Upon your arrival in Belfast, the first major stop will be the Peace Wall – an essential part of Belfast’s modern history. Full of graffiti, murals and signatures, the wall is also a bit of an art piece these days – why don’t you add your own signature?
From there, your group will be brought to the Republican Museum, which features a collection of memorabilia from Belfast’s and Northern Ireland’s recent history. There are uniforms, weapons, photos, newspapers, posters and even parts of prison cells on display, giving your group some very authentic insights.
Afterwards, your group can enjoy some free time in Belfast City Centre and have some lunch, for example in one of the numerous pubs around Belfast City Hall. They could also visit a local sight, such as Ulster Hall, the Linen Hall Library or the City Hall itself.
Next up on your schedule is the HMS Caroline. This decommissioned light cruiser from World War I serves as a museum ship since 2016, the 100-year anniversary of the Battle of Jutland, one of the war’s major naval confrontations. The floating museum explores the ship’s role in both World Wars and beyond.
For your last stop in Belfast, your group will visit Belfast’s most popular attraction: the Titanic Experience. On seven galleries, the full history of the famous cruiser is explored here, from its construction right here in Belfast, to the great event that was its launch, the journey to New York, the passengers and of course the disaster of its sinking. The exhibition also deals with the many myths and legends surrounding the Titanic and it features a presentation on the wreckage, which still lies off the coast of Newfoundland.
After this major highlight, your coach will depart back to Dublin, where you will arrive around dinner time.
