A Pub Crawl in Belfast with some of the best traditional pubs where you can drink the best Guinness while listening to traditional music!
Madden’s bar – This little off-the-beaten-path bar is quite the find in Belfast. Non-touristy and incredibly local, you’ll see all sorts of local wall decorations. The atmosphere has just the right amount of grunge and there is live Irish music every night. It has a great range of drinks and has an amazing fireplace to add to the atmosphere.
McHughs – This is the oldest pub and one of the oldest buildings in Belfast. It dates from 1711. It’s now a busy urban venue with a 100-seater restaurant, but the building itself dates back over 300 years.
The Crown – located in Great Victoria Street. Refurbished to a high standard in 1885, it is an outstanding example of a Victorian gin palace, and is one of Northern Ireland’s best-known pubs.
