This is a must see if you are in Belfast, I didnt even think of going until the hotel staff suggested it! a mile walk up to the building surrounded by woodland and at the top you have an excellent view of Belfast city. Didnt get to go in but will be back!

We were on a Belfast hop on hop off bus tour. We stopped at Stormont to see the Parliament building. We entered through security and checked the place out. The amount available to see when you consider the size of the building is pretty limited. They are not keen on people doing any sort of self guided tour, perhaps if... More

We hopped off the city sightseeing tour to visit Stormont. An absolute amazing building and the grounds are breathtaking. We managed to arrive in time for one of the free guided tours with Micky as our guide. He was superb and gave us a full potted history of the layout of the building and the significance of its design. We... More

Had planned to tour Stormont, a good afternoon, entertaining for both adults and our 3 young children 8 years and under. Tour delivered in a very interesting, entertaining and non-political way. There is an excellent children's playpark at the bottom of the hill - Mo Mowlam park, we returned several times to this on our holiday, plenty of different areas... More

Visited the Mo Mowlam playpark with my grandson today. It is a great facility. There are a wide variety of climbing frames, slides and swings available for children of all ages and a number of seats for parents to relax. There are also picnic tables and facilities for barbeques. Importantly, it is free! You'll pay to use another similar park... More

The Stormont of my childhood has virtually gone. Every time I go there now I see more flowerbeds and artificial looking pathways. Twee areas and less woodland and areas for wildlife. I think the powers that be must have the remainder of their budgets to spend before the end of the financial year. Now dogs have to be on a... More

We visited as part of the open top bus tour. It was a beautiful building and great to visit such an iconic part of N.Ireland political history. Only 2 tours were running on the day we visited but not at appropriate times for us and unfortunately no other information was readily available to us other than an information leaflet. I... More

This was part of a city tour and did not expect to be able to pull up outside the steps in our coach. We did however have to pass through a security gate first. The person on duty just said to our driver 'are you's just going for a drive ?' to which the driver said 'aye' and that was... More
