Great area to enjoy a range of bars and food

This is the area in Belfast to head to for great food and bars, some with traditional music. Not far at all from the shopping area.

I pass through this area usually Saturday or Sunday day time..not a lot happening with a lot of places closed during daytime. Perhaps some quirkie shops gallery etc would help.. I use it as a short cut from carpark Ro city centre. St Anne's sq ok but the little streets could do with some daytime excitment

By far the best area in the town for drinking. No trouble was seen but there were quite a few large groups of hens/stags

Pubs, food outlets, handiness to shops and great craic for families and couples visiting Belfast. Great atmosphere and shows off best of Belfast and Northern Ireland in one spot where everyone is just nice and looking out for each other.

Always a great night out in this quarter with interesting pubs, fine food and live music set amongst some absolutely stunning buildings, the people of this marvellous City are a bit special too!

The best area for nights out in Belfast and always good on a Saturday afternoon. Many of the bars have live music and if the weather is good (highly unlikely in Belfast) then you can sit outside several bars. Also good for a walk around to see some of the older cobbled streets. Lots of restaurants to eat in and... More

The Cathedral Quarter is a great place. St. Anne's cathedral is a stunning building with lots of history well worth a visit. The area has lots of quirky bars some with traditional music on at nights. An up and coming place to spend your night.

The pictures of the cathedral frontage led us to believe that it was a vibrant area, but when we arrived there appeared to be nothing there other than the cathedral itself. The building itself is quite majestic, as are most cathedrals.
