The Ulster Hall dates back to 1862 and lies in the heart of the city. The interesting yellow-bricked balcony and wrought ironwork add to the building's attractions. The Ulster Hall is among Belfast's premier venues, catering for concerts ranging from the Manic Street Preachers to organ recitals, rock gigs to Rimsky-Korsakov. Political rallies and debates are also held here. Most importantly of all, however, the Ulster Hall is a popular venue for the world-renowned Ulster Orchestra. Look out for the organ pipes of one of the most valuable organs in the world that dominate the back of the hall, as well as the acclaimed historical paintings of Belfast that line the walls.
