“Splendor. So well maintained”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

If you get the chance to attend a concert in this historic venue, you will not be disappointed. Grand stage with one of the biggest organs in Ulster. The balcony has been refurbished in plush seats...a gem.

“Good for the area?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We were staying in the area for a weekend. Later in the evening of nov 10th we walked past this venue at what was presumably kicking out time.

Within a loud busy city centre the situation outside of this venue at approx 11:30 stood out and epitomised much that can be bad about late night city life.

Smokers , fighters and rolling drunks congregating blocking the road and foot path with no sign of dispersing nor any sign of any security or organisation from the venue.

The detritus and mess from them was still there next morning.

Whilst some elements of the patrons behaviour is outside the control of the venue surely they should make an effort to comply with licensing requirements.

This was our only negative experience in this lovely city.

“Interesting facts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Ulster Hall is located just a few blocks from the City Hall so it can be easily squeezed in a tour. There is a permanent exhibition with a line of time that summarizes the building´s milestones, some of which may be worth a look.

“History in a Concert Hall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

A beautiful, recently restored concert hall. If you get a chance go to hear a concert by the Ulster Orchestra. There are many events throughout the year

“amazing history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I came on this building by chance, the history is fasinating, considering this building has been under threat so many times in it's history, it's a wonder it survived, well worth a visit.
