A city with character, Belfast remains a great place for a leisurely exploration, as it is still relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists, who usually opt to visit Dublin instead.
Visit Crumlin Road Gaol and Belfast Castle for their historical value. Get outdoors at RSPB Belfast's Window on Wildlife and Belvoir Park Golf Club. Next up on the itinerary: learn about all things military at Royal Ulster Rifles Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Patricks Church, get a new perspective on nature at Ulster Museum, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Cathedral Quarter.
