In addition to that I recently had a night out in the Quarter and loved it! There are plenty of restaurants and bars so you'll never find a place overcrowded. It's near to... More

Old pubs and restaurants, great night life, a real atmosphere. Great to see Belfast enjoying it's self after the 'Troubles'. This area is a bit like the Merchant City in Glasgow, and if you like to be in the middle of ''it'' , this is the area to stay in.

The cathedral quarter encompasses St Anne's and many other very pleasant parts of the city. There are a number of bars and restaurants worth visiting too.

Went for an early morning jog here, it was really peaceful. Not far from the city centre, if you go on a run at 6:30 you can be at Starbucks for opening :)

My favourite quarter, so many awesome bars and restaurants in this area. Cobbled streets and gentrification galore. Its a hipsters dream. Think shoreditch, think brighton lanes. The MAC is a cool art gallery/performance space. Limited art, lots of lounge space, and the modern architecture of the bulding itself is cool. Lots of hidden street art in alleyways, carparks, stairwells.

We visited on a lovely sunny day ,walking along the cobbled street where to our surprise a wedding was taking place The bells were tolling adding more to the atmosphere. We were allowed to walk around and sit quietly at the back of this wonderful cathedral that has had a lot of sympathetic restoration work done Everyone of the males... More

Have eaten in most of the eateries in the area, including one which was previously my old office, and have yet to be disappointed. There is something for all tastes. From a la carte dining to coffee and a scone. Take in a play or spend some time quietly in the Cathedral. It's the place to be.
