Your guide will take you first around West Belfast, the home of the famous ( or infamous ) Peace Wall. Around 10:30am, you will drive around West Belfast, which is comprised of 'Loyalists' (allegiance to the Queen) on one side and Republicans(those who want a united Ireland) on the other. Your guide will show you the dividing wall called 'The Peace Wall' - a wall forcing peace by separation. Next, you will head towards East Belfast to visit the Harland and Wolff shipyard, one of the biggest in the U.K. in its time. Many ships were launched from this yard, most famously the Titanic!
Around 12:00pm( noon) you'll have worked up a hunger by now so your guide will drop you into the city centre for some free time and to grab a bit to eat (own expense). There are lots of things to discover and explore in this vibrant city. Here are some suggestions –
• Visit the busiest and arguably the best bar in Belfast. The Victorian Crown Bar.
• Visit the Grand Opera house and visit St. Anne's cathedral.
• The Albert Memorial Clock, Belfast's own leaning clock tower.
• Visit one of the main landmark buildings in the city - Belfast City Hall.
After lunch at your own expense, your guide will take you to the HMS Caroline around 2:00pm. This is a real life combat ship that served in both WW1 and WW2. She was the last survivor of the Battle of Jutland still afloat. Afterwards , you will get to see the highlight of the tour, the Titanic Experience Tour . Here you will learn all about Titanic’s tragic maiden voyage across the Atlantic.
Sadly all great adventures must come to an end. However the memories will last a lifetime so sit back while your guide plays some traditional music and enjoy reminiscing about your day tour to the north as you make your way back to Dublin around 7:15pm.
