Belfast Christmas Market aka The Continental Market 2014

So, we went back again to Belfast’s Christmas Market for 2014, after the failed attempt at a visit on a Sunday afternoon (just don’t try it) and this time (a Wednesday evening) things were much better. It was cold, but not unbearably so, and while the two main bars were full, the market itself was relatively quiet. Great stuff.

Rice, but no December ice (yet).

Here you can get kangaroo, venison, or wild boar burgers however.

One of the two main bars, most seem to flock to this one as it has the best selection of European beers including strawberry beer, tequila flavoured beer, and huge steins to drink from.

A little merry-go-round for the kids.

The hog roast baguettes (with bbq sauce) from here were delicious.

Plenty of teeth rotting fun too.
