A Sunday spent exploring the Maritime Mile is the perfect way to end the week! The itinerary includes some of Belfast’s most historic maritime attractions, lunch at Novelli at City Quays and music from some of our local talent.
Our wonderful waterfront is now a famous port of call for public art. An hour of walking will take you from the gleaming, dynamic Flying Angel at the Mission to Seafarers in Sailortown, to Belfast’s oldest Dock, Clarendon Dock where the 8.3m high Dividers sculpture pays homage to skills of the past and frames new views of the city. Finally, onward to Donegall Quay where the shimmering, blue ceramic scales of the Big Fish is an Instagram must-have for anyone who passes by.
Treat yourself with the stylish AC Hotel at City Quays where the wonderful Novelli restaurant serves Mediterranean and French influenced food, cocktails, tapas and afternoon tea. The signature touches of celebrity chef Jean Christophe Novelli bring a little foodie excellence to the Maritime Mile and give you a chance to enjoy the views of waterfront life in absolute luxury.
Now its time to sit back, relax and enjoy some of NI’s finest artists popping up at SoundYard and various locations across the mile. From opera, singer-songwriters, jazz, trad, folk, indie and electronic, there is something for everyone to enjoy!
Don’t miss NI Opera’s ‘Northern Songs’- a film series showcasing Northern Ireland’s best loved landscapes and landmarks that will be featured at RiverBox each Sunday.
