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 Pound Sterling is 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 its 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, 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.
After the Titanic Museum we'll have lunch, followed by a quick visit to the Republican museum. You'll then be brought for an interesting political taxi tour of the Falls Road and Shankill Road. This was one of the most affected areas of Belfast during The Troubles, which led to the construction of the Peace Wall to keep Republican and Unionist factions apart.
Take some free time to explore Belfast city centre and visit some of Belfast’s famous sites before returning to Dublin.
