About Belfast

Belfast blossomed from very humble beginnings. It started out as a small hamlet with fertile land along the mouth of the Lagan. Soon, marauders and pirates realised our lough was deep and our shores were safe from the north Atlantic storms. The perfect haven for repairing sea ravaged ships. From these early stages the industrious locals developed a boat building trade. And the rest is our history.

So what’s Belfast like today? Well, it’s packed with history, culture, exciting events, great food, super shopping… you might even spot a ship or two. You’ll also find some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.

In Belfast, the community go that extra mile to make sure you have a memorable visit. They have some of the best nightclubs, superb shopping and enough eateries to satisfy every taste and budget. There’s also no shortage of local and international artists and bands that stop by to perform at fantastic venues like the ICC Belfast and the world class Odyssey Arena. You’ll also find fascinating walking, bus and taxi tours, cultural escapes, scientific exhibitions and literary inspirations. After all, this is the city that inspired the Chronicles of Narnia and Gulliver’s Travels, and let’s not forget it’s the land of Game of Thrones!
