This really is an impressive building. Well worth seeing the inside, although the tour was a little disappointing. Would have preferred more information about how the City Council operates.

Great to visit while the Christmas market is there. Nice to sit out front during summer too. Haven't done any of the tours personally but I've heard they're good.

We just wanted to pop by for a photo and it looked beautiful - with the sunlight, it was gorgeous. Nothing more really to say about it as it’s closed on a Sunday!

The free tour of the City Hall was really interesting. Our guide was really insightful and clearly enjoyed telling us about the place. I was impressed by how much they allowed visitors to see and the amount of information celebrating Belfast.
