We came especially for the Getty Tour Launch and New Irish Arts Music conference. That already made it a very special and memorable experience for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the pre-concert dinner at Amadeus which in short, is dining like royalty at subjects' pricing. All staff throughout the day conference and evening concert were attentive and friendly. Venue is clean,... More

Visited this place for a concert last week. The venue is excellent, but the legroom between rows of seats needs some attention. It's rather cramped, especially when someone half way along your row wants to visit the Restrooms!

Visited the Waterfront Hall for a concert. The layout means that all the seats have a good view of the stage. The sound in the Auditorium is fantastic. One thing I didn't like on this visit which hadn't happened during previous visits, was that you were allowed to bring drinks into the concert. I always preferred the Waterfront to other... More

Firstly the staff here are incredibly friendly, you really felt that they not only wanted you to enjoy the conference but also enjoy your trip to Belfast as a whole. The venue is modern and clean with a variety of sized rooms for different types of break out sessions, and it was easy to navigate around. The only annoying thing... More
