The Obel Tower is the tallest building in Belfast and the whole of Ireland. Built on the banks of the Lagan, it is 85 metres high, and cost over £60 million to build! Unmissable, it overlooks the city of Belfast on Donegall Quay.
The Obel Tower was built at the beginning of 2000. With a capacity of 233 apartments, an underground car park and ultra-modern glass facades, the tower is mainly occupied by the law firm Allen & Overy.
Equipped with cafes, the place is ultra modern, and symbolizes a real renewal for the economic identity of the city. Let’s be frank: it’s not the most beautiful building in the city… (We even find it quite ugly). But the building is still ultra known within the country!
Certainly, the place is far from being hyper touristic, and you won’t be able to visit the tower. Nevertheless, you will see it without any trouble while walking along the banks and docks of the Lagan!
