Belfast is a beautiful city, especially on a bright summers day. Belfast has a lot to offer in the sunshine and we are lucky enough to be within walking, cycling, and driving distance of breathtaking surroundings.
Eat Lunch at Belfast City Hall
The sun comes out, and the gardens of Belfast City Hall come to life. Why not pack a picnic, sit on the grass and watch the world go by in the middle of the city?
Capture a Sunset
Sunny days mean spectacular evening skies, so don’t forget to grab your camera and head to a prime sunset location at the golden hour. Some of our favourite spots include the Titanic Quarter, where you can snap a sunset shot of our famous Harland and Wolff cranes; and Cave Hill, where you can capture the sun going down over the city.
Explore the City on Two Wheels
Beautiful days in the city are a great opportunity to get active and explore, and what better way to do so than on two wheels? Grab your bicycle, or hire one of the Belfast bikes, and cycle around some of the city’s beauty spots.
Relax in Botanic Gardens
Just like Belfast City Hall, the Botanic Gardens is another hot spot for sun-worshippers in the city. For those who need a break from city life, this is the perfect escape, with exquisite gardens to explore.
Take a Road Trip to the North Coast
Belfast has a lot to offer in the sunshine, but we are also lucky enough to be within driving distance of Northern Ireland’s stunning coastline. Take a road trip to the North Coast, take in some beautiful views, and visit iconic locations including the Giant’s Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.
Climb Cave Hill
In the mood for a walk? There’s no better time to tackle Belfast’s Cave Hill than on a summer’s day. Pack some water for the climb, and be sure not to forget your camera to capture those views when you reach the top.
Soak up the Atmosphere of the Cathedral Quarter
If you’re planning a drink or two in the sun, Commercial Court should undoubtedly be your first stop. The Cathedral Quarter comes alive when the sun is shining, so grab a drink in the Duke of York and step outside to the quaint cobbled street to enjoy some ‘craic’ and soak up the atmosphere of the city.
Enjoy Al Fresco Dining
Enjoy sunny weather and long evenings with a bite to eat in the fresh air at one of Belfast’s al fresco restaurants. Here, is a round up the best spots in Belfast. From rooftop terraces and river views to the piazza at St Anne’s Square, there are lots of ways to relax in the fresh air.
