Have a Spa Day
January is the perfect time to detox and rejuvenate with a luxury spa experience. The Spa at The Merchant Hotel is open to non-residents and offers treatments in a truly tranquil environment, far removed from the bustle of the city. Or visit the spa at Culloden Estate & Spa for relaxation rooms, a swimming pool and a wide range of therapies.
Go Somewhere New
Toast to the New Year in one of the city’s newest bars or restaurants. The recently-opened Santeria is a lively coffee shop and cocktail bar with rhythmic live music and a relaxed vibe. Across the street is the newly refurbished Fountain Lane – a historic pub offering tasty food, live sport and regular drinks offers.
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!
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.
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.
Light up the dark evenings with sensational events in Belfast and beyond. From festivals and musical productions, to sport, light shows and much more, there’s something for everyone.
