Day 6:

Belfast City Tour

Belfast - Cityhall Discover Belfast city and its City Hall, which has been described as a 'glorious Edwardian confection of a building'. Opened in 1906, it was built in Classical Renaissance style in Portland stone with a sumptuous interior lavished with three types of Italian marble. Its crowning features are the 173' high central dome with a whispering gallery and the grand central staircase.

Crown liquor Saloon
Have a drink in the Crown Liquor saloon, Belfast's famous bar. It is now a unique visual gem, a veritable masterpiece in bar architecture, which has the distinction of being known to millions all over the world.

Belfast Visit the Grand Opera House, over 100 years old. This beautiful Victorian theatre presents a diverse programme, spanning classic and modern drama, musical theatre, ballet, opera, comedy and music embracing all interest groups.

Admire world famous Belfast's Murals. Pictures of murals are often flashed around the world on news bulletins or used as a backdrop when interviewing people. They often depict the history and political views of both traditions and are a way of marking territory.

These Northern Ireland wall paintings often look intimidating but they have become as much of a tourist attraction as many of the regular attractions within Northern Ireland.

Third night in Belfast.
