Belfast Restaurant Vouchers
The Eat and Drink Belfast Restaurant Vouchers can be used in over 60 eateries in the city, offering the choice between Michelin Star fine dining, quirky restaurants, gastro pubs and cafes. They’re the perfect reason for your mum to enjoy some wining and dining, and can be bought online or in the Visit Belfast Welcome Centre.
Hotel and Spa Vouchers
What would a busy mum love more than a luxurious spa day? Buy a gift card for the Merchant Hotel, Culloden Estate and Spa or Galgorm Spa and Golf Resort and she can spend it at a later date on a day of being pampered in one of their beautiful spas. The hotels’ monetary gift vouchers can also be spent on overnight stays, meals and afternoon teas too.
Clothing, Jewellery and Gifts
Find clothing, footwear and accessories in Seasalt, a creative boutique inspired by Cornwall and life by the sea; or pop next door to Avoca for scarves, homeware and coffee table books. Go to Born and Bred for locally made gifts or Lunn’s, Steensons or Newbridge Silver for jewellery. Top it off with local chocolates from Sawers or Old Time Favourites.
If your mum is a bit of a foodie, treat her to a food tour or tasting experience. She can make her own gin with Belfast Gin School or watch it be made at Copeland Gin Distillery or Echlinville Distillery. Or enjoy a family trip to Aunt Sandra’s Chocolate Factory to see old-time candy making, or a session at Tracey’s Farmhouse Kitchen where she can make and sample traditional griddle breads in a cosy kitchen setting.
