Hard to miss, this is a dramatic building standing alongside the River Lee. Best seen from across the river and perhaps at night when you get the reflections in the water.

The city hall is a wonderfull old building with alot of charm .I have been to functions.Shows and fairs there.Unfortunately i have found that the staff there are the most unfriendly i have ever met anywhere.They are unhelpfull and give you the feeling you are not welcome.

We had the pleasure of attending a concert in this venue last Sunday and found it to be a great location with easy access. However the seats could do with being replaced otherwise the venue and the concert were a fantastic experience

Went to the City Hall last Saturday and Sunday to watch the election count. It was a bit mad with people flying around trying to find out the results of the various counts in the election.

I have been to this hall on numerous occasions for concerts, balls etc and I have enjoyed each visit equally. The staff are very helpful and kind. The hall I'd kept in exquisite condition and the staff pride themselves on the beauty of it. There are great views all around it and it is truly a masterpiece of art.
