Recently went on a tour of Parliament Buildings when visiting Belfast. The local bus 20 takes you there from outside City Hall right to stormont. Once inside via the security centre you can grab a coffee while you wait for the tour. Micky who took our tour made everyone feel very welcome by asking where people were from and his... More

The effort it takes to get here will be amply rewarded by the excellence for guided tour. Recommended way of arrival is via the Hop On Hop Off bus - catch the 10.00am bus from Castle Place to arrive at Stormont for the 11.00am tour, you will have time for a coffee first. The tour lasts around 50 minutes, so... More

Easy to get to by public transportation and walk up the hill. And that walk is essential in terms of getting a feel for how the architecture works. We had a great guide -- Micky -- and the information was presented in an accessible and fun way. A few late additions to the guided tour (a group of 20 some... More

Massive building when you're near it. Beautiful structure and the guide told us everything about what the building is about.

Don't be put off by the security, it is no different to the airport and after all it is their 'Parliament' the Northern Ireland Assembley NIA Once inside the building take the tour of the Chambers, if they are open to the Public. The guide on my tour was very informative and albeit the media were crowded around because of... More

We stayed at the Stormont hotel which was only across the road. So we decided to see Stormont itself. The grounds are very impressive, rows on rows of trees, nice Boardwalk areas to explore etc. Did not do a tour or go inside as it was a Sunday and also raining, so we headed home. Worth seeing, give an hour... More

As detailed above, this is a review of lunch in the NI Assembly's Members' Dining Room. We were completely unaware there were lunch facilities available to members of the public and a friend mentioned someone known to them had visited and were impressed. The dining room is set on the first floor immediately above the entrance. To access it, you... More

We had a couple of hours to kill whilst in Belfast and decided to visit the parliament building at Stormont. The driveway leading up to the building is beautiful and the building itself, impressive. Staff on security, reception, at the gates and on the tour were helpful and friendly. Coming from London, I was really surprised that entry, parking and... More
