journey towards peace in the region. Also there are many more stories to tell about St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, great mountains and historical sites. If you’re lucky, they might even sing you a song.
First of all our guide will take you around west Belfast, home of the infamous Peace Wall, explaining its significance. The Republican museum is our next stop for an immersion into the history of the rebellion and the republican movement. . Then we head straight for the city center, allowing you the free time to look around, see some sights and have lunch (not included). Take some time to see the impressive City Hall or Belfast’s very own leaning tower.
Visit East Belfast where we find the birthplace of the ill fated, RMS Titanic. Explore one of Ireland’s most visited attractions “The Titanic Belfast” . Titanic Belfast extends over nine interactive galleries, with multiple dimensions to the exhibition, drawing together special effects, dark rides, full-scale reconstructions and innovative interactive features.
