CIE Tours is taking advantage of the upcoming opening of the much anticipated ‘Titanic Belfast’ attraction in Northern Ireland.
The centre, which is built adjacent to the dockyards where the ill-fated ship was built over 100 years ago, pays homage to the wreckage and offers historical perspective and interaction for visitors.
In accordance with the upcoming opening, CIE Tours is adding a stop at ‘Titanic Belfast’ to 16 of its Ireland and Ireland/Britain escorted tours.
