We were very impressed with the architecture, both inside and outside of this building. Unfortunately, the day we visited (a Saturday), tours were not available. We did manage to walk around the ground floor, and we admired the beautiful stained glass windows (each telling a story from Irish history), and also the ceilings with their graceful mouldings. I would recommend... More

The 72 west coast country liners from Scotland recently had a tour all round the city hall - the guides were informative and made our tour really interesting - thanks to Michael for organising this for our group - if you're on a city break to Belfast make sure you do this tour

We were lucky to be there when there was a lot of activity. Honestly not sure what was going on but lots of booths set up with international foods, etc. Maybe this is a regular occurrence this time of year. For us it was very enjoyable to walk through and visit different sellers…and we got some wonderful cheeses!

This free tour was available twice each Wednesday while I was there... I took it twice and would pay to take it. Lots of great historical and architectural information. Don't forget to try the tea house when you are finished.

Loved the historical artefacts, the windows, the quiet, the café/restaurant. The staff were helpful and knew their stuff. Plenty of seating for tired legs.

Took the tour of Belfast city hall on a wet autumn day. It is free! And the building is amazing. It is a step back in time to see the aspirations of a wealthy city's burgers telling the world who and what they were. Very elegant marble and terrazzo everywhere and a guide give an entertaining and informative pitted history... More
