We recently were guests on HMS Caroline, Belfast’s newest (and only floating) museum – and a venerable survivor of the Battle of Jutland. If you want to have a look at our in-depth review of HMS Caroline, see it on About.com’s Ireland Travel. The short version: “well worth going!” Including the Irish stew.
Here is a selection of images. As you may notice, the weather was atrocious on the day (well, so was most of the Irish summer of 2016, but me, Belfast and maritime events do have form in getting soaked anyway). Then again, warships in grey are grey in any weather, and a wet wooden deck is nicer to look at (though not that nice to walk on) any time!
By the way, HMS Caroline is moored just a short walk from Titanic Belfast – so why not make it a full day of maritime history?
