Is it possible to do a 3 hour tour of Belfast and see the city from the Protestant and Catholic sides and do a tour of the Titanic? Or is too much ground to cover in 1 day?

We did a HOHO bus tour and had a very good official Blue Badge guide. Although she tried to keep her commentary neutral you could tell where her sympathies laid. Nevertheless, it was a good tour.


we spent well over 3 hours in the Titanic museum and could have been there longer. We had 3 days in Belfast about 18 months ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. There is plenty to see and do.

Take a Black Taxi Tour, very informative.  Gerry (our driver in 2014) also tried to keep it neutral, but was very passionate as well, regarding the history of Ireland/Northern Ireland and Belfast.  There were areas that were not safe to linger, or get out of the car, and he told us so and why.  We were able to to get out at the Freedom wall as well as sign the Peace Wall. We had about 2 hours in Belfast, before we continued on to the Giant's Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. after which we went back to Dublin.  (We didnt do the Titanic Museum.  We had the choice between that and the black taxi tour)


Our day in Belfast/Northern Ireland and especially the Black Taxi Tour, were our favorite part of our Ireland Trip.  It was a separate 8 night trip that we took and had nothing to do with a cruise.  But that trip was enough to make us decide if we ever wanted to move out of the USA, We would move to Ireland in a heartbeat.
