Was recently on a trip home and called in for a beer. Haven't been here for twenty years and it's a museum place of a bar inside Fascinating to look around inside and they have a good selection of beers too. Was there early evening and it was quiet but steady. Really lovely and much better than many other more... More

Found this bar on a walking tour, apparently it was where Gerry Adams had his 1st job. The bar is well decorated you could spend the time just reading the walls, we found the staff to be friendly and helpful, the bathroom is upstairs and was clean and again the decor up the stairs all well worth a look.

Located in a little by-road in the cathedral quarter, this is the place to go if you love a buzzy crowd and a happening experience. The inside is beautifully crafted, and pretty big but fills up easy. Went on a Friday and there was some good live music by a solo guitarist. Great bartenders who were more than happy to... More

If you're after a historic pub in Belfast, you have to visit the Duke of York. Not only does it have a immense kerb appeal, but the service is really friendly and it's great fun.

Visited in a small group on a Saturday evening and the place was bouncing, primarily because of a group of stag night guys that were in fine fettle and quickly became the cabaret. No live music as pub was too busy but good mixture of 70's, 80's & 90's music on the sound system. Took a while to get served... More

Old style irish bar full of past memorabilia. Good lively atmosphere and charm. Can be very busy. Set in the"entries" which has become a popular haunt for tourists and locals. Bar has good local beers and whiskey plus European beers too. You can sit outside and take in the cobbled streets with Salvador Dali looking down from painted murals. A... More
