Tips / Destination

Pub culture is a big deal in Belfast, and there are plenty of watering holes where you can have a quiet drink or a big night out. Here are some of the best.

Among the newer pubs in town is The Five Points, which has quickly made a reputation as a top spot for live music. Grab a pint and watch the band play the night away.

Arguably the most famous pub in Belfast is The Crown Liquor Saloon, which boasts a long history and a consistently good atmosphere. Just across the road you will find Robinsons Bar, which has a number of rooms in different themes.

Head away from the tourist areas to Maddens Bar, where there are live bands every night. This is a real locals pub, so you might be one of the only tourists around.

Nearby is Kelly’s Cellars, a historic pub chock full of bric-a-brac. It’s an atmospheric old place that is a good bet for a Sunday afternoon drink.

Another historic pub is Whites Tavern, running since the 17th century. You can look it up in A Taste of Ulster Guide, and there are traditional peat-burning fires to keep you warm during the winter months.

Adventures on Pitcairn Island

Pitcairn Island is a remote patch of land between Eastern Island and French Polynesia, and Britain’s only inhabited territory in the Pacific. At only 15 square miles and a population of 50, it doesn’t exactly come to mind as an adventurous tourist destination. However, this tiny island is hiding some incredible opportunities.

Riad Le Bel Oranger, Marrakesh, Morocco

In the loud, busy and often overwhelming medina of Marrakesh, it can be difficult to find a tiny sliver of solace in which to rest after spending hours negotiating for the best market prices. But one riad truly exemplifies the characteristic of “tucked away,” as it’s located a few connected alleyways from the noise and congestion.

Take Me to Tahiti

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.

Highly Anticipated Films for Summer

The summer of 2019 will be filled with blockbuster hits. There are some recognizable brands that will perform well and some newcomers that might take the box office by surprise.

The film brings an end to the series and fans are not going to wait until it’s available on DVD. Endgame is going to jumpstart the season by bringing people to the movies and reminding them why it’s worth spending money to see a movie in theaters versus at home.
