It is also known for its conflict and history during the era of the the Troubles, when the city was largely split between two parts and suffered from much politic violence. During the 1970s and 1980s it was considered to be a particularly dangerous city, but has since reinvented itself as a modern commercial centre with significant economic growth.

When to visit Belfast
Belfast is a coastal city that is located inland on the Eastern side of Northern Ireland. Unlike most places on the west of the island, it is significantly less wetter. It is dark in the winter time and usually the wettest, but because of the nature of this city you can in theory book a holiday rental here at any time of year and still see what you want to. The best time to visit is between April and October, when the days are longer and you are less likely to experience rainfall. The cost of accommodation in the city centre is highest in July and August when lots of people travel to Belfast not only to enjoy the city, but also to take trips outside of the city to the likes of Giants Causeway.
