Fun in Belfast
‘What’s the craic?’, you may hear your new friends say. It means, ‘what’s happening?’ – there’s always something fun going on here, from gigs and sports events to unique festivals such as the Festival of Light.
A city with innovation at its heart, technological advances infiltrate every sector, helping to build our competitiveness on the global stage. There are almost 900 international companies located in Northern Ireland, making Belfast a hub for US trade.
There’s plenty happening outside the city, including the famous filming locations for the HBO series Game of Thrones, the awe-inspiring Giant’s Causeway – voted the UK’s best Heritage Attraction – and the Mourne Mountains, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty canonised as CS Lewis’ Narnia.
INTO Queen’s even have their own monthly social programme which you can get involved with to meet new people and explore new places. The programme is organised by INTO Student Social Assistants, and prices for activities vary depending on the event, from free to a maximum of £50 to attend.
