Belfast and Titanic Experience Tour

Let us take you on an insightful journey to the great city of Belfast ,capital of Northern Ireland. Visit the Republican museum (Tuesday to Saturday only), Peace Wall and murals of West Belfast, acting as stark reminders of the times of political turmoil, now coined ‘the Troubles’. After free time to explore Belfast city centre, jump aboard the HMS Caroline for a tour of a real life war ship that served in WW1 and WW2.  You will then visit the highlight of the tour, the Titanic Experience Tour.

Tour Itinerary

8:00am
The Belfast day tour departs from the Suffolk street outside the old stone church.  Your 
guide will give a short introduction of the tour before we head on our way!  The tour brings us along the northern suburbs of town and 
your guide will fill you in on the sites we pass as well as give you a brief overview of the politics in the North.

10:15am
Welcome to Belfast City!  Our drive begins in West Belfast which is the home to the 'Loyalists' (those loyal to the Queen) and on the
opposite side, the 'Republicans' (those who want to unite with Ireland).  'The Peace Wall' divides the sides and it is seen as a 
peace line between the two opposing sides.  Here you will be told about how the troubles started and what the relationships are 
like today.  The murals on wall depict the personal stories from the viewpoint of each side.  We visit the 
Republican Museum that contains a large collection of artifacts and has a library for research and audiovisual aids.  We are the 
only tour from Dublin that has access to these facilities which makes this an amazing experience!  
(Please note that the museum is closed on Sunday and Monday each week.)

12:00pm
Now is your time to explore Belfast on your own and get some lunch.  
A few suggestions while you walk around:
- At the Crown Liquor Saloon, with it's ornate Victorian exterior and wooden partitions, you can show your political preference by 
walking over the the crown or around it at the entrance.
- If cultural education is your goal, take a look at the Grand Opera house or St. Anne's Cathedral (also known as Belfast Cathedral).
At St. Anne's, find out more about the cathedral's "Black Santa" or listen to the largest pipe organ in Northern Ireland play.  
- Check out the Albert Memorial Clock which was constructed between 1865 and 1869 for £2,500.  Since the clock tower was not built
on solid ground, the tower leans four feet off the perpendicular.  
- The Linen Hall Library will guarantee you a great history lesson.  As Belfast's oldest library, it is renowned for its vast Irish 
and Local Studies Collection and contains 250,000 items in the Northern Ireland Political Collection.
- City Hall on Donegal square is a large dome that looks similar to the White House.  In fact, Bill Clinton addressed the people of 
Northern Ireland here in 1995.

1:15pm
HMS Caroline : 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.

Titanic Experience Touryou 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.
