We were fortunate enough to arrive at City Hall just before a free guided tour was due to start. Our guide, Arthur, was welcoming and full of enthusiasm for this beautiful building and it's treasures. He had another tour due to start straight after ours so time for asking questions was limited, but we could tell that he wanted to... More

What a great visual experience as you look up on entering! This building is impressive on the outside but take the time to wander its corridors and exhibitions. You wont be disappointed.

This building is the quintessential centre point of Belfast city, it is worth travelling inside to see the beautiful marble and dome. However I did not see a tour available, building lovers will like this building.

Very beautiful building but that's it, not a great deal to see apart from the building but wasn't really expecting much more, but my journey was to see some sights and the building was a wonderful sight to see

Spacious eating area with good variety of 'homemade' food. Staff give you time to enjoy your lunch and not rush around clearing your table just as you finish eating. Prices average and we visit this 'cafe' each time we visit Belfast.

This is a beautiful and interesting building. The free tour is excellent, lasts around 50 minutes and allows access to a number of civic rooms. The carpets are stunning! Well worth a visit.
