Lovely Catholic Church in Centre of Belfast
Mar 2020
St. Malachy's is a gem of a church in the centre of Belfast.
Make sure you walk up to the middle to see the wonderful ceiling.

Beautiful church at the heart of the city
Dec 2019
The church is very beautiful inside, with a lovely vaulted white ceiling and a painted altarpiece. The Mass times are very convenient and the Mass on Sunday was celebrated well - would go again.

A Spectacular Church
Oct 2019
We popped into the church as it was opposite where we were staying at the Premier Inn and I´d seen photos of its spectacular interior in a guide book. A beautiful tranquil space close to the business quarter and city centre.

Unexpected in a church - it's so pretty!
Sep 2019
I was glad we visited this church, as I thought the interior was quite different to other churches I have seen - it's so pretty! The colours are light, there's plenty of light, the set-up is somewhat unusual, too. It all looked very well maintained and cared for, whomever is in charge of this property is doing a very good job. Well worth a visit, I was pleasantly surprised!

Beautiful Church
Sep 2019 • Friends
We drove from Dublin, stayed at Hampton Inn Belfast Center. We had drove around Belfast and found the church earlier in the day, but parking looked problematic. Luckily it was a short walk from hotel to go to Mass. It is a beautiful church and be sure to look up at the ceiling. The sermon was great, and we talked to one of the deacons afterwards who told us about the history of the church and even gave us advice on what to see on our 2 week drive around Ireland and then of course, welcomed us to come back next time we are in Belfast. If we are we will.

CHURCH WORTH VISITING

A lovely interior in this Belfast Church with some history. It can be compared with other Churches and historical sites.

Interesting and unique Gothic revival church
Jun 2019
I have visited (and photographed) many churches all over the world, and this is one is one of the more unusual ones. This is a church in the Gothic revival style from the middle of the 19th century. It looks a bit like a Gothic castle from the outside, but it is the inside that shines. The inside is very delicate and ornate, mostly in white but with interesting color accents. The visually most stunning part is the intricate fan vaulting. This is a gem of a church, definitely worthy of a detour.
