Have attended several official services here, can get very cold so wrap up warm even on a relatively mild day outside. Lots of memorial windows and artefacts to see, makes for an interesting tour inside and if you are fortunate to be able to chat to some of the clergy they are only too willing to share their knowledge.

The main reason I love this cathedral is the fact that it is simplistic, yet grand in nature. The cathedral has lots of variants throughout and its really interesting. This cathedral deserves the donation on entering as its so beautiful and has such a very peaceful and spiritual presence. Very moving cathedral with pretty simplistic features. I really liked it...

This was an interesting building to visit as it was only built in the last 100 years or so. Free entry, but with a "requested", optional donation. Nowhere near as grand or ornate - or impressive - as most buildings with the title cathedral but still worth just sitting for a moment and taking in the calm or the atmosphere.... More

the cathedral is a very splendid and beautiful building which allows you to look around at your own speed with a little leaflet in various languages giving you the history. A must to be seen

A very impressive cathedral in Belfast city. Beauiful building and very interesting. I liked the inside of the church the most, it had a very warm feel to the place and its seemed very homely. The windowns were interesting. Its very big inside and there was a lot of tourists inside the day we visited. Nice experience.

This beautiful old building on Donegall Street is Church of Ireland, and technically not a cathedral, as it does not house the seat of a bishop, but sure don't let that put you off!! It has a large spire on top, which can be seen from afar. It is the focal point of the Cathedral Quarter in the city.

A lovely church steeped in a lovely history to be enjoyed by both young and old.It stands tall and proud in the Cathedral Quarter of the city and makes a most imposing attraction for visitors and locals alike. We'll worth a visit

We enjoyed visiting the church. The inside was very nice. Moreover, there happened to be a church function and the members of the church were very nice to us.

A beautiful church, no admission fee ( donation box ), which welcomes you just to pop in for 10 mins to look around. Not threatening.
