A free tour with an interesting and entertaining guide (Mickey). We were able to sit in the seats used by the representatives. A must for anyone interested in the history and politics of Northern Ireland. There were lovely grounds but we did not have time to explore - we'll save it for a return visit!

Fantastic and interesting venue. Striking building both inside and out and worth a visit. Would be of interest to anyone who is interested in the politics and history of Northern Ireland.

Called into here on the red bus tour. Lovely building, gardens are beautiful. As you drive through the gates you go through a security check point, well worth a visit.

Our tour was organized for us by the U.S. Embassy and it was more than worth the time. We watched both houses engaged in actual debate about important bills. The Leinster House, where parliament is housed, is a beautiful building and also worth touring.

Stormont house is in the most beautiful setting it is really worth a visit just to walk up the top of the hill and looked down over Belfast. Inside the main hall and the debating chamber were very beautiful with lots of different artwork

Free to enter, the Parliament Buildings are well worth going to see, we had an excellent guide who walked you through the areas explaining the history and how it works in NI. You are able to sit inside the chambers and take pictures as well.

Aside from the fools on the hill who run our country, this is otherwise a great attraction and worthy of a visit. You can just lay around the park all day and read a book, or you can take the dog for a walk. There's great statues and bits of history to find too.

Got a dog, bring it here (and pick up after it). Wander through the expanse of grounds and wonder how on earth such a fine set of architecturally lovely buildings could house such a useless waste of human beings (1932 to present)

The building and driveway area are beautiful but the tour wasn't to my taste. The depth of information about the building materials and past uses of the rooms wasn't of interest to me personally. Felt I had wasted time by getting of the tour bus and waiting for a tour. The great hall and two parliamentary rooms are open to... More

Well, to begin... the two are not synonymous, so why link them? One is for privileged, publicly subsidised, money/allowance- grabbing 'Public Representatives.'... yet regular Estate visitors - including dog-walkers - often 'Unofficial custodians of the Estate', are disparaged / threatened.... Pardon the Americanism.... but... kinda CHEAP politics, ain't it?!
