Cities and Sights

After years of conflict, Belfast is coming into its own as a burgeoning metropolis. Its various shopping centers sell everything from strawberries to luxury watchwear. The city's people are kind and friendly, even though you don't have to go far to find someone who remembers “the Troubles,” . But far from having resentment and a “hush-hush” attitude, the people of Belfast enagage with their history; black cab tours of West Belfast, the area of hottest conflict, have become a popular tourist attraction.

Giant's Causeway
