Much of marble, high towers and pinnacles ... provides the most impression of an old palace, but acts more like a town hall to the public. Contains various exhibitions and just when we were there it was very much about the first world war - a very worth seeing and thoughtful photo exhibition in the park outside. The park also... More

What a beautiful building, attended a private dinner, with the added benefit of a guided tour, well worth a visit to see the building and the find out about its history. The guided tour is free, please do go and visit this magnificent building right in the heart of the city

#savehank #boycottbelfast #lethimgohome Belfast let Hank go home I don't advise people to come here to visit, avoid us at all costs if you are a dog lover and you want to bring your dog with you. We are not dog friendly! I repeat Belfast is not dog friendly

The memorial gardens, atrium, and cafe are all worth a visit. It's a stunning building. The memorials to the Titanic and WWI/WWII are beautiful.

Average coffee shop. this place really comes into its own around the twice yearly markets xmas and spring. The grounds are nice for a... More

We came fifteen minutes to 4:00 and went into city hall to sign in and get tickets for the tour. The guide was exceptional. His voice was strong and clear enough for our large group to hear. He was enthusiastic when he described the past and present paintings, furniture, 'business' of this building. The varieties of Italian and Greek marble... More

Free tours are offered daily. The building is beautiful and a definitely worth a visit. The grounds are filled with people in the summer evenings - very community oriented!
