Irish Heartbeat Tours proudly presents Van Morrison - 'Brown Eyed Girl' Tour.
For nearly 60 years Sir George Ivan Morrison (Van The Man) has literally provided a soundtrack for the lives of many people from across the world. The 'Brown Eyed Girl' Irish Heartbeat Tour gives the opportunity for people to discover the places in Belfast that has inspired 'local' songs such as Brown Eyed Girl, Bright Side of the Road, Cleaning Windows, On Hyndford Street, Orangefield, Madame George, A Sense of Wonder and the iconic Cyprus Avenue plus many others all of which are evocations of his life.
In East Belfast we will take in the following points of interest and a must-see for any Vanatic / Vanorak - East Bread Street, Elmgrove Primary School, Abetta Parade, The Hollow (Beechie River & Connswater), Hyndford Street, Grand Parade, Orangefield Park, Belfast & County Down Railway, Cyprus Avenue and St Donard's Church. Along the way there may the chance for some 'soul food' such as a Paris bun, gravy ring, wagon wheel, barmbrack, snowball or even a pastie supper!
The Van Morrison 'Brown Eyed Girl' Irish Heartbeat Tours meeting point is outside the EastSide Visitor Centre, C S Lewis Square, Newtownards Road, East Belfast and costs £90 total per tour group (industry standard set-rate). We prefer small intimate groups of 1-4 people but can take further numbers on application.
I'm sure once you have experienced the Brown Eyed Girl tour you'll listen to and appreciate Van's songs in a totally different manner...my mama told me they'd be Days Like This!!
