The Hilton Belfast is located in the heart of Belfast and is a great option for a family stay. We enjoyed a weekend here a few years ago and loved it. Belfast is brimming with family attractions including indoor skydiving at Vertigo,

Ireland’s award-winning Science and Discovery Centre W5, and make sure you take a spin to Colin Glen Forest Park to enjoy their Gruffalo Trail, ziplines and alpine coaster.
