Belfast derives its name from the gaelic 'Béal Feiriste' ie the mouth of the Farset, a river that flows through Belfast. It is one of Europe's favourite city break destinations, with an increasing number of visitors from every corner of the world.

If you get an opportunity to visit Belfast you could check out its many attractions including Belfast Opera House, Belfast Zoo, Belvoir Forest Park and the Botanic Gardens.

Attractions such as the cosmopolitan charms of the Queen's Quarter, the waterfront development of the Titanic Quarter and the cultural diversity of the Gaeltacht Quarter in Belfast are to be enjoyed while staying in a Belfast city hotel.

When you are exploring Belfast city centre itself, do not forget about travelling further to explore the many attractions just outside the city. Open and compact, with acres of idyllic parkland, Belfast could not be easier to get around and explore on foot. Visitors to the city can enjoy magnificent visitor attractions, award-winning restaurants, a range of superb hotels, from budget to luxurious boutique, and a number of fascinating tours by bus, taxi, foot and boat.

The Titanic Made in Belfast Festival, Belfast City Marathon and Belfast City Carnival are major events that take place in Belfast city each year.
