I have been visiting the country park for decades now, since I was a child. It's such a beautiful place. There's the castle for tea or a nice walk round the gardens. The playground for kids is first class. Even just for a walk or a picnic on the rare sunny day we get once a decade! It's just a... More

You don't get much for free these days... and certainly Cave Hill is a tough climb but worth every bead of sweat to get to the top. One can see every county in Northern Ireland from there and the views of the city are spectacular. Allow 4 hours for a round trip to the top.

I've lived in Belfast for most of my life but hadn't taken the opportunity to visit Cave Hill until recently. Definitely worth the hike to the top although some of the signs can be misleading at times-you need to keep your wits about you!

There are various routes, most require you to be at least 1/2 fit.You can go all the way up Cave Hill and look out over Belfast, or just walk about with grass and trees, Belfast castle is nice to look at, or book for a wedding venue or etc

I decided to park/begin at the Belfast Zoo route to Cave Hill as I do not know Belfast well and found the entrance further down the Antrim Road to be less well signed and seemed to be inaccessible by car. On a higher note once I had finally got out of the car at the Zoo Car Park my mood... More

Setting off from the grounds of Belfast Castle, which in themselves are worth an explore, there are multiple routes you can take to wander around Cave Hill. All of it is uphill to start with but definitely worth the bit of effort when you emerge from the trees and can see all the way back across Belfast and along the... More

not the biggest fan of walking but managed to get up to the top grand. And my gosh was the view worth it. When doing the walks round cave hill make sure appropriate shoes are worn. Managed to get by in trainers but walking boots would have prevented me slipping in the mud on the way down.

We access this from the hightown road and it's a lovely walk to the top with spectacular views over Belfast and Belfast lough. It's a toughish walk and is steep in parts but well worth it.

We are very lucky, as this is literally on our door step. We have spent many a Sunday afternoon walking up and down cavehill. One or two negative points, too many people let their dogs run lose and not really safe for young children. On my last visit also I need notice a lot more litter lying about also, too... More

Cave Hill is a great walk. Go via the beautiful Belfast Castle and take the walk up the hill to see over the beautiful Belfast and over the lough into Bangor and Carrickfergus.
