Summer in Belfast

Ireland is famous for the rain and cold weather, however, during the late Spring and the Summer season we can be blessed with some sun-shining days! Knowing what to do on these days can be difficult so I am going to give you a few ideas which may inspire a great trip or two.

Botanic Gardens

BotanicThe Botanic Gardens located right beside Queen’s University in the Queen’s quarter is one of my favorite spots during the summer. Whether you need a study break or a relaxed day in the park Botanic gardens is your spot.

It is also located close to Botanic road which is home to many great food places such as Boojum (personal favorite), ChipCo and Tribal Burger. If you are hungry and the weather is nice, be sure to grab something to-go and head to the gardens to enjoy your lunch in the sunshine!

Cathedral Quarter

You can also stop by at one of the many pubs in this area to quench your thirst. Many play live music throughout the day adding to the buzz and providing a great atmosphere for your summer day out. On the weekends this is a big hot-spot for both locals and students so I would definitely recommend a trip down there.
