There are two paths to the top of Cave Hill. We took the long one but when you get to the top it is worth it. The views are beautiful of Belfast and the harbour.

Have visited Cave Hill Country Park quite a few times and always enjoy the walk, scenery, views, etc. Great place to go if visiting Belfast as dont think you will get a better view / vantage point over the lough and ship yard. Great for kids to explore the forest and caves with plenty of steep climbs to wear them... More

We took the whole family of all ages up to the top. The hike was not difficult, but the view was still very rewarding! There were parts at the top too dangerous for the little kids, but us adults took turns looking over the edge while someone else played with the kids further in.

This park has it all for the young children right up 12 years olds I'm an adult and enjoyed the playpark You have to pay a small fee to enter, It's safe for the children they can't just run out all closed in Def worth for for the day and bringing a picnic

love the views of the Cavehill and its proximity to my home.Also fantastic views over the city and lough and can see when big cruise ships are in. The grounds are always well maintained and its groundsmen's pride in their work is evident. Must continue to enforce rules re dogs being kept on leash and enforce fines on those owners... More

A lovely escape from the city with a huge variety of flora and fauna. It's very well maintained and the Belfast Castle has great catering facilities. There are beautiful walks to suit a variety of fitness levels. The view from the top, Napoleon's Nose, is stunning and well worth the effort! This country park is approximately 2.5 miles from the...
