This area is full of quirky shops, bars and restaurants. With winding lanes and cobbled streets it's a lovely place to wander. Comes alive at night .

Head to the Cathedral Quarter to see all the old pubs of Belfast. Highlights are the Duke of York and John Hewitt pubs. And go eat chicken upstairs at the Dirty Onion!

Filled with lively pubs and amazing restaurants. Most attractions are within walking distance of the Cathedral Quarter. Great shopping within a couple of blocks.

Belfast is such a lovely city to visit - I don't normally like cities, but its friendly, clean, lots of great shops and restaurants and of course bars. Great place to just wander around.

I was greeted by a gentleman with a friendly handshake and allowed to wander on my own and most importantly take all the photos I wanted. A wonderful building, not specially old, but the Titanic Pall was the most memorable. Thank you St Anne's.

Rest of the area rather run down. There have been several attempts to liven the area up with on street Entertainers pop up shops and few trendy bars. A good lick of paint would do more to clean and brighten the place up. Take time to visit Bagel Bagel for a delicious bagel n coffee.

Brilliant for a night out, with a mixture of bars,some more traditional than others. Some lovely restaurants in the area. The non political paintings in this area are stunning.

The cathedral is very interesting and the guides very friendly. The audio tour is well paced and hi-tech. Nearby is good coffee and cake in the Cathedral Quarter behind the cathedral.
