When I bring Shamrock and Peach guests to see the Belfast Titanic Center the response is always one of unexpected emotion and reverence. The center tells the story of the great and famous Titanic liner that sank in 1912 on her maiden voyage, and in so doing literally became a world icon. So, when I heard the news that the center has just won the 2016 Travel Award as Europe’s leading visitor attraction I was amazed, pleased and naturally wanted to blog about it…yes, Belfast Titanic beat the Acropolis, Athens, Buckingham Palace, England, Guinness Storehouse, Dublin, La Sagrada Familia, Spain, Ribeira do Porto, Portugal, The Eiffel Tower, France and The Roman Colosseum, Italy – to name a few!….wow!.

The Titanic Center just opened four years ago on the actual slipway in the titanic Quarter where the mighty ship was built and set sail in 1912. The building itself reflects the exact dimensions of the bow of the ship, and has won many awards itself for it’s outstanding design. Another addition is the exhibit of the last white Star liner, the Nomadic, that was used to ferry passengers back and forth to the Titanic, and is docked peacefully in Belfast again after 100 years of service.

The center is all very nostalgic for Belfast and an award like this is to mean feat for Ireland’s shores.

Shamrock and Peach tours have just also added the 2017 schedules that includes visiting the Titanic Center in Belfast. So, way to go Northern Ireland!

  1. Did you go here when you were in Belfast? Some day I want to hear about all the rest of your trip, and see any photos if you took them.
