“MP Bernadette Devlin was a student here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Queens is a beautiful old university situated in the nicest part of Belfast.
Famously Seamus Heaney studied here, and also Bernedette Devlin who at the age of 21 was elected into the British parliament the youngest woman ever to be an MP. She didn't finish her degree at Queens however, and there is no portrait in the Great Hall.

Good art gallery The Naughton is situated upstairs in what was the old telephone exchange.
Close to the Ulster Museum anf Botanic Gardens .

“Grand old university in the heart of Belfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Been to Belfast lots of times from Australia and went to Queens for the first time this trip. Was really impressed with the architecture, history and general vibe of the place. We had hop-on hop-off bus tickets which dropped us off at the door and spent a couple of hours there before walking through the gardens for a leisurely stroll back to Belfast. Well worth a look see.

Listened to Seamus Heaney here. I will neer forget the atmosphere created by his readings. Anyone who visits Belfast must not miss this visit.
