I paid a visit to Belfast recently, and one really has the impression that Belfast is a larger city than Dublin.
How come Belfast has a much more interesting skyline than Dublin. Why is Dublin so bland compared to other cities of similar size such as Liverpool and Manchester (although Greater Manchester claims a population of 3.5 million)?

probably because they have more taller buildings in belfast giving it the appearance of being larger. I agree though belfast does look bigger then dublin even glasgow looks a lot bigger and its simply because of the number of high rise buildings in both cities.

Belfast doesn’t seem larger. It is a Victorian city – it is bulkier alright. But it ‘feels’ smaller to me every time I go. Less busy, fewer people, slower pace.
