Belfast Political Walking Tour - Conflicting Stories:
- Adult Price From: £18.
This year you're invited to hear first-hand accounts from both sides of The Troubles. 'Conflicting Stories' is a unique opportunity to share in personal accounts that you won't get from history books. Tours are led and narrated by people who were closely involved in this turbulent period of Northern Ireland's history. See Belfast's world-famous murals and understand the stories behind them.
At first you'll be met by a Republican ex-political prisoner who will take you on a guided walk along the Falls Road. Halfway through the 3-hour journey you'll pass through a set of controlled gates into the protestant area of Shankill Road. Here you'll meet a Loyalist ex-political prisoner who'll share their side of the story.
Giant's Causeway Shore Excursion:
- Adult Price From: £35.
Visit Giant's Causeway and explore the city of Belfast during your shore excursion in the capital of Northern Ireland. This carefully timed tour is tailored to suit individuals, couples and small family groups travelling to Belfast by cruise ship. It's fully guided and takes in the best of the North Antrim coast (including 5 designated stopping points) and a Belfast City Tour.
Game of Thrones Shore Excursion:
- Adult Price From: £35.
Like Daenerys making landfall on the shores beneath Dragonstone, make your landing in Belfast a foray into the real-world Westeros. See first-hand the stunning scenery that served as the backdrop to HBO’s flagship series when you join this unforgettable shore excursion to some of Northern Ireland's Game of Thrones filming locations.
HMS Caroline + Belfast Bus Tour:

Take a trip back to 1916 and witness daily life aboard a Royal Navy C-class cruiser. Each area of this historic battleship has been restored to its original World War 1 condition and equipped with augmented reality and multi-sensory displays. You'll see how the 300-strong crew lived and worked, as well as the trials they faced at the bloody and sometimes overlooked Battle of Jutland.
