If you are lucky enough to catch a sunny day in Belfast, the castle is a lovely spot to walk around enjoying the views or relaxing on the grass with a picnic. Inside the castle you can find a restuarant which is also quite nice!

We got married at Belfast Castle in August 2015 and the day was perfect from start to finish. We chose the castle because of the lovely views, beautiful architecture and the wonderful welcome we had from the staff there. We didn't want a hotel wedding and Belfast castle ticked all our boxes. On the run up to the wedding, the... More

Visited here last week on brief visit home. Held our wedding reception here a few years back and decided to pop back. Beautiful grounds, fantastic view over the city, and a great cup of tea on a cold morning!

The venue provides perfect facilities for catering to any size of wedding and also sets a great backdrop for photographs. When the time came to change around the room for the evening... More

We actually visited in 2014, this is an impressive castle that is worth a visit. It is along the red bus route so easy to access.

So pretty at night all lit up. My great granny was a cook here when the castle was occupied it so I feel... More

This is a place best visited when the weather is fine. There are great views over all of Belfast and the lough, with Holywood and Bangor on the far side. The castle grounds are beautifully maintained and the garden is meticulously manicured. See how many cats you can find in the architecture around the garden!

Lovely grounds and views. Restaurant definitely worth a visit. Beautiful views of Cave Hill and Belfast. Has been modernized to an extent, but definitely worth a visit.

it was one of the nicest places to see just outside Belfast, love the gardens and whole building itself, but is not much to see inside as it is just for private functions
