Belfast’s winding streets, historic sites and trendy quarters means there’s something for every kind of date. Whether it’s romantic, wild, relaxed or funny – the Northern Ireland capital is the place to go.
A stroll around the city with its grand buildings and twinkling lights is nice in itself. But if you’re looking for something more unique to do with your other half or for a first date, this city of culture is awash with opportunities for romance. Whether you’re a foodie, a party animal or prefer something a little more chilled out, you’ll love our list of six brilliant date ideas in Northern Ireland’s capital city.
The waterfront of the River Lagan is the ideal place for a romantic evening stroll. Many of Belfast’s landmarks can be seen from here. When they’re lit up at night, the river reflects their twinkling lights, as well as those of the waterfront restaurants and the boats bobbing on the river. Be sure to head to the Lagan lookout point for the best night time view of Belfast. We recommend meeting your date at the Titanic Quarter then working your way down the river to grand Waterfront Hall.
Queen’s Film Theatre or QFT is Northern Ireland’s leading independent cinema and a great spot for a night at the movies – with a twist. Alongside the big releases, QFT regularly shows classics, world favourites and artsy independents, so you can pick the right vibe for your date. There’s an onsite bar to sip while you watch and on Mondays, films are just £4. Snuggle up and enjoy cinema at its best.
Activity dates mean less pressure to create fun as it’s already done for you. Citigolf on Cromac Street has everything you need under one roof and dubs itself the Ultimate Party Venue. There’s karaoke, big-screen Wii and Xbox and adventure golf. With plenty of food and drink options, you can make a night of it.
