music on a monday

Hi there, we'r planning a trip to Belfast in May, we land on monday morning, have a full day on the Tuesday already planned and fly home Wednesday tea time.....but would love to sample a bar with 'traditional' music, and of course Guinness! monday evening is our only option really, we are staying at the Travel lodge, Belfast Central. age range from 17 to 68. on one of the days we were hoping to do the bus tour, hop on hop off type, is it any good? and of course there's the Titanic exhibition when that opens.....

Thanks in anticipation! :)

Hi Joe

Ok, the good news is that the Travelodge is very close to Fibber Magees at Robinsons which has traditional music on - and from the link indicates that there is music on Monday and Tuesday. Not sure how busy it'll be but anyway, there's the link.


Also close to you is the famous Crown Bar which is a must visit for Belfast so you can get your Guinness in there and head to Fibber Magees (about a 1 minute walk!) for the music


The John Hewitt (the sort of pub which does specialist beers and ales etc) also often has traditional bands on Tuesdays - which may not suit it you've a full day planned. It's maybe a 15 minute walk away from the Travelodge.


I did the Belfast city sightseeing bus tour a couple of years ago and it was very good and well-balanced.

I would have said Fibber Magees too. Also Ronnie Drew's. However I really like this website for seeing what specifically will be on during your specific dates:
