This building is an excellent example of Victorian confidence and pride. It is something of which Belfast must be justly proud. we were given an interesting tour by an enthusiastic guide, shown the various chambers, staircases and stained glass windows. We also enjoyed very reasonably priced tea and cakes at the coffee shop. The service was prompt and the staff... More

We were paying a brief visit to Belfast and want to see the City Hall as is it an impressive building both inside and out. We were restricted from seeing much of the outside as they were preparing for a festival to start the next day. We did however see the monument to the people on the Titanic in the... More

Belfast City Hall is possibly one of the most beautiful City Hall's anywhere. It could easily be mistaken for a cathedral, with its stained glass windows & towers. Free to look around, this should be on your "To do list" if you visit Belfast.

A tip from tour guide recommended we take this 45 minute "free" tour of City Hall. Very glad we did. The architecture, marble columns throughout, mahogany wood workmanship, the artwork, was extraordinarily beautiful. The history of this building alone is incredible. Our tour guide was very informative and funny. Outside there is also a wall with all the names of... More

Anyone may wander around the City Hall free of charge and explore this impressive building and the historical artefacts on display. In particular, the stained glass windows - many recently commissioned and reflecting the history of Belfast - are superb. a pleasant cafe/restaurant offers light refreshment. A conducted tour is also available for a small fee.

We weren't sure whether to visit Belfast but we were glad that we did. City Hall is just one of many architectural wonders in this lovely city. Our main problem was that we only had two days in our ititinerary for Belfast and one needs more than that to uncover all its hidden gems.
