Belfast & Northern Ireland

The Jailhouse

  5 Joy's Entry      (+44) (0)28 9032 6711     more than a year ago
Venture down one of Belfast's narrow entries (or lanes) and let twinkly strings of lights lead you to this history-steeped bar. Its captivating name tells the story of celebrated United Irishman founder, Henry Joy McCracken, whose political beliefs led to his incarceration at this spot and subsequent hanging in nearby Cornmarket. Look around you to find original windows and bricks, and crane your neck for glimpses of centuries-old graffitied beams. Like the adjoining Henry's bar, live music and good pub grub are the order of the day, though its earlier start means you can also drop by for breakfast. Book ahead to enjoy Afternoon Tea, the Cocktail School and Gin Club in this unique setting.
