A vibrant and rejuvenated city nestled between hills and the sea...
- When the RMS Titanic sailed from Belfast’s Harland and Wolff shipyard in 1912, few could imagine the legacy this tragic ship would leave its home port. With the opening of the Titanic Quarter in 2012 and Belfast Waterfront’s £30million extension in 2016, the legacy was complete and a new era for Northern Ireland and its capital city began.
- The enormous investment in Belfast Waterfront has transformed Belfast’s event product into a 21st century success, opening a host of opportunities for business event planners, with a 7000sqm convention centre, capacity to seat 2,200 delegates theatre-style and a newly developed infrastructure, including hotels, venues, restaurants and attractions.
- Belfast is an intriguing and exciting city nestled between hills and the sea. It’s rejuvenation into a vibrant and modern hub, shrouds a deep current of history that’s full of hidden gems and warm hospitality. The city offers Michelin-starred restaurants, interactive galleries and museums, cosy pubs and quality accommodation. Local entertainment, brings the many engaging experiences Belfast offers to life, and provides a flavour of the city’s culture.
