While a tour of a graveyard may not be up everyone’s street, if you join an organised tour of The Clifton Street Cemetery you are party and privileged to the poignant history of this wonderful city and the people who made it what it is. Tours are organised through the Glenravel Local History Project who can be contacted online or through the tourist information. Be aware the graveyard is not normally open to the general public so bookings must be made.

For eating out
CoCo has been on the Belfast dining scene for years and while the decor may feel a little dated, the food remains steadfastly good. The food on the menu is varied but always tasty and all delivered to you at a great, affordable price.
Cafe Vauderville is always a hot ticket in town and if you want a seat at this evening venue you must book ahead. Drinks are pricey but the jolly atmosphere onside makes up for that.
