Amazing building

A free guided tour meant the half mile walk was so worth it. Amazing bit of history and lots of details. Usher was very good, very knowledgeable and it was really interesting.

4 of us were booked here for lunch and we couldn't fault it. We rated the service above all else. In a dining environment where it would be easy to promote pretence and snobbery, we found the opposite. We received a warm welcome, humour and efficiency in gorgeous surroundings. The menu was just extensive enough and it was good to... More

We didn't have time for a tour but wish we had! The interior is beautiful, the inside of the dome is gorgeous, and the stained glass is excellent!

It is part of our current history and has been the location of much intrigue. We only did an external viewing as short of time but glad we did. Couldn't drive up so parked and walked. Wish had done internal tour.

Worth a visit the interior is lovely and you can go into the debating chamber at certain times of day. The staff were very friendly and gave tips on the interior.

Stopped on the hop on hop off tour, mainly because it's free. It was an experience getting in - going through security etc - and it is a grand building once in. To call it a tour is a little misleading. We were meet in the hall by a nice lady who told us some more about the building. We... More

Interesting visit seen it on the TV lots of times, but looks better in real life. The grounds are huge we went as part of the bus tour.

If you get the Official Belfast tour bus it drops you off and picks you up here on its route. They offer a free tour at 11 and 3 every day which is a must do if you want to see the incredible decor and hear the history of the building - especially the ingenious way it avoided being damaged...

Stormont is absolutely well worth a visit. The grounds and setting are stunning. A lovely place for a wander, as the parliament building is set in fantastic & very large grounds. There's a kids playpark set in the grounds, so a visit there will keep them happy for a while. The view from outside the building is stunning, with a... More
