The Dirty Onion, with its ideal location in the heart of Cathedral Quarter, offering a huge beer garden and cosy interior, is so inviting you can’t help but sit down by the fire and enjoy a pint (or indeed, a whiskey on a cold winters night).
The bar is housed in one of Belfast’s oldest buildings, and places an emphasis on craft beers and whiskeys, and has an incredible musical offering throughout the week.
The Dirty Onion is hosting its highly popular mini festival this weekend ‘Live at Onion’ sponsored by Clonmel.
