Belfast Quarters


Belfast Quarters

The central area of Belfast has been roughly divided into four Quarters:

*The Titanic Quarter
*The Cathedral Quarter
*Queen's Quarter
*The Gaeltacht Quarter

The Quarters do not evenly divide the city into four, nor is every area in the centre of Belfast part of a Quarter. Instead, each Quarter reflects something about its history and locale, with the "Quarter" label being something that has come about since 2001.
