Northern Ireland's capital is firmly establishing itself as a top European destination. If you're planning a visit, the following experiences should be on your to do list...
1. A Chocolate Masterclass at Co Couture
Any notions you have of becoming a master chocolatier will be tested by attending a chocolate-making masterclass run by award-winning chocolate shop, Co Couture.

2. Cocktails at The Merchant
Local blogger John says the bar at the 5-star Merchant Hotel is Belfast's pride and glory. At 5-star bars you get 5-star cocktails and apparently you haven't sampled a real cocktail until you've tasted what's crafted here.

4. St George's Market
If it's good enough for the Queen to pop in, it must be worth a visit. St George's Market has been a Belfast institution since the late 1800s serving up fresh food, artistic crafts and a buzzing atmosphere.

5. A Pint in The Cathedral Quarter
The Cathedral Quarter is where you'll find, in blogger Jeff's words, "some of the most lively and iconic bars that Belfast has to offer". With live music and friendly crowds, this hub of activity is the place to be as dusk approaches.
Jeff tells us where to go in 5 Venues for a Night Out in the Cathedral Quarter Belfast.
6. Titanic Belfast
A blue sapphire, a drawing of a naked woman, Leonardo Di Caprio and a saucy scene in the back of a vintage car all spell one word: Titanic. But Belfast is even more synonymous with the word 'Titanic' than James Cameron's masterpiece. As we all know, Belfast was the birthplace of this magnificent feat of engineering. Titanic Belfast is more than just a museum, it's an interactive and fascinating journey through Belfast's history.
