Clifton House, Belfast

Have you ever wondered what lies behind the façade of Clifton House?  This imposing Georgian building has seen its fair share of war, famine and plague, but few know the real story.

In visiting the House you’ll see and hear the personal stories of those who petitioned the Society both inside and outside the confines of Poor House.  Their stories, at times difficult, at times uplifting continue beyond the Poor House through employment, emigration and even in death with many buried in the Society’s Clifton Street Graveyard.

The development of Belfast is fundamentally linked to the development of the Belfast Charitable Society.  The Society became responsible for services such as water supply, medical provisions, street lighting and philanthropy within the town.  All of this was over 150 years before Belfast City Hall was even built!

Tours are held every Friday at 3.00pm and are available at other times for private bookings.  To book a tour, please contact us 028 90997022 or email [email protected]
