    Pretty quiet town

    It was a nice town not as rough as everyone said it would be. All the bars and clubs close pretty early this could also possibly be due to the colder weather.

    Insider Tip:I would definitely hire a car, it's much cheaper than the tour and you can drive along the stunning coast line. Everything is pretty close so you can see a lot in only one day.

    Belfast and Titanic

    I strongly recommend this city to go to with your couple or with friends. Many enjoyable places and the incredible Titanic Museum are all around. Very good city to move by walk and people is kind and polite. They always try to help you if necessary. A bit expensive and food is not very good at all. Although I had a good weather, it is compulsory to wear clothes adapted to the rain.

    One day is quite enough to walk around and pass by the main touristic points. If you are looking for go through the history, would be good hire some city tour to be more involved about the facts and everything else. Strongly recommend take a day to go to Giants of Causeway.

    I only spent one night in Belfast but I enjoyed what I did have the time to see of the city. There is a lot of history here and an energy of a strong, vibrant people. I would recommend the Titanic Belfast Museum if you are stopping in Belfast for a visit. It is a brand new museum with TONS of cools things to offer, not just about the Titanic but also about Belfast and how important ship building is to the culture and history of the city. Great place!
