From Titanic museums to world-class film festivals, Belfast surprises as much as it dazzles. Northern Ireland’s capital has a remarkable energy that you can’t help but be swept away with on Belfast cruises. It’s best soaked up in the Cathedral Quarter, which is brimming with modern bars, traditional pubs and music venues. It’s also where you can sample Belfast’s thriving food and drink scene – check out one of the many craft gin distilleries and breweries. Once you’ve satisfied your appetite, head to the Titanic Quarter, named after the ill-fated ocean liner. The awe-inspiring centrepiece is the museum, housed within a striking, star-shaped building. Take the pace down a notch or two by visiting the Botanic Gardens in the Queen’s Quarter. Don’t miss the glass Palm House, which was built in the mid-19th century, or the Tropical Ravine greenhouse. Get a further taster of Belfast’s history at the Ulster Museum, before heading over to Cave Hill Country Park – from the summit of Cave Hill, you’ll be treated to sprawling vistas of this diverse and unpredictable city. Nearby you’ll find Belfast Castle, which was built back in 1870 and sits 400 feet above sea level. From here, you’ll be able to see the twinkling waters of Belfast Lough.
