Belfast Tourism Partnership Announced
Fancy a place where you can spend quality time with your close friends and family that isn’t your own home? A luxury, secluded space where your every need is taken care of, where you can safely enjoy a meal, take leisurely walks over idyllic waterways and perhaps even take in a spot of sightseeing on an iconic double decker bus? A partnership with leading tour operator City Sightseeing Belfast has created a series of fantastic ‘staycation’ packages for Summer 2020. Each tailor-made overnight or weekend package comes complete with evening meal, optional day trips to iconic tourist destinations across Northern Ireland, and fully cooked breakfast delivery.
The new “Staycation” packages will operate from Belfast’s Obel building where Dream operate over 60 serviced apartments. Thought to be the first-of-their-kind offering in Northern Ireland during lockdown, the apartments offer deep cleaned and fully sanitised apartments, complete with self-check-in, secure car parking, desk, super-fast WIFI and fully equipped kitchen. The one and two bedroom apartments also have smart TV, washing machine, clean linen delivered to your door and 24/7 telephone support. All apartments are pet friendly.
Speaking about the new partnership Paul Cunningham, Managing Director, City Sightseeing Belfast said: “We are absolutely delighted to be announcing this fantastic partnership with Dream Apartments.
“The past few weeks and months have presented us with huge challenges, but we now want to look forward and plan for a new path for both our staff and customers and give the people of Northern Ireland staycations to look forward to.
“We are planning towards early July for commencement of the offering and indeed the reopening of our Belfast City Sightseeing Open Top Hop On/Hop Off Bus Tour which includes iconic tourist hotsports such as Titanic Belfast and Stormont. Our Tour Buses which include Giants Causeway and Antrim Coast Tour as well as the Game of Thrones Tour Locations Tour should also be operational by then also.
“The packages we have put together with Dream offer our customers, both old and new, an opportunity to stay in a new, luxury ‘home from home’ environment and to take in the sights right here in our own fantastic country.”
Tom concluded: “I love Belfast, it has always been a resilient city, we find new ways of doing things, pulling together and coming out stronger. We want to play our part in that.”
