    Fantastic exhibitions and really interesting art!! Incredibly informative and friendly staff. Best value for money cup of tea at the Cafe ☕. Lovely few hours spent and such a beautiful building.

    Went to see The 4 Worst Things I’ve ever Done and it was superb. Excellent writing and wonderfully acted. Performance was sold out and the audience was engaged throughout and the standing ovation was well deserved. A great night out. Well done to The Mac for giving productions like this the opportunity to be seen by local audiences.

    The MAC is a great place to take a break when you're in the city centre. It has a cafe which serves brunch/lunch or snacks. It is also a good option for a day trip when the art galleries are open or for a theatre performance. The building is large and airy, and you can choose to sit in booths, or more open cafe tables dotted around the first two floors. The cafe has a kids menu and an adult menu, and they offer a selection of traybakes and snack at the counter. You queue up to order at the counter, and then the staff bring your order to your table. The toilets are clean and pleasant, and the building has lift access and is accessible for wheelchairs.

    We went to see Les Misérables School Edition and it was fabulous I think the youngest was about 8 years old but don’t let that put you off as it was so very professional done, honestly it was great I’d go back and watch it again, the boys and girls have great voices. The theatre staff were very helpful at pointing things outs out to us, the show was 3 hrs long and if you have problems sitting for that length of time there’s a place at the back we’re you can stand to stretch or just move your legs, which I found very helpful. Definitely on my list now for what’s on in Belfast if I’m looking somewhere to go.

    I have been to The MAC on an almost weekly basis for the last few years. I've seen shows, exhibitions, been to kids workshops and performances here. I come in for coffee with friends, use the cafe to get some work done, some times pop in to the kids area so they can read a few books or do a little bit of drawing. This place is such a important part of Belfast's arts. It is a well run comfortable exciting place to visit either once or on a regular basis. The staff are always polite, helpful and knowledgeable.
