Queen's Quarter

Staying at the Chambers of Distinction is staying in the heart of culture-jammed south Belfast.  Melanie is always keen to share the inside track on what  is happening in the thriving cultural heartbeat of the city on any given week.


These are the streets walked by Nobel Literature Laureate Seamus Heaney when the poet attended and taught at nearby Queen’s University. In neighbouring Stranmillis watch a play at the Lyric Theatre where a young Liam Neeson first tread the boards.


Buy a book or catch a reading at the No Alibis bookshop, or saunter through the stunning Botanic Gardens before enjoying the priceless collection of important work by Belfast artist Sir John Lavery in the Ulster Museum.


Walk or take the 8B bus from just outside the doors into town for the Grand Opera House, or catch a gig by an up-and-coming band  in the beautiful Ulster Hall, high culture at the Waterfront, or a legendary act at the SSE Arena. High-quality restaurants and very popular bars adorn the area guaranteeing an unforgettable night.
