Top Ice-Cream Spots in Belfast
Did you know homemade ice-cream is one of the most popular takeout treats in Belfast?
We all love to go for an ice-cream no matter how hot or cold it is outside! Nothing beats a refreshing mint choc chip cone drizzled in chocolate sauce on a warm summers’ day! Since Belfast is packed with ice-cream and dessert parlours, we thought we would share some of our favourite ice-cream shops in Belfast with you.
Ireland’s famous and multi-award-winning Italian Ice Cream since 1911. With over 40 flavours of ice-cream, 100 years of Morelli family history and many successful awards, a visit to Morelli’s is a definite must! Their delicious ice-cream is made using fresh Double Cream and butter from the historic Ballyrashane Creamery. These rich dairy ingredients are created using milk from cows that graze in the fields of Northern Ireland’s spectacular Causeway Coast. Our favourite go-to ice-creams at Morelli’s are the Honeycomb Crunch and the Ferrero Sundae!
44 Belmont Rd
Nugelato is the ultimate destination for everyone with a sweet tooth. Over the year’s their variety of sweet treats continues to expand with new flavours and products. Nugelato is the perfect ice-cream stop off after a walk around Belfast’s Botanic Gardens, situated just a short distance away. We think that their well-known classics such as their Kinder Bueno Nuggy Pot and their Kinckerbocker Glory Sundae are simply the best in town! The shop’s wide selection of flavours, toppings and sauces including a hot chocolate sauce are way too tempting! There is something to suit everyone’s taste at Nugelato with hot stuff such as waffles, crepe’s and indulgent hot chocolates too!
135 Stranmillis Road
Maud’s is another one of Belfast’s most popular ice-cream parlours, creating award winning flavours of ice cream with supreme ingredients. As the largest producer of dairy ice-cream in Northern Ireland their products can be found at over 300 stockists across Ireland. Famous for Poor Bear’s Delight (honeycomb) ice cream, the parlour has many different flavours and toppings with recent additions including Chocolate & Sea Salted Caramel and Coffee Biscottino. Situated on the Ormeau Road, Maud’s Ice-Cream Parlour is just a 5min drive from Belfast’s city centre.

Fancy the ultimate chocolate shopping experience? Why not visit the award-winning Hotel Chocolat, situated directly opposite our Glasgow-Belfast Express Service drop off point at Belfast’s City Hall? Offering a wide range of rich, chocolate delights, their luxurious selection of chocolate treats are perfect for taking home after your city break in Belfast. Their new ‘Ice Cream of the Gods’ is no ordinary ice cream! Infused with St Lucian Theobroma cocoa nibs, which means ‘cacao, food of the gods.’ It’s no wonder it tastes so good!
