We had the absolute pleasure of spending a night as guests at the Titanic Hotel Belfast to try out the “Gourmet Getaway” package on offer. This hotel experience had all the hallmarks of an ideal staycation: quick and easy travel; luxurious accommodation; historic and cultural attractions; and, of course, gorgeous food and drinks.
Located in the heart of Titanic Quarter, just minutes from Belfast City Centre, the hotel provides an ideal location for anyone looking for a Belfast city getaway. This heritage hotel, formerly the headquarters of Harland & Wolff shipbuilders, is home to the magnificent dual Victorian Drawing Offices where hundreds of ocean liners were designed, including the world-famous RMS Titanic. The award-winning hotel features 119 luxury bedrooms with an Art Deco nautical theme.
Adrian McNally, General Manager, Titanic Hotel Belfast said: “I am delighted to see the hotel and district bustling with life once again. The hotel has been certified with the UK industrywide standard ‘We’re Good to Go’ accreditation, so our guests have utter peace of mind when staying at Titanic Hotel Belfast. We are also fortunate to be home to Drawing Office Two, the main hotel bar, and heart of the hotel. It is an incredibly vast space, allowing plenty of room for guests to dine at ease with social distancing considerations in place.”
As part of the Gourmet Getaway, we were greeted with in-room drinks and welcome plate of nibbles. After nipping out into the Titanic Quarter for a walk around the Maritime Mile, Belfast’s historic waterfront, and popping into town to explore St. George’s Market, we returned to the hotel for a pre-dinner cocktail in Drawing Office Two, followed by a six-course dinner in the Wolff Grill, Ireland’s Hotel Restaurant of the Year 2020. It’s something special to enjoy fine dining with views towards the historic slipways where Titanic and her sister ships Olympic and Britannic were constructed.
The menu in Wolff Grill changes monthly and celebrates seasonal Irish ingredients. We opted for the wine pairing, curated by the in-house sommelier and perfectly paired to each course. The next morning, we enjoyed a Titanic-sized breakfast before strolling only a few metres outside of the hotel to the Titanic Belfast museum — a must-visit if you’re in the area!
