Sign up for Hidden Dublin

Northern Ireland is one of the most charming and least known parts of the Emerald Isle.


Belfast is the capital and for a long time featured in the chapter of history called the ‘Troubles’, when Catholics and Protestants faced each other in the city streets. This atmosphere of contrast can still be felt in the air through the murals and the wall of peace that divides the city’s neighborhoods. The famous Titanic ship set sail from the port of Belfast, remembered in the homonymous museum housed in a building with the same proportions and appearance of the ship.

Once in Belfast, we recommend taking a political tour of the city and a visit to the Titanic museum.

The Black Taxi Tour

Political taxi tours of Belfast allow you to learn about the political history of the city. From the beginning of the clashes between republicans and loyalists to the peace process at the end of the 90s, local guides will take you to the most significant places in the city’s history including the famous political murals… Forget Banksy! With this tour you will be shown the “graffiti” that tell true stories! The guided tour will show you the peace wall and you will have the opportunity to write our message of peace on the wall.

The Titanic Museum

The Titanic Museum is Belfast’s main attraction and was built on the site of the former Harland & Wolff shipyard in the Titanic Quarter. The exhibition tells the stories of the ill-fated Titanic, which was struck by an iceberg on her maiden voyage in 1912, and sister ships RMS Olympic and HMHS Britannic. The exhibition covers 12,000 square meters (130,000 square feet) of floor space, most of which is taken up by a series of galleries including a faithful recreation of the Titanic’s original ballroom! Absolutely not to be missed!

From Belfast we advise you to head towards the Giant’s Path through the village of Bushmills, from which the famous Irish whiskey takes its name, and then finally reach the Giant’s Path where you will immediately feel immersed in a mythological atmosphere.

The Giant’s Path, between history and mythology

Discovered in the late 1600s, the Giant’s Path is one of the most visited attractions in Ireland as well as a UNESCO heritage site. It is said that the Giants who built these passages with rocks that over time took on bizarre shapes, the site with its peculiar basalt columns has been declared a world heritage site by UNESCO and represents a source of study and inspiration for artists and scientists.

From the giant’s path we suggest you head towards Carrick-a-rede, where you can visit a wonderful rope bridge once used by the village fishermen and which still hangs 30 meters above the sea.

*You only have to pay the cost of crossing the bridge.
