Feeling adventurous? Then it’s time to hit the road and start exploring the city! We suggest you do it in style with our very own Bullitt Bikes, available free of charge for our guests. Check out our recommendations on cycling the city below.
There are loads of great things to see and do in Belfast city centre. We’ve marked a few of our favourites on our Bullitt Bike Map – from foodie favourites to music venues and tourist hotspots.
If you’d like to venture a little further, we recommend leaving the city behind and getting back to nature on one of our beautiful bike paths. Our favourite is the Lagan and Lough Cycle Way, also known as the Lagan towpath. From the city centre you’ll cycle through the University Quarter, where you can check out Queen’s University and the Botanic Gardens, and then on to the Lagan towpath that meanders through meadows and forest parks alongside the Lagan canal.
Stop off for a breather at the Lock Keeper’s Inn near Shaw’s Bridge before continuing your journey past the National Trust’s Minnowburn Beeches and Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park.
We recommend ending your journey at Hilden Brewery – Ireland’s oldest independent brewery. There you can take a tour of the brewery or just enjoy some tasty craft beers and delicious food in the brewery restaurant. Keep an eye out for the Hilden Beer and Music Festival which takes place every year at the brewery towards the end of August.
From there, you can either cycle back or catch a train from Hilden to Belfast City Centre. The Lagan and Lough Cycle Way is a mostly flat, off-road route and it is roughly 11 miles from Belfast City Centre to Hilden Brewery.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Taylor & Clay will hit the spot whether you’re after a sneaky snack or a full-on feast
