Fun art installation, can't miss it but you can miss the story in the tiles if you don't look. Very popular with the photo takers.

Fun to see the Big Fish while you're out walking Belfast. There are three seal statues nearby that are fun too! There's construction nearby the seals right now, so a gate between you and the water views.

Wouldn’t make a special journey down to the fish which is located near to the river Lagan foot bridge, but as we were visiting the Titanic and the various attractions along the riverside, it was worth a photo shoot, you can’t miss it as you approach the bridge!

It’s a short walk from downtown, but wasn’t as interesting as I was hoping. It felt like the city stuck this art project as far away as they could.

We actually used this sculpture as main reference point during our walks around downtown Belfast. Quick photo and off you go!

We were exploring downtown Belfast and had read about the "big fish," so we decided to walk over and check it out. It was a short walk from the downtown core.

Fun art! It's fun to evaluate how it changes as you go from seeing it at a distance to noticing it up-close. The tile work (patterns and messages on individual tiles) was pretty neat.

Free and worth the walk. Here's to cool public art.

This is a huge statue on the waterfront, a close walk from the city centre. We drove past on the Hop-On Hop-Off Red Bus Tour on the way to Titanic Belfast, but it is worth a closer look at the fish to see the intricate tiles and the stories they tell of Belfast.

There are also a couple of colourful Game Of Thrones artworks nearby, which are definitely worth a look and few photos too.

It’s a big fish statue. Story behind it is pretty cool. Check it out. Not much else to be said about it. Take some photos I guess.

It's a nice clean safe area of Belfast, The views of the river are good. The Big Fish is a good photo opportunity. Very close to the Hilton Hotel and some very good restaurants, and the Market. Recommended .

This was one of the first points of interest I saw after arriving in Belfast, so I was likely to be more excited over it than I should have been.
Look closely at the “scales” of the fish and see all the prints & photos. It’s an interesting piece
