Belfast is the largest city in Northern Ireland, located in County Antrim and County Down, with a population of 3 million people. Historically, Belfast was the centre for the Irish linen industry, tobacco production, rope making and shipbuilding. Today it remains a centre for industry, as well as the business capital of Northern Ireland. Belfast takes its name from the Irish Béal Feirsde, meaning tidal rivermouth and referring to the mouth of the River Lagan on which the city sits. Belfast has been occupied since the Bronze Age, and there is much historical interest around the area. It grew into the commercial centre that it is today in the 18th and 19th centuries.
