A Capital Reborn

For much of the 20th century, Belfast was marred by the armed conflict known locally as The Troubles. However, decades of peace have allowed the capital to reinvent itself, reemerging as a one-of-a-kind hotspot for travellers keen on exploring one of Europe’s most seminal cities. From the shipyard that built the Titanic to the city’s role in the industrial revolution and the Northern Ireland Conflict, Belfast has been central to some of the most interesting twists and turns of modern history.

A trip to Belfast also sets the outdoorsman in you up for the experience of a lifetime. Nearby, dramatic coastlines, enchanting forests and hillside castles make for stunning, picture-perfect outings. However, no visit is complete without a day trip to the Giant’s Causeway: a stunning, hexagonal rock formation on the northern coast. In short, Belfast is sure to leave a lasting impression on anyone lucky enough to visit this unique capital.
