Food and Drink

Markets

If you’re visiting on a weekend, head straight to St George’s Market for your first culinary experience in Belfast. This 19th-century market is regularly named one of the finest in the UK and is best visited on a Saturday when all the food vendors set up stall. Expect everything from oysters to a traditional Irish breakfast, with plenty of choice for both street food and ingredients to take away to cook yourself.

Pubs

Belfast is well known for its old-fashioned pubs, many of them serving lunch before concentrating on whiskey and beer (notably Guinness, of course). The Crown Liquor Saloon is the most iconic pub, with its famous intricate décor, but also make time to visit the Duke of York to sample its huge selection of whiskeys and Kelly’s Cellars for a pint of Guinness accompanied with homemade beef stew.

Restaurants

If you’re looking for an upmarket restaurant, Belfast’s fine dining scene is blossoming, headed up by two exceptional eateries, Ox and EIPIC. You’ll find an array of cuisines available in the city’s many restaurants with a strong focus on local dishes and unique recipes. During your stay, try to taste local specialities, including champ (mashed potato with butter and spring onions) and soda bread.
