I was in Belfast on Wednesday;very pretty town when the weather is compliant and everything worth seeing is well-accessible on foot.The Ulster Museum (in Queens Uni) was interesting;displaying exhibits on natural history,art&history;good value grub there in the museum's cafe/restaurant also and a gift shop for any nice souvenirs you may want.The Hop on/Hop off City Tour from Castle Street was excellent;hugely informative&darkly humourous presentation by our guide;you get to see the peace walls/lines,Shankill/Falls Road murals,Stormont,Titanic Quarter,City Hall and Queen's Unifrom from a nice,comfy vantage of open top,double-decker.The Black Taxi tours of paramilitary areas are also outstanding (pre-booking is advised).
If you're feeling energetic;take a walk up Cavehill with nice vistas of Belfast and its surroundings,Belfast Zoo (if you've got young kids)&W5 at the Odyssey (also for kids).The Victoria or Castlecourt Shopping Centre might cater for a girlfriend's/wife's sartorial tastes.
