AboutNestled along a narrow cobbled alleyway in the historic Half Bap area, the Duke offers a traditional Belfast welcome of craic, music and humour.
Hosting regular traditional sessions there is no better place to sample the real taste of our city – simply step in and drink an Irish whiskey washed down with a pint of creamy stout. Imagine Belfast with only five streets. Protected by earth ramparts and the city walls, the area where the Dark Horse now stands was convenient to the old iron foundry, the pottery, the whiskey merchants and the brown linen hall. Appreciate the superb décor and special atmosphere with beautiful antique mirrors, Belfast furniture and artefacts from some of the city’s most famous hotels and buildings from bygone times – providing a rather rare and unique glimpse of Belfast’s historical past.
Just call in and you will enjoy a huge warm welcome from a truly Belfast institution with a huge heart.
