I was one of a group of (mature) trainee tour guides from Belfast Metropolitan College who visited the Stormont Estate and Parliament Buildings as part of our course. We did the free guided tour around the inside of Parliament Buildings with Shane as our guide. And he was excellent - very knowledgeable and easy to hear and understand even though... More

Used to work in Storming Estate and visit the public park quite often for a walk in the park. Beautiful grounds and great views over Belfast from Carson's statue and higher up at Parliament Buildings. The Estate is routinely on the Belfast City Tour and free guided tours are available during July, August, Easter and Halloween breaks operating on the... More

Excellent trip around Parliament buildings. The guide was first class and very knowledgeable. Beautiful surroundings and some amazing facts to be learned about the history of Belfast and Northern Ireland.

Love this part of stormont...absolutely excellent for getting dogs socialised and out to blow off some steam. There should be one of these in every borough. Any time we have been it has been well maintained!

Guided tour was excellent, the building itself is beautiful and well worth a visit. We also sat in on a parliamentary debate about integrated education which was interesting, but found it quite difficult to keep quiet.

Stormont Parliament buildings are located in the large parklands of the Stormont Estate. Prince of Wales Avenue lined with 2 rows of twig lime trees leads to the front door of parliament & is a truly grand kilometre. The building is neo-classical style of glistening white stone which was covered in cow manure during WW11 so that night aircraft bombers... More

Recently went on a tour of Parliament Buildings during a familiarisation trip for work. I hadn't been on this tour for years and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Mickey was our tour guide, he was interested to know where we were from etc which was really nice and personalised the experience for me. He was a great... More

We jumped off the tour bus for a free guided showing of the parliament buildings. I tend to like visiting parliaments wherever I go, and this one seemed like a 'Must Do' considering Northern Irelands history. Our tour was much more casual than I was expecting but incredibly informative. I learned lots of neat things about the building, the decor... More

Very impressive buildings and pretty estate grounds. The information boards at the start of the mile and next to the statue are really informative.
