“The family church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

My maternal grandparents were married in Belfast Cathedral. Both have long since gone - but is was comforting to think of each of them whilst seated in the cathedral. I also recalled memories from my childhood - of attending concerts and choir rehearsals within the cathedral adding to the importance of the building to my family history.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This cathedral was absolutely lovely! I found it simpler than some other cathedrals that I have visited but I loved that about this one. There was this one smaller room that had angels painted on the ceiling, amazing. We pulled in to the parking lot and completely missed the sign that said Saturday Parking £4 all day, rather we read parking £4 all day. When the bar wouldn't come up we rang the buzzer and the woman let us park there even though it wasn't Saturday, what a welcoming gesture! Definitely need to visit if going to Belfast.

“Remembrance Sunday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

An outstanding Cathedral, accessible and with several attractive features: stained glass is rewarding. Stewards are very helpful.
Remembrance Sunday Service was memorable with a fine Sermon, and the later performance of Faure Requiem excellent with the voice of a Boy Treble the best we have heard for many a year.

A really beautiful church with a welcoming atmosphere. I liked the restored sections and the new spire.
