Belfast is the capital city of Northern Ireland and it is a modern yet historical place with many attractions and points of interest...
The Titanic Quarter, with a new museum opened to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the tragedy, is popular. You can't escape the famous ship and the shipbuilding history of this city, with many references to the SS Titanic across the city. The museum itself is well worth visiting, not only for its architecture but also for the superb contents of the building and the story of Belfast that it tells.
Belfast Zoo and the Botanic Gardens are great for those who like to stay close to nature Belfast Castle, the Ulster Museum, Victoria Square, Stormont and the Harland & Wolff shipyards are all worth seeing for those who want to learn a little more about the history of Belfast and the wider area. All in all, Belfast is a versatile destination with something for everyone.
Flights to Belfast are available throughout the UK and will take you to either Belfast City Airport (BHD) or Belfast International Airport (BFS). However, when it comes to getting around, Belfast car hire is by far your best bet. You can arrange it at the airport and this is the best way to ensure you get your holiday started as soon as you arrive.
Getting out of the city makes for a great day out and is easy to organise when you hire a car in Belfast...
If nature and natural phenomena are of interest and you've taken advantage of car hire in Belfast, then you can't come this far without venturing a few miles out to see the Giant's Causeway.
The equally exciting city of Derry is also within easy reach if you have a hire car.
