“Push the shamrock aside and meet the new Belfast – hip historical and happening”
“Belfast city rocks harder than an avalanche of boulders tumbling through a ravine”
NME Student guide
Prospective students will be reassured to learn that the international media has described Belfast as "Europe's friendliest - and trendiest - regional capital." The Times of London has also named the city as one of its top 12 world travel destinations. The Lonely Planet Travel Guide Series has named Belfast as one of its top 10 must-see destinations of 2007. Such high praise is no longer unexpected in a city that is effectively casting off its old troubled image.
