This church was a part of our 'Black Cab' tour and it was wonderful to hear of the part it played in the history of Belfast's problematic past. Highly recommend a visit to see the wonderful architecture.

Visited this Church during our recent stay in Belfast, which is situated a few minutes walk from the City Hall. My great-grandparents had married there in the late 19th Century, and it was quite a moment to walk inside this beautiful church.

Beautifully restored with a vibrant interior. It's an unusual design with the altar all along one wall of what would normally be the side of the nave.
