Belfast

Have you ever been to Belfast?
If your answer is no, then you should change it. It’s beautiful and the food is delicious.
For a quite long time, we put off our trip to Belfast in favour of visiting other places in Ireland.
But last weekend was a perfect time to go somewhere and do some sightseeing instead of sitting at home (yes, our apartment is lovely and a couch is so comfy…).

I didn’t have any expectations. I got really good tips from one of my coworkers Patrick what to see and where to eat, read a little bit of my guidebook and we headed to Belfast. We were lucky to see Belfast almost empty. It was the bank holiday weekend, so you wouldn’t see too many people on the streets. It was somehow refreshing. Taking photos is easier when you don’t have too many people around.

Belfast is beautiful. I loved the architecture, even though some of the buildings look older then they actually are I still find them pretty.

Lovely botanic garden.

When it comes to food in Belfast you can’t complain. Thanks to recommendation we had lovely dinner at Nick’s Warehouse. The food was delicious.

We went for a pint to the Crown Bar. The interior is just gorgeous.

But something we really felt in love was St. George’s Market. Can we please move it to Dublin? Pretty please.

You can find there a lot of different things – fruits, veggies, jewellery, seaweed, spices, bread.

We weren’t the only ones who decided to start a morning with breakfast in St. George’s Market.

Belfast Bap, it’s probably not the healthiest breakfast ever, but it was delicious 🙂

Belfast is of course famous for its history. There are a lot of murals and places that remind you about it.

But Belfast is really safe city. It is considered the second safest city in the world behind Tokyo. And I must agree with opinion that people there are really friendly, we met a cyclist who just stopped for a chat when we were taking photos.
Of course Belfast is all about Titanic.
