Belfast - A Brief History


Early History

Although there was a settlement on the site since the Bronze Age, the city we know today has it origins in the 17th century. The town of Belfast was established by Sir Arthur Chichester, with the name 'Belfast' being an Anglicisation of the Irish Béal Feirste, which roughly translates as 'the mouth of the sandbar'.


Propsperity in the Victorian Era

Queen Victoria, after whom Queen's University is named, granted Belfast city statuc in 1888.


The Industrial Revolution

During the Industrial Revolution the city was the biggest in Ireland, surpassing even Dublin, an was famous for tobacco, rope-making, linen and of course shipbuilding. Many of the beautiful Victorian buildings in the city centre were originally either warehouses or outlets for linen, and the Harland and Wolff shipyards employed thousands of men in the east of the city.


Optimism for a new generation

Sadly no account of Belfast would be complete without mentioning the Troubles. Conflict raged from 1969 to 1998, but thankfully the city bounced back with a vengance.


Tourism Boom

As inward investment and tourism oured int othe city in the wake of the Good Friday Agreement, the city came into its own, shedding most of its old reputation. With a burgeoning entrepreneurial environment, combined with the low cost of living, it was voted the UK's favourite city in the Guardian and Observer Travel Awards 2016.


Extend Your Stay

So why not extend your stay and enjoy the beauty of Belfast and Northern Ireland, an excellent place to eact drink and be merry.
