Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for Belfast, Northern Ireland!
Northern Ireland's Belfast -- where the doomed Titanic was built -- has calmed down after a 1994 cease-fire following decades of violence among Catholics and Protestants. Titanic Quarter, the largest waterfront project in Europe, mixing residential, educational, business, and leisure enterprise, promises to bring economic buzz to rival the many historic ships built on Belfast shipyard site. Catering to a resurgence in tourism, Victorian buildings lining city center roadways now house fashionable hotels, restaurants, and bars instead of cigarette factories and linen mills of old. Great Victoria Street's Crown Liquor Saloon, with an Internet web-cam operating in a gas-lit bar, is among the city's best known landmarks. Bailey's historical pub walking tours are popular in Belfast. For repentence at a one-a-day pace, it would take more than a year to visit all the churches around town. The oldest, built in 1737 by Richard Cassels on Church Road, is the Church of Ireland Knockbreda Parish Church, embellished by 18th century tombs. Built in 1783, the First Presbyterian Church on Rosemary Street hosts noontime concerts. Built in 1816, the Church of Ireland's St. George's features a Georgian portico. Serving seafarers since 1857, the Presbyterian Sinclair Seamen's Church has a pulpit shaped like a ship's prow, a bell from the HMS Hood sunk in 1916, and lifeboat-shaped collection plates.
Built in 1866, St. Peter's Cathedral dominates Belfast's western skyline. Attractions vary from the Belfast City Hall on Donegall Square and the Ulster Museum for archaeology, art, and natural sciences to the Whowhatwherewhenwhy - W5, Ireland's first purpose-built interactive centre for families. Queen's University offers exhibitions and a shop for gifts. Shoppers flock to Lisburn Road, High Street, Royal Avenue, Donegall Place and connecting byways. St. George's Market (Ireland's oldest covered market) marks Fridays with 23 seafood stalls. Junction One International Outlet Centre, 20 miles from Belfast City Centre, features more than 50 outlets including Next, Marks and Spencer, Nike, Adidas and Reebok, along with catering Starbucks and Rain City. Dining options range from traditional Irish pub grub to Asian delights. Touring by boat, open-top bus or by bicycle showcases the city's best. Some Belfast tours pass by the city's wall murals in blue-collar areas where Catholics and Protestants have expressed themselves over time with themes of oppression, freedom, and Gaelic slogans such as "Tiocfaidh ar la" -- (Our Day Will Come). Belfast accommodations range from guesthouses to hotels from budget to cosmopolitan.
