The areas around the, in the southern part of Belfast, offer the best in budget stays thanks to the youthful population. There are a handful of hostels for those who want to go really low. There are also a few theaters and the Botanical Gardens in this region too.
The historic center of Belfast around Donegall Square and Belfast City Hall are the best places for those that want to stay in the cultural hustle and bustle of the city, particularly those that want to shop til they drop. There are also many sculptures in nearby artist quarters.
For travelers that want to relax away from the lively city, Northern Belfast is the place to be. It is close to the Belfast Zoo, Belfast Castle, and provides a number of good trails with spectacular views of the coast and city.
Living like locals would require a stay in East Belfast, which is largely protestant as well as residential. It has less ‘troubles’ than some of the other neighborhoods around the city and is close to several government buildings.
For those that want to live in the lap of Belfast luxury, Victoria Street offers many plush, top of the line hotels with beautiful landscaping, bars, restaurants, and a short walk to the center of the city.
