Every time I am in Belfast, I visit Belfast Castle. It’s quite a long drive from the city centre (15-20min) and it’s not very easy to find, but it is worth it! Especially on the sunny day! Most of the city of Belfast and the bay are on the palm of your hand!
Built in 1870 by the Third Marquis of Donegal, this flamboyant building is situated on the outskirts of Belfast, in Cave Hill Country Park. Don’t hesitate to ask locals for the directions, they ARE friendly!
By the way, if you are there at Christmas period, enjoy an enchanted tour of the Castle.
Tickets available at Belfast Castle reception £3 per person includes tour and refreshments. Booking is essential, group bookings may be taken with a maximum of ten people per group. But there are only few dates available, so check at the reception first: 028 9077 6925.
P.S. Ask about the white cat. There are nine of them in the gardens!
