Whether you're counting down the days to Dublin or still deciding where to study abroad, take a look at this Belfast excursion that awaits you! This tour will take you through the heart of the city, give you insight on the historic and religious conflict, and let you pay tribute to victims of the Titanic.
Our CAPA program went on a lovely trip to Belfast, Northern Ireland. We were given a really in depth walking tour of the city. We started off at city hall, observing the impressive building and visited the Titanic Memorial Garden.
A memorial plaque with the names of those who went down with the Titanic.
We walked through the city and learned about its religious history, which is filled with conflict.
We then went to the very interesting Titanic Museum.
Your eye is immediately drawn to the modern building, which holds an amazing tour of the many aspects of shipbuilding and the titanic, including a ride.
Then we went to Stormont, where the Northern Irish parliament is held, yet has not been in session in over a year.
As an International Studies major, I loved learning about the history of conflict within Ireland during this tour and the ongoing effects there have been as a result of this conflict.
