In the night
Belfast is famous for its friendly locals, accommodating land lords and fantastic night life, so enjoying yourself in the evenings is no problem at all. In the summertime the night life starts a little earlier, with many popular beer gardens playing host to hordes of tourists and residents alike. In the winter you will find traditional Irish pubs in abundance, often with working indoor fires and crowded bars.
The Crown Liqueur Saloon is a popular throw back to Victorian times and a great example of the kind of location most tourists expect. For something a little different Bittle’s Bar is a nearby free house within what looks like a giant chimney. The quirky look to this cylindrical pub makes it a big hit with tourists.
The Garrick is a well-known bar with traditional Irish stringed instruments and regular music. The pub has made a name for itself through its appeal to tourists and doesn’t struggle to fill its rooms quickly, so be sure to get there early if you want a seat.
