The Tollymore Park Gate in Belfast, Northern Ireland
A REVOLUTIONARY CITY

Cruise to Belfast, Northern Ireland

Belfast is a thriving, fast-growing metropolitan center that's full of surprises. The city played a key role in the 19th century's Industrial Revolution, when it was the world's biggest linen producer. It also had a reputation for ship-building — the Titanic was built here. Learn more about this claim to fame when you visit the Titanic Quarter and the city's Titanic Belfast attraction. Then, grab lunch on the terrace overlooking Edwardian City Hall, one of the best examples of Belfast's great architecture. Ireland cruises offer you the opportunity to walk among exotic trees in the botanical garden, and reinvent your idea of Irish cuisine at one of the city's upscale, seafood-focused eateries.
