We stumbled upon this wonderful fountain while taking a stroll through downtown, The detail and craftsmanship were incredible. It was lovely to see everything on the fountain and made me do wee bit of research. I think the bus tours should put this on the route just a drive by point of interest.

I came upon this by accident because I was walking along the streets of Belfast, and on my way to their City Hall. From afar, I could see this tall structure, sticking out in the middle of an intersection. When I was near enough to read the inscription, I found out that it was a memorial fountain, but so far, all the fountains I have came across in my desultory walks in the city, did not really have any water running out of it into any basin. However, this did not really seem to be well taken care of, or considered as a tourist attraction, enough for its upkeep/maintenance and enough so that people give it more attention as they pass by. It looked somewhat forlorn, but that was probably because it was a cold, dreary day with nobody else around as I passed by.

This is a beautiful fountain/water feature. It is kind of hidden. Not the first thing I would recommend my friends to look at, but it is on that list.

This is a beautiful fountain/water feature but unfortunately has been neglected. Come on city council and bring it back to its former glory!!

It's easy to miss this 'attraction' on the way to the big movie theater around the corner or to one of the many restaurants located in the area. The Victorian fountain has a symbolic message that you can drink here and keep both healthy and clean - something which unfortunately is difficult today because it does not seem to work (temporarily?) ... It reminds me of a sawed-off church steeples and feels like a odd bird among the surrounding houses, not least the BBC's local headquarters.
