Botanical gardens were on site, but obviously closed at night. Popped over to check out the Students' Union building on opposite side of road and was told by bouncers that there's a... More

I haven't done the tour just walked in and felt like a student. The uni has a beautiful well-maintained garden and building. Feels like Oxford or Harvard. The indoor garden is a great spot for reading on a sunny summer day. It has it's inspirational feeling. There was a wedding when we left with my sister, it's a special memory... More

Queen's University is beautiful. The architecture of the University is stunning and the grounds are kept nice. It is a great place to take memorable photos.

Take a wander around the grounds of this magnificent building, it is easy to get to and the gardens are lovely. There is a gift shop inside with lots of reasonably priced gifts from the Uni and also handmade things by local artists. Highly recommend this stop on your tour of Belfast.

Queen's University is worth a visit due to its beautiful style & setting. It is a great photo stop ! It was also interesting to hear the history on our tour. It takes less than an hour to tour this campus.

Lovely building - the day we went it was Graduation Day and it was too see all the students in their robes and family members in their finery and getting their photos taken. The Botanic Gardens are rights next door bur part of it was closed when we were there. We went over the road to Maggie Mays for lunch... More

Went here for a wedding reception in the great hall. catering was in house and the food was some of the best we've eaten at any function. Staff very well rehearsed as all the tables were served together so none of that ghastly business of the top table finishing their mains before the lowers ones have even begun the starter!

Architecturally, a masterpiece! The contrast between the architectural structure and the hub of young people in their various activities surrounding it, brings the old to blend with the present to create the future. Ulster Museum, Botanic Gardens and lots of eating places nearby.
