Each year, thousands of visitors enjoy the Cathedral Quarter’s festivals and events in beautiful venues and outdoor performance spaces, as well as its fantastic pubs, restaurants and hotels. Entertainment, creative learning and cultural opportunities abound in the Cathedral Quarter thanks to the many arts and cultural organisations and creative businesses in the area and the University of Ulster Belfast Campus.
Beautiful public spaces, including Custom House Square (Belfast’s largest outdoor venue) Cotton Court, Writer’s Square, Cathedral Gardens and the recently launched Saint Anne’s Square are ideal for outdoor events. The MAC (Metropolitan Arts Centre) will open its doors in the Cathedral Quarter in 2012.
The Cathedral Quarter's dynamic mix of activities - against the backdrop of some of the city's oldest and most beautiful streets and buildings - sets it apart as one of Belfast’s most exciting places to work, visit and live.
