There’s nothing like crisp blue skies and sunny days in Belfast to make everything that little bit more beautiful.

Sunshine means even more opportunities to explore the city, and we have some inspiration to help you make the most of the beautiful weather.

Eat lunch at Belfast City Hall

The sun comes out, and the city of Belfast flocks to the gardens of Belfast City Hall. Why not pack a picnic, sit on the grass and watch the world go by in the middle of the city?

Enjoy a drink on the roof

One of the best ways to soak up the sunshine is with a cocktail in hand, overlooking the city. Grab a group of friends, and head to one of Belfast’s rooftop bars, including Ten Square, Babel Belfast and The Perch, for panoramic views of the city and a holiday vibe.

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 City Hall, Belfast’s 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, and even the Tropical Ravine, if you're ready to turn up the heat by a few extra degrees.

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.
