“Saturday visit”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Very informative but the guide was a tad bit pompous . Tried to be funny but missed by a long shot. Constantly going on about the time and size of group and that he had another tour in an hour. Just as well it was free there was no chance of a tip

“Don't Skip this One”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Although one may only visit Belfast City Hall by way of one of the 3 daily tours offered, it's worthwhile doing so. The tour last just short of an hour and will take you thought the state rooms of the building. The building is most impressive and offers an insight into Belfast's history, more recent past and the role it had to play in Irish independence and creation of Northern Ireland as part of the UK. Guides and friendly and welcoming.

“A Belfast icon”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

I am biased because we got married here, and the staff were amazing. This is a beautiful building (there is an almost identical one in Durban, South Africa as well), despite being the focal point for so much strife in the province. The architecture is fascinating, and they are trying to make it a focus for both communities, with new portraits and stained glass windows to reflect the changing times. Definitely worth a visit.
