The variety found in Belfast’s hotels reflects the culturally diverse nature of the city, which ranges from a backdrop of shipbuilding heritage to its thriving nightlife. A former bank plays home to the five-star Merchant Hotel (16 Skipper Street), which offers a spa and champagne bar, while the more affordable Park Inn by Radisson Belfast (4 Clarence Street West) boasts an excellent city centre location. The Ten Square Hotel (10 Donegall Square South) is a trendy boutique hotel with 23 rooms, or for those wishing to be close to the Odyssey Arena, the Premier Inn Belfast Titanic Quarter (2A Queens Road) should suit.

Belfast offers a wide array of shopping options from quirky independent shops to high-street chains, meaning there should be something for everyone. The Victoria Square Shopping Centre (1 Victoria Square) is packed with household names such as Apple, Ted Baker, and more recently Hugo Boss. For something a little more unique head to the Corium (37 Church Lane), for a selection ranging from painted plaques to handmade jewellery, or for homeware produced by local designers seek out Space Craft (9b The Fountain Centre). For an excellent selection of quality antiques over two floors check out Oakland Antiques (135-137 Donegall Pass).

Local ingredients are abundant thanks to Northern Ireland’s plentiful farmland and coastline, with a particular tipping of the hat going in the direction of the seafood. Fresh produce can be found on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at St George’s Market (12-20 East Bridge Street), while the Arcadia Delicatessen (378 Lisburn Road) is worth a visit. For an evening meal some of the most highly recommended spots include Deane’s (36-40 Howard Street), The Barking Dog (33-35 Malone Road) and Mourne Seafood Bar (34-36 Bank Street).
