Outside Sauna

Outside Sauna

Northern Ireland’s only Gay Sauna

Average Reviews


Outside Sauna in Belfast is a cool spot for gay and bisexual guys to hang out, right in the middle of the city's LGBT area. It's the only gay sauna in Northern Ireland and it's got a really laid-back vibe. The place is open all day and night on weekends, and stays open late on Thursdays too, so it's easy to fit into any schedule.

When you go there, you'll find a chill lounge area where you can just relax and meet people. They've got private cabins too, if you're looking for some quiet time. Plus, they take care of your stuff with secure lockers. They also throw some fun themed events every now and then, which shakes things up a bit.

Basically, it's a great place to just be yourself, unwind, and maybe make some new friends. It's right in the heart of Belfast's gay scene, so it's super easy to get to and a popular spot for both locals and visitors.

Do not go here if you expect a modern sauna. The wet room stinks. However, the beds are kept clean. The service is somewhat good.

This place really needs a good deep clean. Showers were filthy. I saw dead flys and mould on the windowsill, and a used condom in the shower, and the shower heads were caked in limescale and mould. Also no soap in the two dispensers and the radiator wasn’t working (or the heating wasn’t on)The toilets also need a good scrubbing and some bleach, particularly the urinal downstairs - absolutely filthy.Upstairs, some of the cubicles had used tissues/condoms scattered over the floors and beds, and I didn’t see anyone clean them for the entirety of the time that I was there, which was a good 4/5 hours.The owner needs to visit some Saunas in England to see how it should be done.

Guy that works here accused me of taking photos with my phone and want to check when it was in my locker. Then he flips his lid every time I say something he's a complete nut job then he threw my bag down the stairs I wanted to throw him down because he wanted to throw me down too.freaky.

To be honest, I like this place very much. There are many handsome men in it. However, I have to say that the hygiene here really needs a lot of improvement. I used to go here often, but in September I contracted scabies here. This skin disease is very difficult to cure. I hope to improve the hygiene environment, otherwise I dare not visit here again.

It’s a cash only sauna. The heaters are not working properly to keep you warm enough. It’s located in the gay areas, so lots of drunkards just came from the bars and clubs across street.

I went there a few days ago for the first time and to some extent I enjoyed the experience. The staff are friendly and helpful and generally the people attending were nice too. I didn't see any bad attitude. However, a couple of things struck me: 1) hygiene was glaringly absent. There was bad smell in a number of places and one could see that areas near toilets were not cleaned properly. 2) There was no lubricant to be seen and this is very risky as we all know why. I would still go there again and I hope management pay attention to constructive comments.

A lot to improve on.Steam room hasn't been working for years.Shower near sauna doesn't even have somewhere to hang your towel.Can be very cold for lack of heating and showers are very unpredictable for warm water!The place was a lot more on the ball when it had competition!

Decided to check out outside leisure sauna, finally. Really liked it there, very spread out, stayed there for about a full 10 hours. Got very busy during that time, and i got surprisingly lucky - dark room was major fun. Great atmosphere, both staff and crowd. Sauna was an oven - meaning it was in peak performance, i enjoyed being in it. The jacuzzi is indeed large, deeper than i thought too - i would say though that a tip would be BYOG to keep the water out your eyes - (bring your own goggles). I'll certainly return again, guys i definitely recommend visiting the place.

No soap in shower. Hard to clean even hands. Service bit poor.

Place is horrible, staff very unwelcoming and service is one of the worst. I’ve been in saunas around the world and this is by far the worst.

The thrill of being treated like $hit based on nothing but the way I look has worn off. Will I be back, probably... because there's nowhere else to go, will I be happy about it? Definitely Not.

Staff are very friendly apart from one bad egg. The place could do with a kick off paint. The floor in toilet could do with a good scrap deck scrub then moped. Upstairs the walls need cleaned. Also the shower needs scrub as it's never done. Beside the steats needs cleaned. The peep holes needs dusted the roofs off them. The seats needs cleaned and under them also the floors in them all five. No dusting done all over. No shower gel all used. Urials smell when they are blocked up. There BLEACH used at all . There needs to be Air fresheners around the place. Needs to be more than 4 cups. The walls in the main showers needs scrub. Dry Sunna would need moped out also bleached out.
