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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Ulster Museum and SS Nomadic. You'll discover tucked-away gems like RSPB Belfast's Window on Wildlife and Royal Ulster Constabulary George Cross Foundation Memorial Garden. Change things up with a short trip to Mount Stewart in Newtownards (about 36 minutes away). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Titanic Belfast, have fun and explore at W5, admire the masterpieces at Ulster Folk & Transport Museum, and get a sense of history and politics at Parliament Buildings.

To see maps, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, read Belfast day trip planning tool .

Getting from Portrush to Belfast by car takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: take a train. In July, daytime highs in Belfast are 22°C, while nighttime lows are 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 25th (Thu) to allow time for travel back home.
