Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Custom House building in Belfast would have been an important building in the past with records needing to be kept of boats arriving and setting sail for distant places. The building is not far from the riverside. If you are a fan of grand buildings it's worth checking out.

A well appointed building with a plaza outside, which sadly looks like it's all closed up. The steps has a brass sculpture of "The Speaker" with a few brass footprints on the ground. A blue plaque memorialises Anthony Trollope working there at one point.

Whether you pass by during the day or see it in its full splendour lit up at night, it’s worth taking a photo or 2, the city really knows how to preserve it’s building

The Customs House of Belfast stands opposite the Lagan Weir and The Big Fish Sculpture. The building is closed to the public, but even from the outside, it's a magnificent and elegant building in the Italianate style.

The front of the building contains a bronze statue of a man talking to an empty crowd as a reminder that the Custom House steps were once a speakers' corner. On the waterfront side, the pediment has sculptures of Britannia, Neptune and Mercury.

Definitely worth a look if in Belfast especially as many of the landmarks of Belfast are in this area.

This building stands in an awful setting with empty plazas on two sides and traffic on two sides. The building stands aloof and detached from the pedestrian on the plaza. There was a display panel telling me that it was a wonderful building. There are plenty of wonderful Victorian buildings in Belfast. This one looks like it has been taken out of its environment and placed in a building museum. Joni Mitchell- you were right.

The customs house is a stunning building that is sadly let down by the run down buildings around it! Still you have to admire what a stunning building the customs house is and its history etc.

Great venue for outside gig an natural amphitheater.
Every where you stand you get a good view
Lots of toilet and places to get drinks and food but drinks were very expensive so be warned. Also the beer was dreadful
The bands made up for that and the atmosphere rocked.

Magnificent old building oozing history. Located near the fountain and waterfront and worth including in your downtown wanderings.
