“Belfast has a warmth and friendliness that completely
upended my prejudices. I have been a regular visitor to
the city for the last 20 years, drawn back by the
audiences, the life of the city itself and the beauty of
the scenery that surrounds it."
                Michael Palin, Comedian/Actor/Author/Travel Writer

“It’s always great coming back to Belfast because it’s
like a second home for me and the people are just like I
remembered them when I first moved there – kind,
great and enthusiastic.”
                                   Katie Melua, Singer/Songwriter

"I love the place and it is so much nicer than D… - you
don't get harassed by people as much. People in Belfast
know how to have a good time and they don't have any
ego with them."
                         Shane Filan, Singer with pop group Westlife

"I came to Belfast to see if it was a cool place to spend
a couple of days, and I’ve had as much fun here as any
city I’ve been to. I’ve also learnt some stuff and there’s
fantastic scenery really close by, so for me, it’s a really
well rounded place to spend a few days in.”
                    Rajesh Mirchandani, BBC One Holiday Programme
