Info about Belfast

Area:
115 km2
Overview

Belfast is a beautiful city on the north-west coast of Northern Ireland. The sad legacy with the bloody war between Catholics and Protestants seems to have finally been broken by ongoing peace negotiations between the two camps and Belfast’s reputation as an important city of Europe is growing rapidly.
Belfast is in a fine setting, surrounded by high hills, river valleys and the sea. It has much in common with other breezy cities across the Irish Sea such as Manchester and Liverpool.
It dates back to the middle Ages and though it was bombed severely in the Great War, it has maintained much of its great heritage. Belfast’s reputation grew rapidly in the 19th century industrial revolution in Ulster and there are still a lot of impressive buildings from that era. The development of industries like linen, rope making and shipbuilding dramatically increased the size of the town. The world's largest dry dock is here and the shipyard's giant cranes tower over the port.
Today much of the city centre is pedestrian, with benches where you can sit and listen to street musicians. There are various lavish Victorian and Edwardian buildings with elaborate sculptures over doors and windows.

Overall Guide : Belfast boasts a massive arts festival, the new Odyssey Complex, the Ulster Museum in the Botanic Gardens, with perhaps the best-known collection of gold and silver jewellery recovered by divers in 1968 from the Spanish Armada treasure ... more ship Girona, wrecked off the Giant's Causeway in 1588. The Linen Hall Library, located near the City Hall, was made in 1788 and has an important Irish collection of over 20,000 volumes, with a special section on Robert Burns. The conservationist National Trust has recently restored the Crown Liquor Saloon, Belfast’s most famous pub, which was once a railway hotel. Belfast has many art galleries such as St Anne’s Cathedral for example, covered arcades with souvenirs of Irish linen, pottery and hand-cut crystal and a well-organized Grand Opera House. There are beautiful botanic gardens. Belfast Zoo is in a picturesque mountain park high above the city. Belfast is where the Titanic was built and a visit to the historic Harbour Office at the Port is most recommended. Also worth seeing is the City Hall, built around 1903 in the grand Classical Renaissance style, with beautiful Italian marble interior. . The southern part of the city is good for moderately priced restaurants, pubs, accommodation, shopping and theatrical shows. Some of Belfast's grandest buildings are banks. The interior of the Ulster Bank (1860), for example, is as spectacular as a Venetian palace.

Overall Guide : I am an Australian woman, 73, married to a Northern Irishman, living in Australia. We have had 2 trips to Belfast in the last 5 years and it is now one of my favourite cities. I love Belfast, even in... more the winter! I feel safe and at home there and enjoy the shops, pubs, parks, museums, river walk ways, churches, library, music - just about everything. Belfast is an attractive city, not too big, not too small, not too noisy. Everyone I've met is friendly and helpful. I hope to visit again before Christmas and greatly look forward to it. Thank you Belfast!
