About Belfast

So we talked plenty about the cheapest way to call Belfast, but what about the actual city? Well, Belfast is the capital of Northern Ireland and was once the shipbuilding center of the UK. In fact, the RMS Titanic was put together in the city’s shipyards. Belfast has also proudly maintained its status as Northern Ireland’s cultural heart. If you’re visiting, you can take in a show at the outstanding Lyric Theatre, the stage upon which Liam Neeson got his start, or just walk along and enjoy the gorgeous Victorian architecture.
