Beautiful grounds. Lots of walking. Flowers are beautiful. Very friendly and easy to find. Went in Sept. Make sure you bring a coat. A little chilly

“Great views of Belfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

Follow the signs for Belfast castle. You could walk from the city centre in about 30mins but you will drive or taxi in about 10mins. The walk starts just past a small car park and before the entrance to the castle. I met people of all ages and in everything from ordinary clothes and footwear to those with walking gear and rucksacks. In reality you are better wearing supportive shoes or boots as most of the walk is on gravel tracks with short stretches on well beaten rough paths. You could get away with shorts and tee shirts on a good day but remember you reach about 1200ft on a coastal hill and the temperature and weather can on does change quickly. There are also some nettles and brambles in the long grass on the sides of the pathways but not a big issue with minimal care. Anyone with a reasonable level of fitness can do this walk which I would grade as moderate . Takes about 1hour 40mins taking time to stop and admire the views which are simply spectacular - on a clear day you can easily see the Glens of Antrim, Carrickfergus, Scotland, Scrabo Tower, The Mourne mountains and with every part of Belfast visible in the foreground it is amazing and well worth the effort required by the walk. So if you are on a cruise ship, visiting for the day or have more time to spend take a dander up this hill, burn off some energy and then finish in the castle for afternoon tea, what a good day out.

“my head in the clouds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

You can not visit Belfast,without visiting the Cave Hill Country Park,you can easily spend a couple of hours wandering the numerous paths,that stretch for miles,admiring the floral colours and maybe catch a glimpse of the local wildlife,if you are lucky,and after you weary walk,why not call into Belfast Castle and rest your weary feet,over a drink or two,or more.

“Great hike, can be challenging”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Views are fantastic - real "Game of Thrones" type scenery, it's no surprise filming takes place nearby.
