Building on Northen Ireland’s Game of Thrones popularity, The Titanic Hotel has now opened in the province’s capital, Belfast.
Honouring the legacy of the shipyard and the infamous ocean liner, the hotel is housed in the former offices of Harland and Wolff, maritime designers and shipbuilders. What this means is that this vast and impressive space has been turned into an exceptional hotel which is set to become an attraction in it’s own right.
Having been renovated to the tune of £28 million, the hotel houses The Harland Bar, a ballroom and a heritage experience which is open to the public.
The hotel itself is based in the heart of the revamped industrial area of the city, with the iconic cranes and the ship launch slip way a short walk from the front doors. You can also visit the last remaining White Star vessel, the SS Nomadic.
What To See And Do In Belfast
Belfast has come a long way since the era of ‘the troubles’ and is now a vibrant city offering the Irish craic but with a definitely very Ulster twist.
Waterfront wanders, museums and castles are among Belfast’s tourist offerings. But for the playboy about town, you’ll want to check out the nightlife and the fine dining.
As for drinking, sure, you’ll find plenty of genuine Irish pubs (this is Ireland after all) where you can sink a few Guinnesses and a whisky or two. If that’s what you’re after head to The Crown Liquor Saloon.
But modern Belfast has some great bars and nightclubs too.
The Perch has a rooftop bar and an epic cocktail menu, the perfect place to start a night with Belfast’s more glam residents. To dance the night away, El Divino is where you’ll be able to get a more Ibiza meets Ireland vibe.
Book a room at the Titanic in Belfast and get stuck into this fantastic city.
