A visit to Belfast would not be complete without exploring the Titanic Quarter, where the famous ship was built. The Belfast Museum also has an exhibition to honour the 100-year anniversary of the ship's voyage. Afterwards, you can take a walk along the scenic Belfast Docks and take in the stunning views. The city also offers markets and great shopping as well as museums and the Peace Walls. No visit is complete without a trip to the Crumlin Road gaol.

The city of Omagh draws in many tourists. One of the main attractions is the Ulster American Folk Park, which has exhibits about the Irish people who immigrated to the USA during the 18th and 19th centuries.
