Belfast, Northern Ireland's capital, is the birthplace of the RMS Titanic and was known as a major commercial and industrial centre throughout its modern history. Thriving as a merchant town, the docks were the heart of the city, importing and exporting goods from around the world.
From literary hero, C.S Lewis to sporting legend George Best, Belfast is a city steeped in a variety of history. This is evident at every turn in the city with its historical buildings and artist murals.

Belfast has a unique mix of culture, shopping, dining and music making it an attractive destination. Experience the city on one of the many open-top bus tours, visit the impessiveTitanic museum where you can relive the building of the infamous ship, or explore the City Hall where everyone is welcome for a free tour. 

Belfast truly comes alive at night. The bustling cobbled streets of the Cathedral Quarter offer a selection of bars and live music to entertain every taste, each bar is steeped in history making the Quarter a wonder to explore.


A pre- or post-conference visit to the Titanic Belfast museum is highly recommended. The Titanic Experience is the world’s most authentic retelling of the iconic story. The self-guided tour extends over nine interactive galleries where you discover the sights, sounds, smells and stories of the ship, as well as the people and city that made her.

Belfast is the starting point for the Causeway Coastal Route, a scenic road trip visiting some of the most beautiful locations on the North coast. Travel through the glens of Antrim to the iconic Giants Causeway, home of the giants.

Northern Ireland is the Home of Thrones. The popular TV series Game of Thrones® was filmed in Belfast and across Northern Ireland. Our rugged coast lines, historic castles and breathtaking scenery are the perfect setting for this epic story. Explore the filming locations, visit The Dark Hedges with one of the Game of Thrones tours
