We were only here for a couple of hours en route from a day at The Giants Causeway and what a wonderful stop it was...My only wish was that we had more time to spend here browsing through the wonderful Christmas shops as I was sipping the best hot chocolate. The vendors that they chose to be a part of... More

Dont miss this place. The interior is gorgeous and the lobby alone is worth a trip inside. They have informative displays and plenty to see and do while there. We did not take a tour but were happy we stopped

great tour especially given that it was free. The council chamber is very interesting and the opportunity to take some photos from across the political divide is too good to be missed. The ballroom is amazing. All in all a very beautiful building and great venue for lunch.

Great building to walk around, although unless you visit via an event you are unlikely to leave the ground floor which is a pity as the upstairs has some great artwork and architecture. Well worth a visit!

Have attended wedding here and also called in purely for the coffee shop. Exhibit at coffee shop was very interesting and coffee shop at the time we visited offered good food at reasonable price, although not a coffee shop to delay too long in as the seating was although adequate, not overly comfortable. Do remember toilets were reasonably clean too.

City Hall's beautiful architecture is not to be missed. Jackie was a great guide, giving us a lot of information about City Hall and answering any questions we had. The history behind the building was interesting and I thought it tied up pretty well with the Titanic Belfast experience, which I was at right before this tour.
