Culture, history, music, folklore and the great outdoors form the basis of a number of exciting new visitor experiences in Northern Ireland.
With Belfast recently named as the first UNESCO City of Music on the island of Ireland, a pipeline of musical experiences is in development.
First up is Belfast UNESCO City of Music Walking Tour, a new guided tour that aims to share the city’s amazing music story. Led by local music expert, Dolores Vischer, the tour visits places that have strong connections with key musical events.
Beginning at the Ulster Hall, which has hosted many famous performers, and stopping at pubs, arenas and a historic church, the tour shares stories and anecdotes about musicians from Ruby Murray and Rory Gallagher to Led Zeppelin and Dexys Midnight Runners, exploring the city’s musical history across all genres. The tour ends with a live performance in the Oh Yeah Music Centre.
