Holidaymakers are invited to hop on an open top bus and see the sights of lively Belfast from a different perspective. The tour covers attractions such as Belfast Castle, Stormont buildings, as well as the Crumlin Road jail. While on the bus participants can learn more about the history of the city and get a comprehensive look at its districts. Guests will be accommodated in a newly-refurbished modern-style boutique hotel, set just a few minutes from the spot where the tour bus stops.
Please note that the Hop-On Hop-Off tour ticket can be used any time (not necessarily during the hotel stay), and once validated, it is valid for 72 hours.
Groupon’s Guide To Belfast
Known as the economic engine of Northern Ireland, Belfast is a cosmopolitan city combining a rich heritage with contemporary perks. Once home to the Irish linen industry and the famous Harland and Wolff shipbuilders, Belfast is one of the most visited cities in Europe, boasting over 8 million visitors every year.
Guests can get a breath of fresh air with a stroll through the large number of parks and open spaces, while history enthusiasts may visit several historic sites, such as the 19th-century Albert Memorial Clock or the famous Stormont Castle, the main meeting place of the country’s Executive. A short walk from The River Lagan and the Waterfront Hall, shoppers may find plenty of opportunities to buy traditional Irish products at St George’s Market, the last surviving Victorian covered market in Belfast. Dining options are enriched by traditional bars where guests may enjoy the local ales and wines, while the restaurants offer a wide variety of Irish specialties, including the well-known Irish stew, a famous dish dating back to the 19th century, made from lamb or mutton as well as potatoes, onions, and parsley.
