I came upon this by accident because I was walking along the streets of Belfast, and on my way to their City Hall. From afar, I could see this tall structure, sticking out in the middle of an intersection. When I was near enough to...More

This is a beautiful fountain/water feature. It is kind of hidden. Not the first thing I would recommend my friends to look at, but it is on that list.

This is a beautiful fountain/water feature but unfortunately has been neglected. Come on city council and bring it back to its former glory!!

It's easy to miss this 'attraction' on the way to the big movie theater around the corner or to one of the many restaurants located in the area. The Victorian fountain has a symbolic message that you can drink here and keep both healthy and...More

The inscription on the fountain reads, "Whosoever drinketh the water that I shall give him...shall never thirst again". Sadly there is no water to drink. I am the person who made a mistake and said that this fountain was only about thirty years old. As...More

Often in town and see this monument. Never really paid it attention til today. It's a well sculpted statue and acts as a great landmark.

When I saw this fountain, I thought it was very old, but then I found that he has only about 30 years. An special arhitecture, sorrounded by modern buildings.

Such a thing, a monument to an amazing hero in a time from hell (see review below). Once it was another Victorian monument in a city filled with fancy facades. Now it is alone, out-of-place among the boring glass and brick towers of the 20th...More

It seems like a bad joke. An inscription reads “Whosoever drinketh the water that I shall give him…shall never thirst again”. Well, those waters are turned off, so tough luck. The font is full of trash dropped by passers-by who didn't give a fig. This...More

This little memorial fountain is very unassuming & seems to blend into its surroundings rather than standing out. It has a “blink & you'll miss it” feeling about it. It stands on a pedestrian island across from BBC Buildings & Nandos & serves as a...More
