There, you can also admire the well-preserved antique bathhouses with complex irrigation systems.

Another attraction is the 12th-century Belfast Castle, just outside the city, on Cave Hill. Also worth visiting are the Grand Opera House and St Anne's Cathedral.

The Belfast Zoo has 1200 animals, and is a great day out for the whole family. However, those traveling with friends might enjoy the busy nightlife of Belfast that has to offer. A beautiful pub in the city is the Crown Bar, whose Victorian-style exterior hints at the impressive ambience inside.
