Nice accommodation but food choice amazingly limited. We expected to enjoy a good lunch but only found soup to our taste. Would be better for those wanting large filled rolls, cakes and puddings.

We were all impressed by ‘The Troubles’ exhibition. Lots of other exhibitions and a lovely building so depends on how much time you have to spare.

You don't need tickets as it's free! There is a large see through box at the front entrance were you may make a donation. Enjoy your visit!
