Impressive
Jul 2021
Being a Sunday, we did not expect the building to be open, but it was! With free entry, and a very secure one way and COVID safe system in place, we felt really comfortable wandering around. The stained glass windows throughout were fascinating to see, and the grand hall was very impressive.
At the end of the tour the little cafe was open, with seats outside overlooking the river. A great place to visit.

Magnificent stained glass
Aug 2021
This building is fabulous with some magnificent stained glass. The building needed some reconstruction after the Troubles, so it is not all original

Interesting building and small exhibition
Sep 2021 • Couples
Worth 45 mins to see the building and the small exhibition, the latter having some overlap with the more comprehensive Tower museum. Free entry and worth the stop within a day’s itinerary.

Excellent free exhibition
Sep 2020 • Friends
Beautiful building with interesting history. Currently has a free exhibition on plantations which clearly had a lot of thought and effort put into it. Some parts of it was changed/limited due to Covid but it was still very enjoyable. Worth a visit.
