IN A NUTSHELL

WHERE: Northern Ireland.
WHY: Visit this undiscovered delight in Northern Ireland.
WHEN: Any time of year, but the summers are certainly the best time to enjoy the city and its environs.

IF YOU LIKE THIS... Then you should check out Ludwigsburg.  Stately buildings?  Check.  Pedestrian districts?  Check.  Nightlife?  Check.  Still hidden away from masses of tourists?  Check.

Belfast is the capital and largest city in Northern Ireland.  This capital is an up-and-coming city, having risen in popularity as a tourist destination in the decade-plus since the Good Friday Agreement of 1998.  It is now the fourth most visited weekend destination in all of the United Kingdom and provides a great way for weekenders from all around Western Europe to experience a taste of Irish culture.

Belfast remains relatively uncrowded, as compared to its better known partner of Dublin.  And it is a prettier city than it's Republic counterpart: the center of Belfast is small enough to explore on foot, and here you can wander through stately Victorian buildings and a pedestrian shopping district. 

 

 

 
 

Belfast also offers a great nightlife, especially in the pubs and clubs around Queen's University.  When in Belfast, don't forget to visit "The Bot," as the locals refer to the hugely popular Botanical Inn (23-27 Malone Rd).  This splendid pub / sports bar features live music and friendly people, and also has an upstairs club area.  It is a fresh twist on the age-old Irish pub, modern yet still holds on to that comfortable Irish charm.
