3. The pubs (Great Craic)

The Crown Liquor Saloon, a traditional pub, known for its eclectic range of real ales and classic pub food. With ten snugs featuring original gunmetal plates for striking matches, an antique bell for alerting staff and original hanging gas lamps, it really is a gem of a pub. Another great pub is the Duke of York in Cathedral quarter. With superb décor, rare artefacts and beautiful antique mirrors, take a unique glimpse into the city’s past. Down a cobbled alleyway this traditional pub is the perfect place to sample the authentic taste of Northern Ireland. Order an Irish whiskey or a pint of creamy stout and have a chat with students, hipsters, tourists and locals. In fact, anyone could pop in for some “craic”. ( a good time)

7. Divis & Black Mountain

The highest coffee shop and best view of Belfast. The mountains rest in the heart of the Belfast Hills, which provide the backdrop to the city’s skyline. The opening of a new £500,000 walking trail on the mountains looming over the city means hikers and sightseers will now be able to enjoy a spectacular panorama of Belfast. For 50 years, these mountains were forbidden territory because the Ministry of Defence used Divis for reconnaissance, but it has been opened up to the public since it was acquired by the National Trust in 2005 and now has it’s very own barn coffee shop.

8. A food lover’s dream

Now acknowledged as one of the leading food cities in the UK and Ireland, Belfast’s food offering is developing all the time. It’s not just about the talented chefs that have revolutionised the food scene here, but the fantastic local produce they use, like our acclaimed fish, seafood, beef and lamb. Discover our unique food and drink traditions – our famous breads, old-fashioned sweet making, our favourite Belfast brew and the craft beer scene. Belfast offers everything from fine dining, brasseries and bistros to gastro pubs, cafes and coffee shops.

9. Culture Night

Belfast’s biggest and boldest cultural celebration.
200+ events, 100+ venues and over 30,000 people in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter. Thousands flock to the streets to celebrate about all that’s great about Belfast all in one night.  The whole of the city centre becomes an enchanting stage. Music, dance, comedy and art take over. It really is a night to experience.

  3. Go Giants!! By far the best ticket in town sports wise – all age groups from babies to OAPs are there, in comfort with the nicest, friendliest players! The Ulster rugby players are learning from what the Giants have been doing for years and have only recently started to get up close to their fans – so that is a plus! All other games look SO SLOW after a Giant’s match!! They definitely have earned their place in the Top 10 thanks Love Belfast!!!!!!!!!
