“get to Hyndford Street if you can”

Van Morrison's Birthplace
Reviewed 14 February 2012

If you love the music of Van Morrison and want to understand it better, visit Hyndford Street. The house he grew up in, at 125, has a plaque on the front, but isn't tourable. The street itself is atmospheric and still has the atmosphere of "the days before rock 'n roll."

This is a private, working class street, in East Belfast, but you really a get a feel for what must have inspiered Van teh Man to put lyrics to paper, simply wonder round and you will see the places that he has mentioned, Hynford Street, St Donard's Church, and Cypress Avenue.

My wife and I avid Van Morrison followers since high school, have set upon touring the world to see this iconic performer and just enjoyed our first trip to lovely and welcoming Ireland. This was made all the more special as we toured the streets and neighborhoods of Van, down in the hollow, up on Cypress Avenue and of course his birthplace on Hynford st.
