We were at PRONI lecture and felt the need of a light snack afterwards (around 2.15pm. Unfortunately this place feels more like a staff canteen than a cafe or restaurant. It is in a lovely new building but the cafe feels a bit bleak. Service bordered on the incompetent and the food was very ordinary. OK it does not set... More

What a fantastic modern building in the heart of Titanic Quarter! Great access to historical records with very friendly and helpful staff. A little known feature is the conference facility for small groups - perhaps up to 100?

I went to PRONI where I met a local genealogist I hired to help me finish my family history. The resources were extensive, and helped me to answer my questions. And the cafeteria was great too!

Located near the Titanic Quarter of Belfast, this new building is spacious, clean and well planned for the researcher. If you are interested in reading this review then you know that the public records office holds those records for Northern Ireland and many for the three counties of Ulster that are still part of Ireland, Fermanagh, Monaghan and Armagh.

I came here for a conference a few months ago and I was really impressed with the facility and I didn't take time to delve into the archives, but I think the space will be more impressive as Titanic Quarter expands and develops. For now, it still feels a bit like an untapped area with much needed potential and growth.... More

Archives staff was tremendously helpful. Process for viewing records ran very smoothly. Nice purpose-built building, although a bit off the beaten path from the main area of the city.
