We wandered into the city hall for a quick look and as luck would have it a free guided tour was starting in 5 minutes. The tour took about 45 minutes and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. A fantastic building and well worth a tour on an afternoon in town.

Not much to see when we went as was under refurbishment. The bits we did see were beautiful, especially the stained glass windows. Maybe a place to visit to pass the time but not a must see until fully open.

Right opposite our hotel, Ten Square. A free tour that was absolutely fascinating. The building is beautifully constructed and embellished, it is an extraordinary monument to the wealth of Belfast at that time. Lots of small details such as the stained glass , the monuments and the amazing marble. I would suggest not missing this visit- and it does not... More

Outstanding building, totally worth going on one of the free tours. Worth checking times of tours and booking in early as they get very busy. Our tour guide Michael was very good and informative. The building is unbelievable inside and absolutely wonderful to see. The tour lasts about an hours but goes so fast. Highly recommend.

We visited Northern Ireland around the Christmas holidays and I think that is the best time to visit this beautiful city Belfast. Lots of festivities, crowd, and entertainment.We really enjoyed a small market in the City Hall arena.
