 Donegall Square

Let’s start our journey through Belfast at
its very heart - Donegall Square and its
crowning glory the magnificent and very
beautiful City Hall. The City Hall area is a
hive of activity day and night, from the bustle
of early morning office workers hurrying to
work. The Square is a major stop off point for
the city’s Metro buses and taxis. Around the
square you will be amazed by the magnificent
architecture highlighting Belfast’s past
and the unique stores selling the latest
collections. You could almost spend a day
relaxing around the Square, checking out
the happening fashion brands in Jaeger &
Jaeger Man or Karen Millen. Interested in
Art? Check out Sheldon Art Gallery or if you
are searching for dress fabric or home ware
The Spinning Wheel has been a well known
Belfast business for many years. Around
the square in the evening things become
livelier with a range of places to go for
something to eat or drink including the avant
garde Basement Bar, The Grill Room, or the
Apartment with its wonderful views.
