Took my 6 month puppy to the park yesterday for the first time. She was nervous at the start but eventually enjoyed the running about with other dogs. There are all shapes and sizes there and all the owners are friendly. Will visit again it was fantastic.

Excellent free tour for about an hour. Our guide was very interesting he explained the history and why the building was so grand (to compete with Dublin!). The drive up to the building is magnificent, also the grounds. Well worth a visit.

A wet day in Belfast with visitors staying so I thought this would be a good way to fill a morning and be interesting to non locals. Stormont is a beautiful and iconic building with a sweeping tree lined driveway up to it. Free tours are available at 11:00 & 14:00 but please check. Mick(y) was our guide although unfortunately...

The beautiful grounds alone at Stormont are worth a visit but was very surprised to be allowed free access to the parliament buildings and the tours are also free - there is even the opportunity to sit and listen to committees in session if you choose to do so - very interesting day out.

Great to get the opportunity to visit Stormont and get a guided tour of the chamber and committee room. Well worth doing if you have the opportunity.

I went to Parliament Buildings twice last month. Once during the week with friends and then again on Heritage Day as more rooms were open to the public then. The whole place was amazing with its rich history and stunning architecture and the tour guides on both occasions were brilliant.

Went with couple of friends from England. Just quality experience - from security guards right through to knowledge and humour of our guide. Very interactive conversations with the locals/ US/ Irish/English and Spanish audience. We all left better for having been there - great history brought to life!

As you turn into the driveway you are treated to one of the most spectacular entrances to any building I have ever seen. The tour itself was also very interesting and the young lady who conducted it was first class mixing facts with the right amount of humour ensuring that it never became boring.
