A changed Belfast!

This is an area of Belfast worth visiting. Vibrant restaurants, street musicians, interesting pubs and a great area to walk around just off Royal Avenue.

Plenty of choice for bars and restaurants. Lots of different quirky little bars in the Cathedral Quarter and all close together so you can have a little pub crawl. There is plenty of choice for food, but all restaurants seemed to be busy so perhaps best to make a booking.

It is definitely worth taking a walk around this area, especially the small lane ways. There is a lot of interesting things to see.

We had read that the Cathedral quarter was lively and up and coming but I think this May just be in the evenings. We visited during the day and there was not really anything to see.

Lots of places to eat, drink and sleep. From 5 star plus of the Merchant Hotel to the boutique hotel at the end of the Waring Street. Small venues and large venues supply the entertainment. Concerts in the Black Box then the shabby chic look of pubs, Make sure you look around the wee streets for the Duke of York... More

Such a lovely part of Belfast, when the Festival of Fools is on it is great. Full oflife and hustle and bustle. Lovely restaurants, bars and the MAc which is always a great experience.

This is a great area of the city for pubs, restaurants and shopping. Go to the John Hewitt pub for great atmosphere and traditional music. If the weather is good, sit outside at The Dirty Onion and don't miss the incredible interior of The Union Bar. It's just fun to wander around and see what's going on. By the way,... More
