Create an itinerary including City Hall
The central location and gardens of City Hall attract workers on their lunch breaks, as well as students seeking a patch of green between classes. The gardens are full of statues and memorials commemorating various historical figures and events, including a statue of Queen Victoria, a granite column paying homage to the American Expeditionary Force, and a Titanic memorial. The building itself still operates, so much of it is closed off to the public, but the facade is worth a photo. Take a stroll through the gardens, or join the ranks on the benches with your lunch. PutCity Hall into our Belfast planning website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Great free experience. The building is beautiful and there’s a very good exhibition too, with a balanced history of the city. Decent cafe too.

  • City Hall is brilliant. I visited Belfast City Hall during my trip to Belfast this year. I wasn’t able to visit previously because of closure during Covid on a previous trip I made. The wait was worth it as I was amazed by the stunning architecture and design of this building. There was a exhibit put on when I visited about the history of building, the people of Belfast, and the vision of the town. The entire exhibit was a delightful experience learning. There is a cafe inside of city hall that supports people with autism. The food was delicious that I ordered from the cafe. I had the tomato soup and bread with butter. The building is kept up with and the grounds is well maintained. The employees of Belfast City Hall were all knowledgeable and helpful in my experience.
  • It's a lovely building - go inside and see for yourself! The staff are very helpful too. On a clear sunny day you can do a lot worse than sit in the grounds and watch the world go by. I highly recommend the marble masterpiece inside. Also on a warm day it is always beautifully cool and pleasant inside.
  • Centrally located in downtown, this is a building worth admiring thanks to its design and monumental size. The entrance is free to the exhibition downstairs but I learned that there are free guided tours as well. It was definitely interesting to learn about the history of home rule and about iconic Irish individuals throughout modern history. Make sure to visit the Titanic memorial which is just outside the building.
  • It is not possible to miss the Belfast City Hall when you get into the city centre. It is dominates buildings around the local metro bus Centre and the city centre as well. In November and December each year there is every year for six weeks a Christmas Market on front of the Building in the park of the City Hall and that gather many people around this building. When was not pandemic also over christmas time the entry was open to visitors get in. Normally inside in the entry hall is standing by very nice Christmas three with nice decoration. So looking forward get in again when the pandemic is over. Over summer is also nice sitting outside of the building there in the park and take relax. Overall nice place I recommend to visit with the Belfast Castle which is a couple miles away of this place away, but still is Worth visiting.
  • Beautiful building that offers pride of place in the city centre. The stained glass windows are beautiful. The free exhibition is well worth a visit too. It covers everything that is Belfast - including history, society, industries, politucs and famous sons and daughters.
