I was advised by a staff member in the Ramada Hotel that this was an advertisement for a local nightclub ... in Belfast getting accurate information is not easy.

After looking at this you can discover Ulster Scots. I say this because the Discover Ulster-Scots Centre is situated on the ground floor of the Corn Exchange Building. "Ullans" or Ulster Scots is to be understood as the variety of the Scots language traditionally found in parts of Northern Ireland and Donegal.

Paddy McCann is a Belfast-based artist, whose work encompasses a wide range of disciplines, including painting, print and sculpture. He gained an MA from the University of Belfast in 1989.

A few days ago an official report by Tourism NI, a government sponsored agency, stated "Northern Ireland is currently not a sufficiently compelling or motivating destination for some visitors from the Republic even before Brexit is factored into the equation". Because my interest is street photography I do believe that Belfast has a lot to to offer but I do believe that the report is accurate because some aspects of the city are so over promoted that the destination appears to be a one-trick pony. In my opinion the Titanic is the one-trick pony. There are other attractions but they are poorly documented and in some cases the ones that are promoted are somewhat disappointing ... the Botanic Gardens is one example.

The buildings and structures of Belfast comprise many styles of architecture ranging from Edwardian through to state-of-the-art modern buildings like the Waterfront Hall. The city's beautiful Edwardian buildings are notable for their display of a large number of sculptures. Many of Belfast's Victorian landmarks, including the main Lanyon Building at Queens University in 1849, were designed by Sir Charles Lanyon.
