Belfast is constantly abuzz with fun things to do. Belfast has a constant stream of exciting activities and a lot of world-class fun attractions that will inspire even the most jaded explorer. For starters, check out Pirates Adventure Golf. Let your inner Tiger Woods run wild while getting in some practice at Ireland's only themed adventure golf center. Two landscaped courses provide plenty of fun across 36 holes of miniature golf. Avail of the chance to win a "Golden Doubloon" and a free game by beating "Blackbeard's Adventure" or "The Captain's Challenge." Or set sail on a ghostly 20-foot pirate schooner, through waterfalls and fountains; as long as you remember to keep your eye on the ball.
Ballyholme Beach is now Bangor's largest sandy beach following the transformation of the marina area throughout the 1990s. Depending on the tide, bathers can walk out to sea for several hundred meters before the water reaches their waists. Ballyholme is also Bangor's wind-surfing paradise. The beach is ideal for families and has a plentiful supply of sandcastle-building materials. Just behind the beach is a large grassy area for further fun and games.
If you're wondering whether your enthusiasm for all things Irish is due to the Ulster blood coursing through your veins, or just the Guinness you've been drinking, try to find your ancestors through the Public Records Office. This is the main source of manuscript information for genealogical research in Ulster. Dig in to a daunting 53 kilometers of documents dating back to the early 17th century, which can be investigated further at your leisure in the reading room. So, go ahead, enjoy these fun things to do in Belfast; after all, this is the city that inspired Narnia.
