We're the MAC, Belfast's new arts venue. We select, create and mix up music, theatre, dance and art - bringing you the very best of local and international talent, all under one roof. Our world-class building is situated in the heart of Belfast's bustling Cathedral Quarter, right behind Saint Anne's Cathedral. We are home to international art exhibitions, the very best in live theatre, experimental works and all manner of weird and wonderful goings-on. One visit and you'll discover that the MAC has something for all ages and interests. We hope you love our building as much as we do.

Used to visit routinely when I lived in Belfast. Had some good art collections in residency and the restaurant isn't bad either. Best description would be a mini Tate modern.

Stopped for lunch, which was delightful. Terrace outside facing the cathedral is nice for lunch. There's a docking station for Belfast Bikes outside Ulster Uni

Wonderful building housing many interesting installations, these change so keep an eye to the programme/website, with theatre space and a restaurant on the ground floor- well worth the visit when you're wandering around the Cathedral quarter.
