The Fitzwilliam Restaurant:
What an unusual room… As you weave through the wood and pink, the subdued, intimate lighting, the communal tables and the stunning high-backed chairs you know this is going to be good – No, very good.
All-day menus have been created which are sumptuous, of course, but also wholesome, elegantly simple and uncomplicated. Naturally, we use the finest fresh local produce carefully prepared by expert chefs. This is all about flavour and redefines casual dining. The result is, well, astonishing. It’s also refreshingly affordable.
The Fitzwilliam Bar:
If, somehow, amazingly, you’ve managed not to hear about the bar at the Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast yet, are you in for a pleasant surprise!
We’ve put a lot of thought into the design and layout of this incredible bar and we think you’ll love it. Copper-clad lighting, glimpse windows, real crystal glasses and a drinks bible with over 700 spirits and liquors. As you’d expect at the Fitzwilliam, our wine list has a twist: Almost every wine and champagne is available by the glass. An ultra-chic home to the city’s great and good the atmosphere is lively and warm: Come in and sit down. Join us for a cocktail made by that magician behind the bar. Hungry? Tuck in.
This could be Manhattan. But it’s not. It’s the heart of Belfast.
On the Map: Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland, is located in the northeastern corner of the country in County Antrim. Belfast is well served by a network of good roads, including the M1 motorway from Dublin City.
Approximately one third of the population of Northern Ireland – about half a million people – live in Belfast. It’s setting is very attractive, nestling in a semicircle of hills, where the River Langan enters Belfast Lough. The city got it’s name from Beile Feirst “the mouth of the sandy ford” – and was founded in 1177 when the Anglo-Normans built a castle here. It began to really expand in the 17th century with the development of the local linen and shipbuilding industries (the Titanic was built here). Sights to see in Belfast City, the Belfast City Hall, built of Portland stone in Classical Renaissance style, dominates the city center. The Linen Hall Library, founded in 1788 is an absolute delight, a cultural centre with exhibitions, a Theater & Performing Arts Archive and a Genealogy and Heraldry collection. Away from the city center you have the Ulster Museum in the Botanic Gardens, near Queens University which has miles of galleries and exhibitions. This lively and friendly city, with historic buildings standing side-by-side with modern creations is a delight not to be missed.
