A charming pub, unbelievably ornate inside, the decor being so typical of theatre designer Frank Matcham, who designed this pub for somewhere to drink whilst the nearby Belfast Grand Opera House (another of his designs) was under construction. The Guinness here was sensational, just like how I remember it in Dublin! And the bar staff really friendly and happy to... More

The Crown bar it is definitely the heart of Belfast. It is more than a bar, it's a landmark. The authentic design is spectacular and unique in itself: the tiles, the vivid colors, the booths. We loved the blend between the touristic vibe and the local flavor. Even if the bar is quite popular among tourists, it really belongs to... More
