  1. Holohans At the Barge, Belfast.
    1 Lanyon Quay, Belfast BT1 3LG

Starting off with some traditional Irish food, this quaint little restaurant located in Belfast is well-known for its great atmosphere and relatively extensive wine list. If you want to try some real Irish food, you can eat the classic fish boxtys which are potato pancakes with salmon or fish, and then finish it off with a large sundae to complete your meal. While you eat, you have a view of the beautiful River Lagan, and you can just sit and relax.
