After boarding your motor coach at the pier, you will venture into the city, viewing its well-known landmarks such as City Hall, Queens University, the Ulster Museum, the Botanic Gardens and the Albert Memorial Clock. Dominating the Belfast skyline are the two giant cranes of the Harland and Wolff shipyards, affectionately known as Samson and Goliath. It was in these shipyards that the ill-fated Titanic was built. Continue on and visit the political wall murals located on the Shankill Road, a mainly Protestant and Loyalist area, and the Falls Road, a mostly Catholic and Republican district. You will then enjoy a photo stop at Stormont, the seat of the Northern Ireland Assembly, before making your way to the day’s main attraction. No visit to Belfast would be complete without a visit to one of its historic and famous pubs. The hospitality of Belfast and its people are legendary, and there is no better way to enjoy good conversation or storytelling than in a pub over a drink. Savor the atmosphere of the pub before making your return to the pier and your ship.
Road closures sometimes affect access to the Falls and Shankill roads, and on these occasions alternative political wall murals are included in the tour.
