Description

The Cloth Ear provides patrons with a pleasing twist on the quintessential Irish pub.

Nestled in the oldest quarter of Belfast, the bar has woven a rich seam of our wonderful Victorian heritage into what is ultimately a thoroughly modern experience. At The Cloth Ear the welcome is warm and the atmosphere convivial. Join and celebrate the gentle art of conversation.


The drinks list combines classic creations and innovative ideas. From punch bowls to hoptails and wine by the keg, The Cloth Ear carefully crafted an eclectic array of drinks to quench your thirst, tickle your tastebuds and get the conversation flowing.


‘Phone gaols’ and pared-back entertainment programme of trad and acoustic music reflect The Cloth Ear’s desire to encourage people to talk to one another uninterrupted by modern gadgetry.


No shaggy dogs, no braggarts, no windbags. Just tall tales, short stories and open minds.
