This pub is lovely, especially the restaurant part upstairs where we had dinner. The burger was super delicious and we loved the beers we chose. The only negative thing is that our waitress wasn't too friendly. Definitely a great spot if you're looking for a place for dinner in Belfast. And better if you reserve a table on a weekend... More

Called in while in Belfast for a Guinness. Pub was warm, welcoming and friendly. As we settled down for our Guinness a group of musicians started playing Irish music in the corner. More and more kept coming in and joining the group! What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon .

Came across McHugh's by accident from the outside you think a bit rough looking. But we went in a really quaint place the staff are excellent and a good menu. When the food came was really delicious. Will go back the next time we are in Belfast.

We stopped in for dinner on our way back from the Titanic Museum. It was wonderful. The previous night we sought a pub with traditional live Irish music and didn't find it. We walked into McHugh's and found a packed pub, delicious local cuisine, and traditional live Irish music. Score, hat trick!
