My Wife and I would occasionally walk in the country park. The walk itself is quite challenging however the views of Belfast and Belfast Lough once you get to the top of Cave Hill are breath-taking. Would recommend taking good walking shoes and reasonably warm clothes as it can be very windy at the top!

I am really lucky as a I live close to the Cave Hill Country Park and walk through it most days. It is a gorgeous place to walk in any weather, the walk through the Cave Hill or around the castle grounds never fails to disappoint with views over Belfast. There are benches dotted around the car park and avenue... More

This was a great day hike in Belfast. We took a public bus to the park entrance and then hiked up the hill and back. In took several hours but the view was worth the time. We then had a great lunch at the castle before taking the bus back to the city center. Advice: bring water--it's a challenging hike... More

Lovely area for a few hours away from the city with lovely gardens, park and views. Titanic hop on/off bus takes you there.

I've spent many years exploring Cave Hill since early childhood & then with my own children & it never ceases to amaze me. From simply enjoying walking around the various trails to climbing right up on to "Napoleon's Nose" & enjoying the spectacular views, exploring the caves, drinking the beautiful fresh, natural spring water when you know where to look....

There are a couple of routes to get to the top of Cave Hill from either Belfast castle or Belfast Zoo car park. To get to the top it's a decent hike whichever route you take. You can stop below the top, around the cave. If you go right to the top the view is obviously better and on a... More

Great place to spend time. If it's windy it can be a bit nasty, especially if combined with rain. It's a fairly tough walk up but any age can do it. So many different routes to follow. Stunning in winter snow if up there before all the footprints. Just watch out for mountain bikers who think they own it. Take... More

Been up here a few times, in both Winter and Summer. So long as its a clear day, its breathtaking and worth the walk. Takes around an hour and a half or so for the longest trail. Definitely worth it- one of my fave things. Tip- Dont forget to bring a bottle of water with you and wear good shoes.

Worth climbing to the top of Cave Hill on a clear sunny day to see the view over N Ireland and away over to Scotland. An easy walk that takes a couple of hours. Then down to the Castle for afternoon tea.
