Belfast & Northern Ireland

Troubles Tourism

15 Apr 2018
A trip to Belfast and N. Ireland isn't without its curiosity value. We're talking 'The Troubles' - that quaintly named period of our history from the late '60s to the 1998 Good Friday Agreement when political conflict was at its height.

Thankfully, we have emerged from that contentious past, with the vast majority embracing peace and building a better future. But what remains of those dark days for our history hungry visitor?
