Lovely visit

Amazing building in what can only be described as a wonderful city. Culture is all over and this is no different. Lovely grounds and an amazing view.

Wandered into here whilst a wedding was going off. We weren't in very long but we both were really impressed with the building, liked the stained glass windows too.

I have been in the City Hall a couple of times I will always remember my first in 2007 when I was 13 and my most recent in 2015. I was so proud during my both visits. My mum and my granny had spent so much time in City Hall before I was born so it was reminiscing for them.... More

We had a openning planery here in the city hall, and i must say that the hall is in tip top shape, everything was perfect, the food, drinks, music and service. I recommend doing any planery there.

We took a brief walk around and through this building. It is quite beautiful. If you are interested in architecture and monument-buildings, this would be for you. If you are wandering around Belfast, it is worth a quick stop-by.

Three words: Magnificent, magnificent, magnificent. You would never believe a small city would have such a palace, a jewel. Built at great cost in the early 1900s it remains is a testament to the spirit of the citizens of this great city. Just walk within these walls to enjoy grandeur that represents our pride in the wonder of Belfast.

When is there ever a tour for free ?? Well, surprisingly : City Hall Belfast. As soon as you walk in, you're surrounded by marble, and stunning stained glass windows .. the staircase isn't bad either. The tour only lasts about 40 minutes, but were allowed into Council Chambers, which is equivalent to House of Commons, Westminster. I even got... More

We got there 30 minutes before closing, so to be fair, we didn't get to see all that much. It is a beautiful building! We were able to go through the main floor area, but didn't get to see much else. I would have liked to take the tour. The grounds of City Hall are also beautiful. The Titanic memorial... More

This was a free tour in a beautiful building. Also a very interesting look into the history and politics of Belfast.
