Stunning building

Really beautiful building, both inside and out. The Victoria Square car park on Cromac Street is a good spot for walking around the city centre and visiting City Hall

Like Glasgows City Chambers much Italian marble is in evidence and the particular variety used here is unique to the city. Numerous rooms & chambers visited and only had to turn up 10 minutes before hand to get our place on the tour. It's free but a donation is merited.

City Hall is a lovely historic building. I love the stained glass windows that have been commissioned which have some of the history of Ireland on them. While we were there there was a wedding being held, which was nice, but we didn't go on any tours. Worth a visit and a half hour wander through.

This building is very well preserved and we had the chance to see a ceremony for the Irish athletes coming back from the Olympics in Rio...

The exterior of the building is very impressive. We did not go inside. The Titanic Memorial Garden is very moving and worth appreciating in some detail if you have any interest in the story of the Titanic

The magnificent City Hall in Belfast is well worth a visit. To make it even better time your visit to coincide with the free tour that is given a few times a day. The tour lasts about 50 minutes and you get to see and learn about many of the historic features that cant be seen on your own. An... More

We usually attend the cafe on site but the rest off the City Hall is rich in history. Definitely worth a visit for tourists and locals alike.

This is well worth an hour or so. Sign up early as it can be busy. Paul, our guide was excellent. The story of the City Hall and of Belfast is an interesting one. Highly recommended.

City Hall is a very large Victorian building in the center of Belfast. There is a large statue of Queen Victoria in front. This is an expression of Brit power and authority in Belfast.
