Make a long weekend of it with our deals on Belfast hotels
This revitalised city has put 'the troubles' behind it...
Flex your credit card at the designer stores in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter and before you know it you've lost half a day to the shop-a-thon that would put the average spray-tanned WAG to shame.
It's been quite a transformation for the once-dour northern Irish city - swish gastropubs now nestle alongside comfortable old boozers and cheap but high-quality grub, particularly seafood, is a city-wide speciality. On the music menu, in their respective nightspots indie, techno and that traditional fiddle music all abound.
Hotels in Belfast range from boutique hideaways hung with hand-flocked wallpaper to old-fashioned guesthouses and no-nonsense crash-pads for business trips.
For the Guinness you know and the city you don't, don't miss Belfast.
