Hiring the Ulster Hall


The beautifully restored Ulster Hall is available to hire for your private, corporate or entertainment events. 

Perfectly placed in the heart of Belfast city centre, we are accessible from all main transport networks and close to many of the city's attractions. 

Grand Hall

The Grand hall seats up to 1000 visitors, or up to 1749 for standing concerts with the ground floor seating removed.

The Grand hall is designed with acoustics in mind, giving the perfect platform to deliver keynote speeches or acoustic performances. And the beautiful Mulholland Organ provides an enviable backdrop to any event.

You can hire lighting and sound packages from us and we can tailor our equipment to suit your needs.
