“Céad Mile Failte: A genuine Irish Welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Céad Mile Failte go Béal Feirste! ( A hundred Thousand Welcomes to Belfast!) The Culturlann located on the famous Falls Road is a cultural gem which belies Béal Feirste/Belfast's traditional image as a dreary, monolingual and sometimes dangerous backwater.This genuinely Irish Cultural Centre echoes with music, dance and lively conversations in both Irish and English, plus a myriad of other languages spoken by dozens of tourists from mainland Europe, the Americas and further afield. Go for the 'craic', have a snack and a chat with the friendly, well-informed staff , admire the works of art , buy some genuine Irish souvenirs, pop in to the well-stocked bookshop..and most importantly, tell your friends to do the same.

You wont regret it.

“A place apart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Cultúrlann is emblematic of Belfast’s capacity for evolution and preservation. Located within a beautiful old church in the West of the City (Falls Road), Cultúrlann guarantees great food in a rich and vibrant atmosphere. There is always something to see or do: wonderful exhibitions, books to peruse or indulge in some people watching – spend an afternoon observing the animated conversation of the Irish speakers having coffee/lunch and you may well will be tempted to join in.

“What a friendly place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

Always busy, the food and staff in the Culturlann are just great! Chowder on Fridays is normally good, and has been fabulous the last few weeks. Great place to go for a break and the floor staff are always cheerful and ready for some craic...
Lovely gift shop and very interesting art gallery on site- worth a detour for a visit!

“How can this be judged No. 2 on only 34 reviews”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Great promise but hard to believe that this beats City Hall and the new Titanic Centre.

Time will tell if it lives up to its promise. But good start.

“First class space at the heart of the Gaeltacht Quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Culturlann MacAdam O Fiaich is a first class community space at the heart of the Gaeltacht Quarter. You can get a bite to eat, shop at the bookstore, take an Irish language class, view an art exhibition or listed to some traditional Irish music. The people are warm and welcoming. It's a very special place in Belfast.
