Attended a talk featuring writer David Sedaris last night, with tickets booked via Ticketmaster, delivered to our home, and subsequently lost by our toddler in a super fun game of hide-mommy-and-daddy's-tickets. The staff at Ulster Hall were superb, confirming our details and creating tickets on the spot for us. The venue itself was beautiful, easily accessible, and the seating in... More

Great architecture. Amazing piped organ the centre piece of the hall. Small venue and the one that kept Belfast rocking during the troubles. Original and best.

Led Zeppelin played here. Rory Gallagher lived here. Michael Schenker threw my tape machine at the wall in the kitchen after an interview. And now they do beer. Balcony, bouncy floors and Robert Plant. Great place for a gig.

This was my first visit and was lucky enough to experience the Ulster Orchestra playing The Star Wars Saga. It was literally breath taking. On the final piece there was a clash of cymbals that was superb ☺️ All that set in this beautifully ornate building with fantastically moulded plaster ceilings, historical pictures and painting covering every aspect of Belfast's...

I was here for the Hear my Words concert, featuring the Belfast Philharmonic Choir, and the kids’ equivalent, the Belfast Philharmonic Chamber Choir. That was very good, but how is the venue? Handy location for train or bus travel, not far from Great Victoria Street Station. The exterior is very ornate, all chamfered quoins, Corinthian capitals, leafy ironwork and faces... More

Concerts by the Ulster Orchestra, in the Ulster hall, are highlights not to be missed. World-class music making in beautiful surroundings.

Have just been to a rock concert by Europe here and what a lovely old building, I love to find out more about its history and attend more events here. It has good access, clean facilities and lovely ornate wall decorations, see the photo. The sound travelled well and it had upper level seating, i hope to visit it again... More

I have been to concerts in several different music venues in a number of different cities, London, Dublin, New York, and the Ulster Hall cannot be bettered. The Ulster Hall was designed and built for music and any band that can't get a good sound in this hall must be doing something terribly wrong. Over the years I have seen... More
