We had a lovely lunch here to celebrate a 60th Birthday with 14 members of our family. There were children as well and the staff have very thoughtfully put us in a room off the main dining room which meant the children could get up from the table (like they do) and not disturb the other diners. The food was... More

The building itself is quite nice and easily reachable with hop on/hop off bus tour through Belfast. I was surprised that there is no admission fee for this castle but realised soon that it is due to almost empty rooms. However, it's nice from outside and the park near castle looks pretty as well. A tale about 9 cats makes... More

I went there for a wedding in February and the place was very well kept and the staff were very nice. The views are great and the gardens good for taking pictures. We did not have a meal, so can't comment on that.

We visited the Castle Restaurant for Christmas lunch and at £35 for two (in reality £17.50 each) this was probably the best value of anywhere. Although there were only four or five choices for each course they catered for all tastes. I was very impressed with a Chicken Nicoise starter. Greens with sundried tomatoes and the dressing with a very... More

What a magnificent view! This castle is a must visit to Belfast. The gardens and tracks surrounding the property are outstanding. Pity about the food they serve though..the cafe looked run down and the restaurant was drab. For such a fabulous property, finesse was lacking in interior decoration as well as quality of food. Service was very friendly though and... More

Lovely café and restaurant and great views of the City. Tour buses stop here every hour and an hour is plenty to have a good look round. Make sure you visit the garden of the 9 cats.
