  • This is a small museum but packed with fascinating information on James Connelly. The staff are very welcoming and there is a nice little coffee shop too.

  • Excellent, bilingual exhibitions with self-guided audio tour, detailing James Connolly's life from its beginnings in Scotland to his execution in Dublin in 1916. Nice cafe and good library collection too. Free entry to Belfast residents and a discount for trade union members. Staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Could easily spend all day in here (i often have!).
  • Great experience, truly acknowledges and dispays the brilliance of the man himself. Cafe was fantastic also. And regular meetings held for all types of community work. Well done to all involved with the centre👏
  • Fascinating museum and library exploring the life of James Connolly. Opened my eyes to his important role in trade unions organisation not only in Ireland but in the United States. People at the centre very welcoming and helpful, well worth a visit for anybody interested in exploring the history of ireland, irish socialism and trade unions movement at the start of the 20th century. Bravo to the centre's founders and staff.
  • James Connolly museum. Very informative excellent experience. Tells the story of one of our great leaders and signatory to the proclamation
  • A hidden gem that’s steeped in history right on our footstep. Food and service was excellent. Will definitely be back
