from very humble beginnings… It started out
as a small hamlet with fertile land along the mouth of the Lagan. Soon,
marauders and pirates realized the lough was deep and the shores were
safe from the north Atlantic storms. It was a perfect haven for
repairing sea-ravaged ships. From these early stages the industrious
a boat building trade. And the rest is history.
Belfast today is packed with history,
culture, exciting events, great food, super shopping… you might even
spot a ship or two. You’ll also find some of the friendliest people
you’ll ever meet.
