Although one place we do recommend if in Belfast is the Duke of York. It’s a traditional Belfast bar that’s jam packed full of culture and amazing décor for an unforgettable night out. Snow Patrol even had their first gig there back in 1998. Whether you just want to stop for a quick drink or spend the night with the locals, the Duke of York is the most perfect place to truly experience the traditional Irish pub atmosphere. If you want to take the party elsewhere then try El Divino which sits on the bank of the River Lagan.

Getting Around Belfast
When traveling to Belfast there’s a variety of different approaches due to it being in the North West of the UK. You can of course travel by plane which is by far the easiest option and land at Belfast International Airport or you could go by sea. There are plenty of ferry terminals paired with a train ticket for when you land in Ireland you can simply board the train to your final destination. And you can go by land if taking your car is an option which would be an advantage if you wanted to avoid the use of taxis. When you’re in Belfast we suggest using either a taxi bus or train for when traveling although some places are easily accessible by foot.
