The somewhat secreted are of traditional Irish pubs in this quiet corner of Belfast. We joined Irish friends at the Duke Of York, obviously well known as when we asked someone where the street was he knew what pub we were going to. A number of narrow streets, where much entertainment is to be found, and during the day, the... More

So this is how it used to look! Good pubs, live music readily available in some of them. Good food to be had locally too

...with lots of cafes and bars. Could do with other small businesses to pull further attraction to the area eg art showrooms, pop up shops, etc. just to keep it local and current.

The main attraction is the Cathedral, which is a very interesting building. Apart from that the area isn't that exciting though no doubt that will change when the planned university campus locates to the area. Well worth a visit but don't expect too much.

Ok-not my usual scene, but everyone was welcoming and friendly, despite any of our party being LGTG. I hope they all enjoy their weekend and receive the same understanding and tolerance as they showed us.

There are new murals of notable figures in Northern Irish life on the walls near the Duke of York pub, and its really worth checking out the cathedral (of course) as well as the pubs and restaurants - old and very new - in the area. Its a huge improvement from what it was, and Belfast is pretty small, so... More

For the past number of years, development in the Cathedral Quarter of Belfast has fostered creative communities and humming pubs and cafes. Catering for the artistic and creatives, gay & straight nightclubs, cafes and restaurants, bars and nightclubs, check out this nugget of Belfast
