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 or hotel stay? 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.
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 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.
