really worth going here at night, be prepared gets very busy and most places have standing room (just) by a certain time, however lots of great and interesting bars, but not for those who don't like lots of noise and big crowds

Cobble stone streets. Beautiful Murials. Lovely picturesque place. One of the most photographed streets in Belfast.

Cathedral Quarter is a mix of new meets old. Duke of York is a must see bar for any tourist. There are numerous, modernised coffee shops and old book stores. The John serves a good pub lunch, the Duke of York has a lovely outdoor seating area and The Dark Horse houses one of the Doors Of Thrones.

My uber driver told me to check this area out and it was so cool! I started at the Harp for a fun night with live music and then walked around and stopped in to some other venues. Definitely worth walking through.

Ok, there are actually cathedral and churches there, but the main attraction for visitors are narrow cobblestone streets, full of bars, lounges, and clubs, live music, fun crowd, interesting graffiti, and mosaics, Lots of fun, if you are into that. Mostly authentic, not too touristy.

Quirky, lively with some great pubs, delightful cobbled backstreets; very pretty surprising courtyards full of murals. Well worth a visit.
