For the Ireland leg of our journey, we had to catch a ferry from Scotland to Belfast. We arrived at the ferry terminal in Troon (Scotland) early and found a place to have some breakfast. We drove onto the ferry and once the car had been locked up below, we made ourselves comfortable in the lounge for the trip.
It was looking like a grey drizzly day however, the ferry trip was very quick, arriving in Larne (Northern Ireland) just two hours later and before we knew it we were instructed to make our way to our vehicles. We were impressed by how organised the whole process was, quick, efficient and very well managed.
It took an hour from the ferry terminal to arrive in Belfast. We checked into our hotel, which was quite central and once settled we planned our walking itinerary for the day.
The walk ended up being huge covering a large part of the city. We loved the old buildings, so much history and character in a small space.
A building on College Square.
Assembly Buildings Conference Centre was built in 1905 as the headquarters of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland.
City Hall and City Hall’s Garden of Remembrance.
St Annes Cathedral.
After 82 days of walking, Bec’s Converse finally had to be retired. So we did some retail therapy in the main shopping mall and grabbed some replacements.
We headed back to the hotel, dropped of our shopping and made our way to the conveniently located pub across the road for dinner.
