Belfast - a city on the up

I worked in Belfast for nearly 3 years and have seen it improve dramatically. The people are very warm and friendly, once you master the accent, and there is some very good nightlife surrounded by a country full of stunning scenery.

Essential reading

Before I head off anywhere I always like to be well informed and whilst this site is extremely useful I found that Silver Linings, by the former Times NI correspondant, Martin Fletcher gave me a great insight as to the nature of the place and peoples. He has also penned a book on the backwoods of america that would be a good read for those folk heading that way.

    Great Review... I am carrying out some research into tourist motivations to visit Belfast. I would really appreciate it if you could take five minutes to complete the questionnaire at the link below: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/P7G3JNL

    Good page Clive, I've picked up a few tips as I'm thinking of a visit in May. Will probably go BMI to City airport instead of Easyjet to Int'l. Cheers, Clive

    Thanks for the hotel advice, Clive. I've been to Bushmills & Giants Causeway once, and looking forward to do some more Antrim coast driving. : )
