More about Belfast
Belfast is comfortably the largest city in Northern Ireland, and serves as the administrative centre of the province, with a population in the city of around 290,000. The Port of Belfast is the major maritime terminal in Northern Ireland for both passengers and goods, handling two-thirds of the province's seafaring trade.
Belfast's poor reputation as a result of activities in the 1970s and 1980s in now firmly in this modern city's past. There is plenty to see and do, and accommodation ranges from simple guest houses to exclusive, five-star-plus hotels.
The focus of the city centre is on Donegall Square, with Belfast City Hall at the centre. There are plenty of streets that lead off from this focal point, all lined with shops and restaurants matching all possible descriptions. Belfast also has plenty of night-life, with city centre pubs staying open until 1am, and clubs typically a hour or so later, although alcohol is not served after 1am.
Aside from the impressive City Hall, any tour of Belfast should also take in Saint Anne's Cathedral, Queen's University, the Botanical Gardens and the Ulster Museum. Belfast Zoo is also worth a visit, particularly to see the prairie dogs whose exploration tunnels extend right throughout the Zoo park.#
