The staff’s natural approach to entertaining translates wonderfully to their help in planning exceptional occasions and memorable corporate events.
The Restaurant offers an eye-catching setting for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, while The Bar is a local favorite for afternoon tea and evening drinks. You can always schedule a private dining event as well.
The Restaurant – With bright colors, red high-backed chairs, and intimate booths, The Restaurant cares about stellar looks as much as it does great food. Dean Butler is the new Executive Head Chef at The Fitzwilliam Belfast. He describes his style as classical but modern, a combination he developed while studying at Portrush Catering College and in a renowned five-star Hotel in London. An advocate for sourcing quality produce from the top suppliers in Northern Ireland, the season's best is reflected in his innovative dishes. Throughout his career, Butler has earned the coveted title of the Institute of Hospitality’s "Chef of the Year" not once, but twice. Enjoy pan-seared sea trout with beetroot or a rump of Irish lamb with smoked yogurt and spiced couscous, all paired exquisitely with a carefully selected wine.
If you want a lighter meal before heading out, The Restaurant also offers an early evening menu. The grandest meal of the day is breakfast, with a huge selection that delights any palate.
The Bar – Combining hushed Manhattan chic with vibrant oranges and a friendly smile from the staff, The Bar welcomes you and a cheerful crowd of locals to while away the evening over cocktails at the bar or a bottle of wine in a booth. As the lively heart of the hotel, The Bar is the ideal spot for an impressive lunch or dinner of burgers, steaks, risottos, and curries. If you want to indulge in afternoon tea, consider accompanying it with a glass of prosecco or a flamboyant French Martini.
The Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast offers a 24-hour gym, well-equipped with rowing machines, exercise bikes, and free weights. For an evening of on-site fun, join one of the hotel’s expertly organized theme nights — the murder mysteries aboard the Titanic and in 1920s Charleston are particular favorites.
The Grand Opera House next door shows a grand range of musicals, comedies, and concerts throughout the year. Nearby, as well, are the Botanic Gardens, with their stunning Palm House, dating back to 1840. Before you venture fully into the gardens, be sure to stop by Ulster Museum at the entrance, which takes you on a journey through the region’s comprehensive history. Meanwhile, as you are in the city that built the Titanic, spend a few hours exploring the impressively regenerated Titanic Quarter, featuring Titanic Belfast’s museum exhibition as its centerpiece.
