Belfast Castle

Attractions

This Castle is a must see! Discover this incredible Kingdom within one of the most picture perfect areas of North Belfast. Offering some of the most beautiful panoramic views within the country, it is surrounded by a magical woodland and parkland. Set in an idyllic location, be at one with nature and discover some unique bird species, you can also expect to encounter some incredible wildlife. It is not uncommon for visitors to come across long-eared owls or an extremely rare plant, such as the "town hall clock'. For a little more fun, the Cave Hill Adventurous Playground is where you need to go. Whether you want to walk through some beautiful landscaped gardens or discover the beauty of a Millenium herb garden, this location is full of surprises. Within the castle, you can also find some refreshments served daily.

Review

Northern Ireland has now turned a vital corner in its history and tourists are flocking here from all over the world to see its jewels that were for many years, completely off the tourism radar. I used to be a huge fan of North Wales but now Northern Ireland holds a special place in my heart also. Belfast Castle is one of those once hidden jewels, but now uncovered, shines brighter than it ever did before. Nestled on the slopes of the Cavehill Country Park this castle is steeped in Northern Ireland's history and very much worth a visit. Thanks to Belfast City Council this castle over a ten year period has had a 2 million pound refurbishment which once visited, is clear to see. Another house certainly worth a visit is Malone House which is also looked after and maintained by Belfast City Council. Just two more reasons to visit Belfast!
