Great spot for a city shopping trip in Belfast. It was only 15 minute walk to city centre and the Xmas markets. Lovely spacious rooms and cocktail and tapas bar made this hotel an enjoyable stay. Staff were very friendly and price good for boutique hotel.

The murals in the Protestant area of Belfast are not as colourful or political, they are more memorials for the soldiers who volunteered in WW1 and for the people who have died in the troubles. They use much more emotive language, one memorial describing the slaughter of innocents by the murderers of the republicans. The streets here are bursting with ...
... where the Belfast Giants ice hockey team play. Traditional sports like Football and Rugby can often be a source of contention in the Ireland and Scotland, with Catholics and Protestants often quite ardently supporting different sides. The ice hockey team represents an opportunity to bring the city together under a totally different sport. The Odyssey even has a Canadian themed sports bar for after the game, which was hilarious.
