Ulster Hall

Ulster Hall Review

The historic Ulster Hall became the permanent home of the Ulster Orchestra shortly after the building reopened in 2009 following its multimillion-pound refit. At the gala civic ceremony on the reopening night the Orchestra played "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini" by Sergei Rachmaninov, who himself once played in the hall. The classical music season runs here from September through April. Concerts are mostly held on Fridays, but you can call or check online ( to learn about other dates and free open rehearsals and 50-minute lunchtime concerts. Apart from classical, the hall presents rock, folk, traditional Irish, blues, jazz, and other forms, along with comedy and cabaret acts. With its superb acoustics, Ulster Hall provides the perfect listening and foot-tapping experience.
