Welcome to Time Out
The best of Belfast
Take a wander around Belfast, Northern Ireland’s capital city, and you’ll find yourself in a hub of first-class food. The bustling port is famous for its seafood, so you can expect to find plenty of fresh fish, but the daily catch isn’t all that’s on the menu. Belfast has enjoyed a cultural and culinary renaissance in recent years and now you can find affordable meals, chilled-out dining spots and world cuisine in the centre. Whether you love meat, fancy dining, local ingredients, vegetarian food or trendy hangouts, you’ll be well catered for here. Eaten somewhere on this list and loved it?

As the largest city in Northern Ireland, the most awesome things to do do in Belfast involve the town's famous industrial heritage and major port. Possibly the most famous ship ever built—the Titanic—hailed from a Belfast shipyard and is remembered in the city's Titanic Experience, a hugely popular stop for tourists. The best part of visiting (in addition to the top restaurants in town, of course) is the proximity to other cities, ideal day-trip destinations in stunning rural areas and on the coastline. But, if you are confining yourself to city limits, make sure to stop by the brilliant Belfast pubs while ticking off other items on this awesome guide to the town.
