BELFAST TICKS ALL THE BOXES FOR A WEEKEND AWAY

We headed north in August for a wonderful weekend in Belfast.  Can't believe I left it this long to visit.... I found a proud and friendly city with a great sense of humour.

My travel piece appeared in the Irish Examiner last weekend and you can read it here.

Here is a short photo essay of our time in the city which I thought you might enjoy too.....



The SS Nomad - tender to SS Titanic


Lovely spot for lunch just across from Titanic - Cast & Crew




A cool spot for dinner.... HADSKIS



BELFAST AT NIGHT..... 





The wonderful St Georges Market



Hours of gorgeous browsing



LIVE MUSIC

 AND LOTS OF COLOUR


THE VIEW OVER THE CITY FROM THE DOME AT VICTORIA SQUARE 



HOTEL CHOCOLAT.......  



CRUMLIN ROAD GAOL



NOT GEORGE BEST.... SOME FELLA CALLED CARSON



NOT ALL MURALS ARE POLITICAL



HIGHLY RECOMMEND A TAXI TOUR... WE TOOK ONE WITH VALUE CABS.  Excellent


SIGNING THE PEACE WALL... AND UNDERSTAND A LITTLE MORE OF OUR HISTORY
