Don't miss this - the government has just refurbished the entire - at a cost of £10 - what a job. Ask about a quick tour - it's amazing - gives a real historical insight - thanks to Gerry for the tour - he gives a whistle stop history lesson - with passion and humour

The history of the city is there for all to see. Well worth discovering the old city and the new city.

This is the most beautiful building! It is so both inside and out. History is told through the magnificent stained glass windows which are a must see. The pipe organ is amazing, and the reception is warm, friendly and humorous. Guided tours are a must and the exhibition is fascinating.

Oddly enough I have never visited the Guildhall before but it is looking resplendent since the renovation a few years back. The building is a master-piece with magnificent wood carvings. It survived the worst excesses of IRA car bombs. There is a fantastic organ in the great hall and very detailed stained glass windows. However the highlight for me was... More

If windows could talk? Well they can't but Gerry can! Gerry took us on a tour of the stained glass windows in the main hall. I've always considered myself to be pretty reasonably well versed in Irish history yet I gained insight after insight from Gerry. He's very knowledgeable, proud of his city & an asset to the Guildhall. Must... More

The plantation exhibition downstairs is interesting, with dressing up for kids and video presentations. That kept their attention for 30-45 mins. But Gerry's twice daily tour of the great hall is the star attraction. Its a 40 minute romp through European history from the perspective of this great city. Do you know who is the Devil's Advocate or Jack the... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We attended a concert there during the Other Voices festival and were gobsmacked by the hall, with its wonderful organ and amazing stained glass windows.
