Pretty little cobbled streets, amazing street art and the best bars. Must see while you're visiting belfast - famous street with the lights and umbrellas, and do not miss out on visiting the dirty onion, harp bar and the duke of york.

Although often very busy, Cathedral Quarter has an amazing atmosphere. Mixture of bars with irish music daily and restaurants with a wide variety of cuisines to choose from. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, highly recommended for a pint or ten!

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.
