The Duke of York: "A hidden gem" Top 5 Page for this destination Belfast Nightlife Tip by St_Vincent

Belfast Nightlife: 56 reviews and 54 photos


The Duke of York wins hands down in the “how much brewing memorabilia you can display in a pub” competition. There are old photos, beer trays, mirrors, adverts and a plethora of old Guinness and Watney Red Barrel promotional material. There is so much that items are even fixed flat to the ceiling to make more room. It looks like the interior has had some recent work done although it still has an aged look with lots of wooden fixtures, exposed brickwork and flagstone floors. There’s a nice four person snug with closable doors at the back and they have a side room that is open at busy times plus an upstairs function room. The pub has a very attractive old looking exterior and is tucked away down one of Belfast’s oldest streets in the heart of what was once the newspaper district - now the Cathedral Quarter.

Address: Commercial Court, Belfast, BT1 2NB
Directions: A little difficult to find, Commercial Court runs between Donegall St and Henry St in the Cathedral Quarter. Very close to the John Hewitt (q.v.).
