The setting is stunning. The views down the long drive are magnificent. The building is immaculately maintained and resonates with modern historical associations. The free tour is slightly perfunctory in that only two rooms are visited but those two rooms are fascinating to be in....More

Run by clowns who are always in dispute of something or another and they get paid for doing absolutely nothing for the country.

They run regular free tours which was great, such a fantastic way to get behind the scenes and find out more about the history of Northern Ireland, the build and NI politics - would definitely recommend. You can also eat here in the summer months....More

We got our first view when on the hop on hop off bus tour. Went back next day for a stroll around the park. We went at weekend when unable to go inside but still worth a visit ( free).

Well worth visiting here for a free tour - there are even regular buses from the city centre to get here. See the site of the old Parliament of Northern Ireland and the current home of the Northern Ireland Assembly, sit in the Assembly chamber

Parliament for Northern Ireland. Set on huge open grounds which are open for walking or even picnicking around the peace memorial.

Sorry..I meant to add that Rev John Cleland and his family emigrated in 1893 and the newly formed Northern Ireland Parliament purchased the building and all 235 acres for what seems the bargain price of £21,000! The Cleland... More
Is it open on Sundays? If not, what other attraction would you recommend? We have one day and are planning on going to St. George's Mkt and to see the Peace Wall.

Titanic museum if you can squeeze it in.
How long does an average tour take please? And how long would you leave to see all the essential bits?
