If you’re still looking for some travel inspiration this summer, then how about Belfast? Explore the land of Game of Thrones – with The Touring Exhibition at the TEC from now until 31st August; pay a visit to the world’s largest Titanic visitor experience and immerse yourself in an incredible food and drink scene that can rival any city in Europe.

As if all that wasn’t reason enough to visit Northern Ireland’s historic capital, then how about the Belfast Pride Festival 2019 Parade on Saturday 3rd August? Meanwhile for sports fans, the Ulster Grand Prix, regarded by many as the world’s fastest road race, takes place from 5th to 10th August.

Belfast can of course lay claim to hotel accommodation to suit every taste and budget. However, when it comes to unashamed luxury, the five-star Fitzwilliam, in the heart of the city, takes some beating.

This season the hotel presents its Spirit of Summer offering, a superb package that includes a two course evening meal in The Restaurant, cocktails in the bar on arrival, luxury evening turndown service and Full Irish Breakfast on the morning of your departure, all from just £165 per room!

For anyone really looking to push the boat out, this summer or indeed at any time, the Fitzwilliam’s brand-new Penthouse – all 1300 square feet of it – is the epitome of opulence.

A dining and entertaining area with baby grand piano and bar, framed on two sides with floor to ceiling glazing and wrap around south-facing roof terrace, offers truly spectacular views. You can even take advantage of your very own steam room or indeed take a bath in front of a plate glass picture window framing the city!

What’s more, in addition to the jaw-droppingly excellent service of The Fitzwilliam Hotel itself, the Penthouse comes complete with optional extras in the shape of your very own butler, chauffeur and private shopper!
