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!

Really quirky, Authentic Belfast social scene. Lots of bars, restaurants, pubs and live music venues. Very quiet in the day a night out area definitely. Must go to this area to walk around even if not going to bars.

This is the main area for nightlife. Lot of people having a great time especially on Friday and Saturdays, a lot quieter on Sunday. The whole of the city centre is walkable. Lots of shops if you like that sort of thing. Too many pubs...More

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.
