Under $100 / Europe

The capital of Northern Ireland is a great place to spend a few days, but if you’ve only got one you can still see the best of the city on a budget.

 

Check out The Allotment for breakfast, where you can fill up on the bistro-style dishes such as eggs Benedict and salmon and scrambled egg. The ingredients are locally sourced and the setting is trendy yet welcoming ($15).

 

Spend the morning walking around the Titanic museum, where you can see how the doomed cruise liner was made. The museum is one of the biggest attractions in Belfast, and it’s easy to spend hours here.

 

For a quick lunch, try the Cuban Sandwich Factory. This lively place is known for amazing sandwiches at rock bottom prices, and you can get a good feed for as little as $6.

 

In the afternoon take a walk around some of the murals painted during the Troubles, a period of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland that lasted from the late 1960s to 1996, and then drop in on some of the historic pubs, such as The Crown Liquor Saloon and The Garrick. Many places have traditional Irish music playing every night, so watch out for some tunes (beers around $5).

 

At dinner time, go to Mourne Seafood Bar to try some of the amazing seafood caught in the seas off Belfast. It’s an informal spot where you can try all kinds of food at reasonable prices ($30).

 

After you’ve eaten, head back out to some more pubs or try a cocktail bar such as Love And Death, where you can sample some of the adventurous tipples dreamed up by master mixologists ($9 each).
