Had a friend from Colombia come over and stay in Northern Ireland for a few days and hadn't visited the city hall in years. There were 3 FREE guided tours throughout the day which took you round the most important rooms and gave you some interesting nuggets of information about Belfast. Totally recommend- my Colombian bud loved it!

The escorted tour takes just under an hour. It is a very historic and attractive building with some magnificence rooms. We sat in the seats in the Counsel Hall while we were given information on the counsel, and one could have ones photograph taken while sitting in the Mayor's chair. As this was just after Christmas, we were also impressed... More
