Just before midnight on April 14, 1912, RMS Titanic collided with an iceberg in the North Atlantic with 2,224 souls and crew aboard. Memorialized in partnership with the Titanic Foundation, Titanic Belfast commemorates the ship’s heritage for future generations while also preserving Belfast’s industrial past.

At one time one of the world’s leading shipbuilders, Harland & Wolff Drawing Office designed Titanic and over 1,000 other ships, providing the setting for the hotel. Billed as the most authentic Titanic hotel experience, guests can view compelling memorabilia on display like the old Telephone Exchange – which received the ship’s first S.O.S.

The £28 million renovation features a dining room with dramatic views of the historic slipways where Titanic was constructed. 119 luxury bedrooms offer up history and Art Deco modernity in first-class spaciousness with beautiful bygone-chic bathrooms, restored parquet floors and original tiles.

Enjoy a hearty Irish breakfast before exploring the shipyard and journey to the depths of the Atlantic to learn Titanic’s mysteries in the city of her birth. Top off the day with locally sourced cuisine prepared by award-winning chefs in a grand dining room or exclusive intimate private setting.
