“Beautiful and free”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Beautiful well kept castle and grounds that you are free to wonder round. \there is an information centre on the top floor which will be of interest to chidren and adults alike, with not only explanations of the surrounding flora and fauna but a short history of the castle. Delightful coffee shop and restaurant in the original cellars

“Beautiful Views, Grounds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

The grounds of the Belfast Castle are beautiful. The drive in to the castle is delightful making you anticipate your first view of the castle. Loved that you could just move through the grounds and castle at your leisure. We ate downstairs and the food and service were wonderful. The entree was served to you individually but the sides were servied family style to the table. There was a lot of food and it was delicious. Will definitely return the next time we visit.

“Great location ,shame about food.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

As many other reviewers have said,Belfast Castle is a great venue for a wedding reception with stunning views and beautifully restored period rooms.Unfortunately the Catering is very poor. The Christmas dinner we were served was bland ,tasteless and of the cheapest quality( I recently had a cheap canteen dinner that was far superior ) . Please also beware if you have any food allergies they will be totally ignored.
