Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Took the wife to see pretty women. The Grand opera house is a special location, we do love going here. Usually get centre circle seating as good distance from the stage and a good view. The seats can be a bit uncomfortable if sitting long but the sound and experience is second to none. Nice bar with view of street at intermission too.

    'New Ireland' was the funniest thing I've ever seen. Absolutely their best show so far!
    The Lyric is a lovely place.
    Drinks are dear but not 'need a mortgage dear'.

    I took my granddaughter to see rapunzel pantomime. I have to say the show was fantastic, she had a great time.

    The popcorn 🍿 overpriced and soft drink. seeing adults drinking alcohol at a children's pantomime was surprising to me. The light up toys where £6.oo bit expensive as well.

    In all she enjoyed herself .

    Recently went to the Ulster Hall for an Abba Waterloo story evening and we had a great time. My only gripe is that when we arrived the bar downstairs was closed and we had to go upstairs. Lids are removed from bottles for 'health and safety' yet we where allowed to go back downstairs with drinks in our hands which to me seemed quite unsafe.

    The open bottles also led to a lot of spillages. Two people in my close proximity's drinks went everywhere and the floor became really slippy.

    I pop in and out to use toilets here and after reading brochures,decided to attend a play.
    The staff are really nice and I enjoyed the Sam Cree play.
    But being disabled with bad knees,I found it a very uncomfortable experience.
    Two front row seats were reserved but they had board running along the front of the walk way area and the leg space was so small and if I tried to stretch out and rest my leg the board edge was sore on my leg.
    Pity about this and obviously it is not designed for such disability.
    But I plan to go back again. Toilets are clean and there is a coffee shop which opens during daytime.

    I went to the Duncairn for a gig - John Spillane and Lisa Loughrey. The venue is beautiful and the sound was great (owing to natural acoustics and sound engineer I imagine).

    The gig was the best I have been to in years. John Spillane is well established and his faithful followers in Belfast came out in force. Lisa Loughrey had her debut Belfast gig. Lisa and John (and Lisa’s band) also did a number of songs together at the end. It turned into a mini impromptu session.

    The crowd were satisfied and the venue allowed guests to make their way out slowly so that they could chat with friends and meet the artists.

    Above all- I was most impressed with how the acts were treated by the staff. They were well looked after and not at all taken for granted. Lisa Loughrey is new to the North, but that did not change how the Duncairn event organisers treated her and her band.

    Dublin venues stand to learn a lot from the lovely Duncairn.

    It was well worth the trip up from Dublin. I look forward to my next trip up to the Duncairn!

    Friendly atmosphere. Was great to see the Jazz singer whilst eating.
    Great cocktails. Food was super tasty - the French onion soup was especially delicious.
    Only downside was waiting a while for the bill.

    Visited last week while staying in Belfast, to see Bone machine.

    Didn’t particularly enjoy the gig but loved the venue, small & perfect for live music.

    Located in the Cathedral Quarter this is 2 venues in one: The Green Room & The Black Box.

    Staff were great, bar & security, and I’d be happy to see more music here.

    We had a really enjoyable evening when we went to see the production “Stuck in the Middle With You”. I am in awe of the 5 actors. They changed costumes and adopted believable accents to portray a range of characters whilst also moving their own props in between scenes. Well done to the writers for creating this play dealing with a difficult subject matter; policing during Northern Ireland’s Troubles, in a realistic but sensitive manner.

    We went to see a comedy show at this venue, we weren’t expecting much as it wasn’t heavily advertised and initially quite empty at first. Slowly but surely there was a small crowd of 20+ people, all up for a nervous laugh.
    The acts were brilliant! The headliner was a lady called Bronagh? She was excellent! As was the lady compère, and the 3 male acts…would recommend

    Have been coming here on and off for a good few years, most of the time its quite good if enot even better. Colin Murphy is my favourite host and I'd come to watch him alone. Sorry that sounded a bit creepy! But hes really good. They have some great acts on too be it local or visiting from Dublin or England. The best thing to do in Belfast on a Tuesday night for sure though

    Absolutely fabulous. We went to see Laoise Leahy on the 5th January and it was such a lovely way to celebrate the New Year. The venue is cosy and intimate without being squashed and the atmosphere was wonderful, not to mention the incredible talent of the performers! Definitely highly recommend, and make sure to get to the front for the best seats!
