About

For centuries Coleraine has held a crucial place in Irish history. In the early 17th century Coleraine was key to the Plantation and a fortified town was built on this ancient site on the River Bann. James I issued Coleraine its town charter on 28 June 1613. This gave the town the right to hold markets and send representatives to Parliament. Four hundred years later in 2013, the Coleraine 400 Heritage Trail supports exploration of the historic town centre including Coleraine Town Hall.

Located in the centre of Coleraine, the Town Hall is built in warm golden sandstone and in a restrained Italiante style. In 1914, a fine window, by Campbell Brothers of Belfast, illustrating the Irish Society Schools in 1869, the Salmon Leap in 1836, the Diamond in 1815, and the Parish Church as restored in 1775, was inserted to commemorate the tercentenary of the Irish Society. A major renovation and refurbishment scheme in 1994 restored the Town Hall to its former glory and the building is now in pristine condition. More recently, a new stained glass window was inserted to commemorate Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

Today, it is the Coleraine Museum’s accredited exhibition venue, and since 2008 houses the Hugh Thomson Study Room for the work of this prestigious and influential Victorian book illustrator, born in Coleraine 1860. The main hall has a seating capacity of 350 and is equipped with sound and lighting systems of the highest standard. There is also a smaller room (capacity 65) for meetings and shows. Both rooms are available for booking. Coleraine Town Hall also supports the monthly Coleraine Specialty Market and festival events in The Diamond.

The Coleraine Visitor Information Centre is based in the Town Hall.
