Our hotel was in the Cathedral Quarter & we found it a great location being close to shops, restaurants, the Albert clock tower, the River Lagan/Titanic Quarter &, of course, St. Anne's Cathedral. Although it is a busy area we found it quiet at night.

This area is packed with history, tourist stops, great food, shopping and great pubs. We stayed in a hotel in the area and never bothered getting a taxi or bus anywhere else.

Yep bars are busy enough. Some live music around. Probably best to try the thirsty goat or dirty onion. Also the Spaniard but it can get very crowded.
