The few establishments I visited there, made me feel welcome. I don't remember having so much conversations and laughter with strangers. A few recommendations. I have eaten at this two restaurants: -... More

Definitely a must do. This is a very vibrant part of the city which comes alive at night. Everyone we met recommended this part of Belfast for food and drinking, and they were right

Belfast's Cathedral quarter is said to be a hip and trendy area to go to see some smashing architecture and have a good time.

Impressive! We were thrilled to be there whilst a famous choir from England was practising for the evening performance. The acoustics of this Cathedral were unbelievable good - apparently attributed to the Canadian Redwood timbers used.

Not much in it at all, needs major redevelopment and media positivity, its on the periphery of where things are happening in Belfast, hopefully the city and NI tourism can come up with something, its quite dreary at times, some nice pubs but close early.

St. Patrick's Church is free and very nicely done. St. Ann's Cathedral you have to pay for and it is not much different.
