    Fantastic pub. Must visit!
    Absolutely mint pub, so much history and so many decorations to keep you staring for ages. Great craic with the locals too who told us that Gerry Adams used to work there which may have been why it was once bombed. You wouldn't have known it had been rebuilt so recently, it has great character and charm. Great Guinness, too, of course. A must in Belfast.

    Best In Northern Ireland!
    Very popular for a reason. Great atmosphere, huge selection of beverages, and very nice service. We were here on the day of the Belfast Marathon, so extra busy. The bar keeps managed everyone well, but the locals are so kind to make sure everyone gets their turn at the bar. Outside seating is also available. Thanks for a good time in a wonderful place!

    Big and Fun
    Great lively bar in the Cathedral area, it probably is packed every time it is open. Felt sorry for the Irish band playing in the corner who were drowned out by the drinkers. Another pub with over the top ambiance, it’s one of my favorites. Alas, no food.

    recommended to visit mid-week and during the day, as CRAZY busy on a saturday night!
    The Duke of York is highly recommended as a traditional Irish bar with live music and a friendly atmosphere. There are rooms full of memorabilia and every wall is busily decorated. The drinks on offer are mostly beers and whiskeys. Located in the busiest area in Belfast known as "Cathedral Quarter" so we knew it would be busy when we visited early one saturday night, however we were not prepared for how absolutely jam packed it was!! People were buying drinks and standing out in the alley/small street "Umbrella Street" it was that packed! So you couldn't even walk up Umbrella Street as too many people standing around with drinks, shoulder to shoulder! The Duke of York is notorious and high on the list for tourists to visit, but be warned we couldn't get anywhere near this pub on a weekend night. So we recommended to visit mid-week and during the day if you actually want to get a seat inside, have a drink and a look around and hear yourself think! (yes we are nearly 40 now and like to visit a pub to have a 'conversation' over drinks! haha)

We discovered this beautiful pub in a small side street.

Very nicely decorated, lots of beers and lots of whiskey on offer. It might take some time to try everything. Definitely a clear recommendation when visiting Belfast.

Around the corner is a whiskey shop where you can also buy many of the whiskeys from there.

Great place to have a drink--if you can find a seat. Very crowded the night we went and people were filling the street outside. Fortunately we found a table inside and as happened everywhere in Northern Ireland people started chatting to us straight away--great evening

Fantastic place! Very lively and crowded. We were lucky to snag a table. Loaded with memorabilia as decor. Live music - traditional Irish tunes while we were there. Tried to go back the next night and there was a line out the door. A must visit while in Belfast!

This is an iconic Belfast pub in a central location with a great vibe. Busy spot. We watched the rugby match at a table outside and it was very busy with a great atmosphere.
