The Culturlann is at the heart of what is fast becoming Belfast Irish language centre or Gaeltacht on the West Belfast Falls Road. The bookshop is extensive and restaurant has a very laid back atmosphere with excellent very resonable food.

Had a tour of the museum part of this, which is interesting, but could do with more exhibits. The cafe and shop are well worth a visit, and the staff are very friendly.

West Belfast's cultural powerhouse, the Culturlann is the place to go for all things Irish, including art, music and books. In the middle of the Falls Road, a flashpoint during the three-decade-long conflict known locally as The Troubles, the Culturlann, in a tastefully renovated former church, is the beating heart of Irish-language culture in Belfast. Expect the staff and many... More

The unionist/loyalist community could learn a thing or two about celebrating their culture in an inclusive manner. This place hosts art exhibitions and musical events celebrating Irish culture and has a lovely gift shop and cafe

There's a little bookstore where most of the books are in the Irish language and a few nicer Irish gifts, such as jewelry, scarves and pottery, are offered. The cafe has delicious desserts, scones and tea. This is a real bit of Irish culture. You will hear people speaking in Irish here.
