    Spent a couple of hours meandering round this lovely artisan market. Plenty of stalls for food, great live music being played, lots of craft stalls offering a variety of either antique or brand new art works. Great place to spend a couple of hours.

    This is the place to head for culture, art, music, drinks and food. Not really a shopping area as such but the party centre of Belfast City.

    We happened to walk by and visited unexpectedly. It was a wonderful surprise. The history of Troubles and particularly the role of women was enlightening and sobering. The poster exhibit on 4 levels of stairs was amazing
    Upstairs there is a coffee bar in old world antiques and furnishings.
    In the library we found some details of family history in the note cards going back decades.
    So happy we found this exceptional museum.

    Cathedrals aren't for everyone but this relatively modern church is well worth a detour to visit. The unusual spike like spire built of steel was incorporated so as not to weigh the building down, putting pressure on its less than firm foundations! It rather resembles a dagger being suspended over the pulpit & congregation! An accident of design or subliminal religious symbolism?!

    Flew over to Belfast specially to visit this museum. So full of information and the staff are lovely and really helpful. Shop was full of things to buy and great militaria at a budget friendly price. Work was being done when we went with scaffolding but it was just as good as I think it would have been normally! They helped traced records of my relatives in the regiment and the information and artefacts themselves were really informative. The staff had 1-1 conversations and expanded on the information around. A small but brilliant place.

    Named in honour of Albert (Victoria’s Husband) this Memorial Clock is a monster in construction! Great landmark in knowing were your heading to in the city! Worth a look! Useful note, the 96 bus to the ferry terminal leaves from across the road from the clock…

    a really enjoyable hour of wandering through a really interesting old graveyard while our guide "brought to life" excuse the pun - the lives of so many interesting people who are buried here. The guide had such a depth of knowledge of dates - events and put these into context as he moved between the various graves - his stories were so interesting, without being in any way disrepectful of the surroundings. He was able to touch on so many important parts of the history of Belfast and Ireland in such a way as to want you to find out more - a very skilled guide.

    First class reference library with the most helpful staff I’ve ever met. They couldn’t do enough for us, helping with research queries and finding information. Wonderful.

    Stopped in to kill some free time. Not sure I’m an artist or an art critic but found some of the works very interesting and thought provoking.
    Gallery seemed very welcoming and front of house staff was very friendly, informative and helpful. Would feel encouraged to visit more galleries and come back in the future.

    We stumbled across this little gem on our first day in Belfast. Firstly, the member of staff in the cafe was so helpful...giving us tips about where to visit while we were in town. The food and cuppa were lovely. The museum was interesting but sadly some of the interactive equipment needed updating/repairing

    The Cornmarket area has a good selection of shops in Belfast offering a wide variety of shops - some brands and some independent.

    Very nice experience having Irish Guinness beer with traditional bar at night in the middle of Irish people the weekend is full of people dining in and out it was a good vibe. You have to be careful with drunk people anyway.

    A feast for the eyes as this must be one of the most beautiful buildings in Belfast. Sadly there are no shops inside or even a cafe nowadays. Princess and I visited a few weeks ago. The building does have a wee museum as you go in from the Great Victoria St entrance. It's run by the Presbyterian church who also have their historical society office there.The museum has some very interesting exhibits including old bibles and church artifacts. Worth a visit. The clock tower bells ring out on the the hours.
