Belfast Cathedral Quarter Tours

Belfast Cathedral Quarter
Known for its artistic atmosphere, the ever-expanding Belfast Cathedral Quarter is the city’s up-and-coming cultural hub. The former trading district, now home to a number of galleries, music spaces, and trendy restaurants, hosts a number of indoor and outdoor events suited to everyone, including young travelers, foodies, and families.

The Basics
St Anne’s Cathedral sits at the heart of the historic area, which is best explored by foot. City sightseeing tours usually include the area in their itinerary, or visitors can opt for a more focused political tour for insight into the city’s sectarian past. Alternatively, some round-trip tours of the Antrim coast, including Game of Thrones tours, also offer sightseeing in Belfast.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The cobbled streets are worth exploring, but remember your umbrella in rainy months—the weather can be unpredictable.
  • With trendy bars, pop-up events, and fine dining, the district offers something for everyone.
  • The Cathedral Quarter is mostly wheelchair-friendly, with paved paths, ramped access, and accessible toilets in main attractions.

How to Get There
The Quarter is a 15-minute walk from Great Victoria Street station, and nearby Ulster University Belfast Campus is served directly by the 2a, 2d, and 2e buses. The narrow streets around the quarter are best explored by foot, though there is some paid parking nearby.

When to Get There
The streets tend to be decorated with flowers in spring and summer; winter, meanwhile, brings festive lights and services at the central St Anne’s Cathedral. Aim to explore after working hours to see the neighborhood’s many bars and restaurants come to life.

Hidden murals
Get off the beaten path and discover poignant, political, and entertaining murals in the Cathedral Quarter. Find the Yellow Umbrella Passage and follow it into a colorful courtyard—it’s a picturesque setting that will provide good cultural insight.
