“Belfast City Centre - Linenhall Library”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

This building houses many interesting historical documents and is a great source for research projects. Close to the Public Records Office located in Titanic Quarter, and the Registrar's Office for family records.

“HISTORY!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

I visit the Linen Hall library regularly, from a great cuppa coffee good snacks, fantastic prints of old Belfast, a few of which I have in my home, if you want to relax after shopping or from sight seeing, this is a lovely place to visit, the Library holds an incredible wealth of history of Northern Ireland, from newspapers, politics, a great place to start if you're tracing realtives/ancestors etc, YOU MUST VISIT!!
