Great location and fantastic bars and restaurants, within walking distance from Victoria Square and Castle court shopping centers so ideal place for shopping and entertainment. Give the yard bird a rattle for food and also the bunsen which does fantastic burgers!

If you are looking for a pub, go to the Cathedral quarter and you are sure to find a good one. Most have musicians at night so it's a lot of fun.

Lovely part of Belfast. Culture, bars, restaurants, cobbled streets and a buzz about the place. Plenty to see and do.

Hadn't been here for over 6 years and was amazed at how many great bars there are, both old and new. All had live music, and quite a few had court yards with beer gardens.

Yep bars are busy enough. Some live music around. Probably best to try the thirsty goat or dirty onion. Also the Spaniard but it can get very crowded.
