Belfast Christmas Markets
Everyone looks forward to the Belfast Christmas Markets returning each year. At this time of year Belfast City Hall is lit up to the nines, the beer tent is hiving and the cabins are offering up tasty treats for all. The following details my highlights at the markets this year, after visiting last weekend ??
Baileys Hot Chocolate
Grab a boozy hot chocolate just to the right on your way in to the markets from the front entrance – you can’t miss it they have a lot of bottles of Baileys on hand ?
Mourne Seafood Shack
Mourne Seafood have a setup at the Christmas markets this year, offering up something different from the burgers and sausages. I could’ve ordered everything on the menu! But with only having two hands this wasn’t quite achievable. We had Salt and Chilli Prawns, Salt and Chilli Squid, Piri Piri Fries and Truffle and Parmesan fries – SO GOOD, definitely worth a try!
An open pit fire for toasting mallows close to Santa’s grotto and the giant snow globe ??
The German Beer Tent
If you are visiting the markets in the evening, prepare yourself for a busy tent. But don’t let it put you off. Grab a stein…or a pint and if you can, a seat at the long tables. The atmosphere is great!
I’m not sure if they have it on tap this year, but if it is be sure to try a passionfruit or cactus beer ?
You must join the queue for dutch pancakes! You will not regret it! These babies are devine, especially when there is Nutella involved ?
Melting Pot Fudge
Stop by the stall for some award winning Melting Pot Fudge, handcrafted by a Belfast family business called Blackthorn Foods. They have a fab range of flavours and you can pick up 3 bars of fudge for £5 ?
If you’re visiting Belfast for a festive weekend, doing your Christmas shopping or on a night out, Belfast Christmas Markets is well worth visiting!
