This morning we boarded the flight WW852 to Dublin. When we arrived in Dublin, the tour bus was already waiting. While we were busy loading our luggage into the bus, one of the ladies in our group was pick-pocketed and lost her wallet.

We travelled direct from Dublin to Belfast in North Ireland. In Belfast we had grilled lamb and chicken for lunch at Nora’s Palace Restaurant and performed our prayers there. After lunch we visited the Titanic Belfast.

Titanic Belfast is a visitor attraction and a monument to Belfast's maritime heritage on the site of the former Harland & Wolff shipyard in the city's Titanic Quarter where the RMS Titanic was built. It tells the stories of the ill-fated Titanic, which hit an iceberg and sank during her maiden voyage in 1912, and her sister ships RMS Olympic and HMHS Britannic. The building contains more than 12,000 sq metres of floor space, most of which is occupied by a series of galleries, plus private function rooms and community facilities.
