What to See in Belfast in 24 Hours

What to see in Belfast - Titanic Museum

What to see in Belfast in 24 hours. That was our dilemma. With such a short period of time in Northern Ireland’s capital, we knew we had to condense our itinerary into only the main sites. We decided to hit up the Titanic Museum, SS Nomadic and a Hope On Hop Off Sightseeing Tour. It’s not ideal as there are lots of attractions and activities to do but it’s just an excuse to return, right?

View from the top of Ben A'an

I love hill walks but I’m a total unfit beginner. I was desperate to ‘bag’ some of Scotland’s famous munros, but the truth is, I am unfit and unprepared to take on such a big climb.

But when I found an amazing price on Booking.com for the Radisson Blu for my trip to Bremen, I couldn’t turn it down.

We travelled to Bremen for the May Bank Holiday as a last-minute trip. I wanted to take full advantage of the extra free day off work so decided to take the Friday off as a holiday to make it a 4-day weekend. Bliss! You can read my post here on what we did on our trip.
