Day Tour of the Titanic and Belfast from Dublin.
A Truly Titanic adventure of Belfast:
The Titanic Built in Belfast celebrates 100 years since its maiden voyage.
The tour leaves Dublin daily for Belfast and the New Titanic Visitor Centre.
The RMS Titanic was built by Harland and Wolff in Belfast for the White Star Line in 1912.
We will visit the new Titanic Visitor Centre in the heart of the city.
We will also visit many interesting locations along the way giving an insight to some of the events that lead to Belfast becoming the ship building capital of the British Empire.
• Drogheda – Historical Norman city of the mouth of the river Boyne, the siege of Oliver Cromwell
• Monasterboice - Monasterboice is said to have been founded by St. Buithe (d. 520), a follower of St. Patrick, in the late 5th century AD. Some of the finest examples of High Crosses in Ireland.
• Belfast and the Titanic Visitor Centre – Tour of Belfast, its past and present visiting both the Falls Road and the Shankill Rd with a stop for lunch before visiting the Titanic quarter of the city.
Historically, Belfast derives its name from Gaelic “Béal Feirste” (Mouth of the Sandy Fjord) and has been a centre for the Irish linen industry (earning the nickname "Linenopolis"), tobacco production, rope-making and shipbuilding.
The city's main shipbuilders, Harland and Wolff built the well-known RMS Titanic, which propelled Belfast on to the global stage in the early 20th century as the biggest and most productive shipyard in the world.
Belfast played a key role in the Industrial Revolution, establishing its place as a global industrial centre until the latter half of the 20th century. Industrialisation and the inward migration it brought made Belfast, if briefly, the biggest city in Ireland at the beginning of the 20th century
