Book a Belfast City Break

January sale fever has hit Belfast hotels, with special discounts available at many of the city’s places to stay throughout the month and into early spring.

Walkers Climbing Divis Mountain

Go for a Winter Walk

Wrap up and head out for a walk in the stunning parklands, hills and estates in Belfast and across Northern Ireland. From forest parks full of wildlife to seaside strolls and stately homes’ gardens, discover the beauty of our landscapes in the winter while burning off some festive calories!

The Dark Hedges

Take a Road Trip

Go from a drive and discover our hidden gems, geological wonders and real-life fantasy locations from the warmth of your car! There’s something spectacular about Northern Ireland’s rolling landscapes in the winter sun and the off-peak visitor season means more space to soak up the scenery. Step into Game of Thrones Territory at the Dark Hedges, follow St Patrick’s Trail or explore the shores of Strangford Lough. Or book a coach, taxi or private guided sightseeing tour.

Indoor Adventures

Dodge the cold weather with an indoor adventure. Belfast has loads of places where you can enjoy some family fun or a day out with friends in the comfort of the great indoors.
