5 Fun Things To Do In Belfast

Belfast is Northern Ireland's thriving capital. Dream Apartments have listed the most exciting activities in Belfast and beyond to ensure you have a wonderful time during your stay at one of our serviced apartments throughout the city. 

1) Visit Titanic Belfast

You'll learn everything there is to know about the ship's history and construction (the ship was built in Belfast). They've also replicated the movie's iconic stairway, which you can visit on Sundays for afternoon tea. This is something that should be on everyone's to-do list when visiting Belfast, you can book it here.

Titanic Belfast debuted in 2012 and is now one of Belfast's most popular tourist attractions. It is open throughout the year (apart from the 24th to the 26th of December)

Adults pay £18.50, while children pay £8. (under 5s go free). A student discount is also available.

2) Explore The History At Crumlin Road Gaol

This jail was founded in 1845 and served as a functional prison until 1996. It's an important aspect of the Northern Ireland conflict's history. During those 150 years, the Gaol has held suffragists, murderers, loyalists, and republican prisoners. It has seen escapes, executions, hunger strikes, and riots, as well as deaths, births, and weddings.

It's a must-see location in Belfast since it's bursting with history!

If you book online, it'll cost you £9 per adult (£12 if you pay at the door).

They conduct theme tours, notably during their horror evenings around Halloween.

3) Explore Parliament Buildings (Stormont)

The parliament building in Belfast is located at Stormont. The structure itself is stunning! It's free to visit, and it's a lovely climb to the top. Because it is located on top of a hill, it can be seen from many points in the city. After your stroll, you can stop by the coffee shop for a cup of tea or coffee, as well as a handmade bun or pastry.

4) Take A City Bus Tour And Visit The Murals

Belfast is steeped in a unique past. It's a significant piece of history that, despite best attempts, has yet to be entirely resolved. Take an open-top bus tour or a black taxi cab around Belfast to see all of the murals around the city.

You'll need a guide who can explain the significance of each painting, and you'll even get to see the iconic peace wall that formerly separated the two communities living in Northern Ireland. Belfast's history will captivate you and don't forget to ask a lot of questions.

You can arrange these tours through GetYourGuide, or you can spot the guys in red jackets advertising the tours in the city centre.

5) Take A Pub Crawl

We are not exaggerating when we state that Belfast boasts one of the finest nightlife scenes in Europe! Everyone will find something to their liking. Organising a pub crawl is the greatest way to see Belfast's nightlife.

You may book one through various companies that provide online tours, or you can organise your own.

If you opt to make your own, we recommend booking a table at one of the following pubs or clubs:
