Belfast Entries is a website dedicated to the history of our people & places of interest. As such we have covered a variety of historic subjects e.g. historic buildings, pubs, interesting ‘walks’, and historic people. We do not cover the more recent history eg ‘The Troubles’ though there are tours specialising in this.

This page is intended to help Belfast visitors identify historic places of interest and find places covered on our website, BelfastEntries.

We have no relationship with these organisations and cannot offer financial advice but we hope that some of the links may prove useful.
