Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Belfast, Northern Ireland area.
Following decades of Catholic versus Protestant unrest, Belfast has seen the light to undergo a tourism resurgence, with Victorian buildings in city center now hosting chic lodging, eateries, and pubs. Great Victoria Street’s Crown Liquor Saloon is among the city’s best known gin palaces, along with Kelly’s Cellars on Banks Street, Bittles Bar on Victoria Square, Hatfield House on Ormeau Road, and The Deer’s Head at North and Garfield streets. Bailey’s Historical Pub walking tours are as in demand as the liqueur not invented until 1974. Belfast churches are seemingly even more plentiful than bars. Oldest is the the circa 1737 Church of Ireland Knockbreda Parish Church on Church Road. The 1783 First Presbyterian Church on Rosemary Street hosts lunch concerts. Others are the 1816 Church of Ireland’s St. George’s with its Georgian portico, and the 1857 Presbyterian Sinclair Seamen’s Church with a pulpit shaped like a ship’s prow. Steam Trains Ireland operate rail tour adventures from Belfast throughout Ireland.

Dining options range from Irish pub grub to Asian fare. Touring by boat, open-top bus or by bicycle showcases the city’s best.
