Lovely venue, bit out of the way if you're not about the Falls Road, but I would recommend a walk up here if you are in town. The coffee is really good, and you will get a good feed. I definitely intend to get back up there at some stage and have another lunch.

So nice to see Gaeltacht quarter thriving here. There is a great shop with books and CDs 'as Gaeilge' ( in Irish language), and a very pleasant restaurant. Lovely to hear staff and customers speaking 'as Gaeilge'

Went today for breakfast, they had a couple of large groups in, which left staff overstretched and not able to cope with the other tables. We were served after other small groups who came in later than us, and although staff apologised for the wait, the food was ok (bread items were lovely, black pudding very dry but rest ok)... More

A very interesting place to visit. Beautiful old converted church, it houses tourist information, bookshop, café, meeting rooms, art exhibition spaces and a wonderful roof garden. Staff are all very pleasant and helpful. The café serves a range of traditional home-cooked food. The best vegetarian fry I've ever had! Very family friendly. Great for late breakfasts and Sunday lunches and... More

The Culturlann is at the heart of what is fast becoming Belfast Irish language centre or Gaeltacht on the West Belfast Falls Road. The bookshop is extensive and restaurant has a very laid back atmosphere with excellent very resonable food.

Had a tour of the museum part of this, which is interesting, but could do with more exhibits. The cafe and shop are well worth a visit, and the staff are very friendly.
