Description

Yummy food, great drinks, friendly staff and fun times in south Belfast.

Ryan’s is an independent bar and restaurant in South Belfast. Originally a staging post for horses bound for Dublin, there has been a bar on this site for well over a century, still much loved by the local community and steeped in folklore. Indeed, it was a haunt of Seamus Heaney and ‘The Group’ in the 60s.

Downstairs is a cosy bar with an excellent selection of local and world craft beers, a roaring fire and a warm welcome so that you can while away the hours with great craic and conversation.

Upstairs is 70-seat restaurant, showcasing the best of NI produce at great prices. Known for the NI farm quality assured steaks, traditional Irish Boxtys and of course their famous chicken wings, it is family friendly and excellent value for money.
