Groupon’s Guide to Belfast
Also known as the economic engine of Northern Ireland, Belfast is a cosmopolitan city combining a rich heritage with contemporary perks. Once the home of the Irish linen industry and the famous Harland and Wolff shipbuilders, Belfast is one of the most visited cities in Europe, boasting over 8 million visitors every year.
Guests can get a breath of fresh air with a stroll through the large number of parks and open spaces, while history enthusiasts may visit several historic sites, such as the Albert Memorial Clock, raised in the 19th century in Gothic style, or the famous Stormont Castle, the main meeting place of the country’s Executive. A short walk from the River Lagan and the Waterfront Hall, shopping seekers may find plenty of opportunities to buy traditional Irish products in St George’s Market, the last surviving Victorian covered market in Belfast. Dining options are enriched by traditional bars where guests may have a taste of the local ales and wines, while the restaurants offer a wide variety of Irish specialties including the well-known Irish Stew, a famous dish dating back to the 19th century, made from lamb or mutton as well as potatoes, onions, and parsley.
