My wife and I went to see the Castle above Belfast early in the morning before the City traffic became too heavy. The weather was just perfect for this visit giving us the chance to explore the beautifully maintained little garden of the Castle. There were many interesting mosaics showing a previous owners love of cats. There was a box... More

Spent the day at Belfast's Belfast Castle and Cave Hill Park. Fun for the family. Historical castle with a nice gift shop. The restaurant and bar offer up a nice selection of food and drink. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals. The bakery items were awesome. Scones were served with butter, preserves and cream. The grounds around the castle... More

A must see if visiting Belfast, although not in the city centre it is just a few miles away but well worth seeing, It has a nice place to eat and a camera is a must. Try and find the "Cats"?

Charming castle, it's free entry and it is a medium walk on a small hill to reach it with lovely views on the sea. The gardens are lovely and the external view very fairy-tale style. Not many rooms are open to the public (quite a few were used for weddings and private meetings) but worth a visit anyway.

Belfast Castle is set overlooking the City of Belfast. It is set in a beautiful location with pretty gardens and a stunning views over Belfast City and Belfast Lough. It is also a gateway to the Cavehill Country Park.It has a café, bar and restaurant and is also a great venue for weddings. Well worth a visit.

What super views across Belfast. The Garden was at its best in the sunshine. The room was beautifully decorated and again the views from our table were lovely. I was not able to eat the nibbles with the pre breakfast drinks as my intolerances not catered for. A shame as they looked lovely & tasty. The meal was lovely with... More

Although the gardens are beautiful , the castle exterior is fairytale and the walks around the castle are a must. The castle itself was a letdown as only restricted to viewing a few rooms. I love investigating inside castles but nearly every room is off limits. This is geared up for pushing wedding sales. So was littered with pamphlets advertising.... More
