Boozing in rich Irish History

Commercial Court Street Belfast BT1 2NB
Must visit at night and highly recommend to savour some fresh Irish brews in one of its traditional pub

While Belfast is replete with traditional Irish pubs scattered across the city, this cobbled tiny alley is so enigmatic, that you will fall in love with it.


This quaint street is huddled up near the Belfast Cathedral, not many travel sites write about it, hence it is some kind of serendipity. As the name suggests, it was once believed to be the commercial heart of the city. Believed to have been a regular jaunt for potters, judges, politicians, whiskey merchants and traders, several bronze panels on this street are a testimony for the same.


At nightfall, this street comes alive, glittering with soft lights and buzzing with people who come to one of the traditional pubs in this street. Most notable among them is ‘The Duke of York’ which is believed to house more than 150 different tipples for you to experiment. Try other places around like The Bushmills , The Hadskis known for its European Wine and pots and pans, Le Coup serving some of the best grilled chicken, The Dirty Onion Yardbird again known for its superbly marinated chicken grills.

Opening hours


How to get there

Walk around the Cathedral Quarter. This is a very narrow street and can look quite unassuming during the day and you are likely to miss it. However with the buzz around it at night, you cannot miss it at all.
