Gabe has been with us ever since retiring from the Civil Service a few years back and describes himself as the ‘oldest and wisest of the guides’ (and we’re not arguing).  Here’s a few of his favourite things to do and places to visit around Belfast:

My favourite restaurant:

The Muddlers Club

My favourite café:

The Belmont Bistro, Belmont Road

My favourite bar:

The Garrick

My favourite building:

St Malachy’s Church

My Favourite museum:

Ulster Museum

My favourite escape from the city:

Either a day trip to Bangor or a walk up Cavehill for the amazing view over Belfast.  But if time is short, Redburn Country Park is a lovely hidden gem just outside the eastern edge of town.
