Stayed in this area for five days, it's a superb place to stay for exploring! There are plenty of attractions to see within a short walking distance of each other. And belfast City is literally a stones throw away, I would definitely recommend staying in this area if you wish to explore what Belfast has to offer!

The Renaissance of Belfast continues with the Cathedral Quarter. The main attraction is the Cathedral, go inside and see the spire from the inside, it's breathtaking. Also try the restaurant s and bars.

Then you have to visit The Duke of York pub - olde worlde. Set in a stunningly well kept alley with wonderful murals detailing... More

This area of Belfast has been dilapidated for a long time, but in recent years has seen and explosion of refurbishments, make-overs, new builds etc making it my favourite part of Belfast's city centre. There are original narrow cobble stone streets - you can just imaging horses & carts clip-clopping along these! They are a high-heel logistical nightmare though, so... More

Lots of great bars to pop into to get warm as you enjoy the stroll through an architecturally rich part of the city. Really good way to spend a few hours......
