Mollys Yard is good for food and is just up the street. Botanic Ave has the most restaurants and cafes of and street in Belfast so you will have plenty of choice.

As the 8th of March is a Saturday the student bars wont be the same as a weeknight but hear goes,

The Union, The Botanic, The Egg, Laverys, The Hatfield, The Globe,Filthy Mc Nasties.Limelight/ Spring and Airbrake, For clubs Thompsons, The Box, Mono,Beach and Eivissa all have student nights.

Things to see and do, The Ulster Museum, The Titanic Belfast,The City Hall Tour,The Crumlin Rd Jail Tour,HoHo Bus Tour or Black Taxi Tour and of course visit the Crown Bar.

Great suggestions there from Bobby, although note that The Globe is now The Elms instead (but still equally as popular with students). The Parlour is also a great student bar, and then there is always the students union itself. The Empire is worth a look.

Restaurants-wise, I'll also add Café Renoir, the Barking Dog and (more informal but a rite of passage for students and foodies alike) Boojum. Also have a look at Maggie Mays and the Black Bear Café. You really will be spoilt for choice though - we're coming down with eateries and bars!

Definitely check out the botanic inn, parlour and the eglantine inn which are all longtime student favourites! Filthy mcnastys is one of the newer, popular places to go these days on Dublin road. I'm not so sure if the elms is still open as I heard it had been sold to become a tesco store!
