With so many things to do in Belfast, we have taken some of the stress out of the decision making. We’ve pulled together some of Belfast’s top places to see and things to do that we believe are a must for any visitor staying in our Belfast Hotel. You might not manage them all in a single trip, but that’s a great reason to return!
Northern Ireland’s golf history extends well over a century, when Royal Belfast became the first golf club on this island in 1881. These include our grandest Royal Portrush and Royal County Down, still just as challenging and invigorating today. In 1951 Royal Portrush became the first course on the island to host the British Open and continues to be a venue for some of the national amateur competitions.
Located in the heart of the city of Belfast, The Merchant Hotel is perfectly located for site seeing further afield. Whether hiring a car, taking a taxi or joining an official tour, there are a huge range of stunning locations to visit, right across the country. Here are a list of our favourites.
