Belfast, Dublin and the Titanic ExhibitionBook Now
Culture, history and super-friendly people are what Belfast is all about. Visit here and you'll experience a place unlike any other in Europe. This is a city that can trace its history back to the Bronze Age; a city that built Titanic; a city forging a unique food scene; and a city that dances to its own beat. From its mighty shipbuilding past to the dynamic arts scene that swirls around the Cathedral Quarter, Belfast likes to mix it up.

Door to door pick up from our large Lincolnshire Area
We depart Lincolnshire to meet the ferry at Holyhead. Your driver will ensure comfort stops are made on the way to the overnight hotel situated in Stillorgan. On arrival you will be able to relax before your evening meal is served.
After your full Irish breakfast, we depart your hotel for a trip into Dublin. Maybe visit Temple Bar with its famous pub or for those fans of the Irish nectar the Guiness Experience is not far from the centre and is easily accessible by taxi. You may wish to shop in the various high street stores for those iconic Irish trinkets. We then travel on to the outskirts of Belfast to check in at our main hotel. On arrival you will have time to relax whilst your cases are being taken to your room.
This morning we will take you up to the Giants Causeway. The moment your eyes fall on the 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns, sliding into the sea like dark stone steps into bubbling foamy waves, is a jaw-dropping one. You're going to want to high-five nature, call your old geology teacher to say "you were right, rocks CAN be awesome!" and pull out your camera all at the same time. This afternoon we will drop you into the centre of Belfast for time at your leisure. There is so much history here for you to explore. Pointing to the city's maritime history, the symbol of a seahorse has strong connections with Belfast. Early merchants printed the creature on their coins throughout the 17th Century, and two seahorses still feature on Belfast's coat of arms. You'll also spot seahorses around the city, including the seahorse sculpture at Belfast's port and the glowing seahorse logo on the side of the lofty Grand Central Hotel.
This morning we visit Belfast for a half day guided tour. Learn about the history and culture of Belfast from your informative guide. Then we have included a visit to the Titanic museum for a guided tour. Rising like an incredible shimmering ship near the waters of Belfast Lough, Titanic Belfast has been named the World's Leading Tourist Attraction at the World Travel Awards. This majestic building stands on the very site where Titanic was built, and boasts nine galleries covering everything from Belfast's shipbuilding heritage to the discovery of the wreck.
Today is free to spend in Belfast. You could maybe visit the Linen Library. Housed in a listed Victorian linen building, Linen Hall Library has an incredible 232 years of history. Founded in 1788, it's the oldest library in Belfast and famous for its Irish and genealogy collections. The library's oldest book is De Anima (1490) written by the Eastern physician, Avicenna, about health and wellbeing. It also has a first edition copy of James Joyce's Ulysses in its collection, and the first printing of the American Declaration of Independence outside of America. We will depart for your overnight hotel this afternoon.
A very early start begins your return journey to Lincolnshire. Your breakfast will be served on the ferry and as you disembark your driver will ensure comfort stops are made on your way back.
