Belfast [1] (Irish: Béal Feirste, meaning "the sandy ford at the river mouth") is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland which is part of the United Kingdom, and the second largest city on the island of Ireland after Dublin, the capital of the Republic of Ireland.
Belfast was recently awarded the accolade of safest city in the UK based on a comparison of nation-wide crime figures, and as part of its commitment to maintain peace, now seeks tourism from all around the world, especially from countries other than the Irish Republic and the rest of the UK.
Belfast remains a great place to explore as it is still relatively undiscovered compared to our neighbors in Dublin and is ideal for the tourist that enjoys a city with character yet still has a raw, unspoilt energy.
