“Unique place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

The Culturlann is a fascinating place to visit, as it is at the centre of Belfast's "urban Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking area). There's a lot going on in the building (live music, theatre, workshops, exhibitions) and visitors can also have a snack or a full meal in the cafe, which does lovely food, and browse in the bookshop. There's a new extension which has made it even more visitor-friendly - it houses a gallery and also a permanent exhibition about the history of the Irish language in Belfast. Well worth a visit.

“lovely find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Found this fabulous oasis in the heart of the Falls. What can I say except to endorse everything said by "eamonmor" Proinsias" and "mariposa" We also have enjoyed good food, great art exhibitions and gigs in the evening. The place has a wonderful atmosphere.

“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.
