Great place to eat and drink with a very laid back vibe. Can get very busy at the weekends but that's not a bad thing, depends on the crowd I suppose.

Thriving with life and culture, the Cathedral Quarter is the hub of activity in Belfast. Filled with Pubs, live music and cool hangouts, it is definitely the place to be. Thoroughly recommend the John Hewitt pub!

The Cathedral Quarter has reinvented itself. No longer shabby and unwelcoming it has become a magnet for locals and tourists alike. Fun murals, cobbled streets excellent eateries offering broad choices. For those who enjoy young music or simply recall the Undertones and the more recent Snow Patrol, "Oh yeah" is worth dropping into. The War Memorial is a small Museum... More

A great vibrant part of a city that has had it's fair share of troubles. Visit Belfast today though and its unrecognisable from even 10-15 years ago. This area has seen major redevelopment including the mac theatre, one of the most modern theatres in the uk. There are also some great restaurants apearrimg and quant bars mixed among modern haunts... More

Lots of bars and resturants to cater for all. Also a walk through St Anne's cathedral and its history will give an insite to belfasts past.

As a citizen of this city I appreciate any attempts made to move it forward and so is the case with the Cathedral Quarter. Whilst not exactly being vibrant or cosmopolitan it is gathering a few decent places to eat and drink in one area. It is usually easily negotiated by locals who have enough street sense to know where... More

Beautiful old buildings and architecture. We wandered through taking in the magnificence and soaked up the atmosphere. Plenty of watering holes too if you are in need of refreshment.
