Belfast City Hall
Vacation Travel Guide

Relax amid the sculptures, monuments and plants of the garden and take a tour of the Baroque-style interior of this historic site.

The green domes of Belfast City Hall are proud symbols of the capital of Northern Ireland. The hall’s primary use is for the city council to gather and discuss policies, but its pleasant green areas and open courtyard attract students and vacationers. Learn about Belfast’s fascinating past at the site responsible for city government.

The Baroque Revival structure was built in 1906 from Portland stone. Capture photos of the elegant white façade with its columns, arches, pediment and domed towers. Enter the building through its large portal and take a free tour of the halls and rooms. Experienced guides lead the tours, which last about an hour.

Appreciate the opulence of the interior, which has marble features, a grand staircase and a large ballroom. Admire the intricate stained-glass windows.

See the majestic structure at night, when white lights give it a powerful glow. The site makes use of its lighting system to shine in various colors that mark events such as Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and Christmas.

Walk around the Titanic Memorial Gardens, which pay tribute to those who lost their lives on the doomed ship. The huge vessel was built nearby. Read the plaque of names of the more than 1,500 victims of the 1912 disaster at sea. The gardens, located on the east side of City Hall, opened in 2012 to mark the 100th anniversary of the tragedy. Sit at a bench and enjoy the serene ambiance among the sculptures and plants.

The site of the building was once an important trade complex for the Linen Exchange. Tours are available several times per day all week. Visit the building and its coffee shop between morning and late afternoon, when it closes. The site is free to enter. Note that the building is undergoing refurbishments until summer 2017.

Belfast City Hall is on Donegall Square in the heart of Northern Ireland’s capital. Nearby attractions include Victoria Square Shopping Centre, the Linen Hall Library and the Grand Opera House.
