If you’d rather see what lies outside the city, take a shore excursion to Northern Ireland’s most famous natural attraction, the Giant’s Causeway.
How to Get to Belfast
You’ll dock in Belfast Harbour, a couple of miles north of the city center. There’s not much around the port, so take one of the free shuttles into downtown. If you want to visit the Titanic Quarter, note that while it’s located in the port area, it’s not walkable, so your best bet is to take a cab.
One Day in Belfast
Start in the Titanic Quarter, a waterfront historical and entertainment district dedicated to Belfast’s role in the Titanic’s tragic story. Your main destination here is the striking Titanic Belfast building and its Titanic Experience, an interactive museum where exhibits explain the ship’s entire history, from its creation to the aftermath of the sinking. Then check out the Titanic’s dock and pump-house, where the ship sat on dry land, before taking a cab into downtown Belfast.
Belfast’s small city center is great for pedestrians, but before you begin walking, sit down for some lunch and a drink at one of the many cozy pubs. When you’re ready to explore, take yourself on a walking tour past historical sites like City Hall and St Anne’s Cathedral.
Finish up with another drink (you are in the UK, after all) at the famous Crown Liquor Saloon.
