Club information

An introduction to the club including how to get there and details of when the club is open.

MuldoonsClub captain Peter Wilson has found the team a comfortable and convenient base in the heart of Belfast: upstairs in Muldoons Bar. This will be the teams home venue in the Belfast & District League. The bar can be awkward to get to if you accidentally get trapped in the one-way system that is Corporation Street so check your directions beforehand.

Muldoons is situated on the corner of what was Tomb Street and Corporation Square across the road from Sinclair Seamen's Church and the Harbour Commissioners. There is plenty of street parking in the evenings. Coming from the city centre along Victoria Street, veer right towards the river after the Albert Clock and then veer left along Donegal Quay toward the ferry terminal (Tomb Street does not reach Corporation Square any more). Alternatively, approaching from the north, the westlink or the M2, head for the docks and along Corporation Street turning left at Direct Wine Shipments into Corporation Square. If you overshoot - missing the turn - carry on round left after the lights onto Donegal Quay.

Home match nights are on Monday's 7:30pm during the League Season. Matches will be played upstairs from the bar; access is from either the side entrance or from the bar itself.

Sorry, the bar does not serve food in the evening; plenty of refreshments though.
