Yes there are lots of tabacs here and you can also buyfrom supermarkets. or even at Schiphol on the way home. It will be a lot cheaper here than in Belfast.

My dad is also a roll-up smoker, although Golden Virginia rather than Old Holborn. I buy him a 10x50g pack on my twice yearly Amsterdam trips from John N Andringa Tobacconist at Reguliersbreestraat 2. It's directly opposite the Munt Tower end of Singel flower market. I buy at this shop more out of habit than anything else as there are tobacconists al over Amsterdam. I do like the old school vibe of this shop though.

If at all helpful, my husband always buys Javaanse Jongens rolling tobacco when we visit Rotterdam, and paid 5.90 Euro each for 40 gram packs in April 2012. (I discovered that I could only buy UK Superkings in the Brussels Midi/Zuid station en route, but at 48 Euro per carton of 200, yippee!!)
