Cobblestone streets, murals, restaurants and pubs are pleasant by day and by night. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the quarter. By nightfall the little lightbulbs add flavor. We liked it.

The area is now the hub of Belfast's night time economy with an absolute plethora of pubs, restaurants and music venues. St Anne's Cathedral is a must see attraction for locals and visitors alike.

Love this area as it has so much going in, the Cathedral is wonderful to visit and it stands so proud at night time.

So many bars and attractions, so many alleys to explore. This Quarter has something for everyone and don't stand still because you will get a history lesson on where you stand wether you have asked for one or not! Full of proud welcoming locals that want to share.

Went to the John Hewitt bar in cathedral quarter to listen to traditional music. Great atmosphere but as very full struggled to hear the music. Still a great night though!

I stayed here for a few days in January and overall the area is nice and has lots of trendy bars and restaurants. It's definitely more new Belfast then old Belfast but that comes with more expensive pricing with a price of a pint over £4.

We walked around the 'so called' Cathedral Quarter- and were most disappointed with the number of abandoned buildings, graffitti, and general impression of deriliction. perhaps our mistake was to go there during the day. parhaps at night the place transforms itself!

There are many restaurants and bars so you'll never find a place overcrowded. It's near to the Centre so is easy to go and visit. Just didn't go to see the Cathedral inside, needed to pay to see it :/
