As it’s the capital of Northern Ireland, there are all sorts of wonderfully diverse things to do in Belfast. The sights, culture and entertainment are all top notch and the Belfast folks are a genuinely warm, welcoming bunch. And thanks to a prolonged period of peace, there’s no need to worry about “The Troubles,” as they no longer prevent you enjoying all the great things to do in Belfast. The city is coming into its own as an excellent tourist destination, as it rightly should.

Located on Botanic Avenue, the club has hosted performances by some of the most famous comedians the British Isles have produced, including Lee Evans, Michael McIntyre and Dara O'Briain.
