This is a lovely walk, but can be steep at some parts but benches the whole way up. Takes about and Hour up and then about 50 mins down. Go on a good day with little to no cloud or you will see nothing!

Cave Hill is a beautiful sight to visit, the walk is amazing, we were blessed with a dry day which made it even better. Would highly recommend

Travelling up to this area is a good thing to do when visiting Belfast, the views are fantastic and the history of these caves interesting

It’s easier on the lower path, it is a proper path and there are places to rest and leads up to the castle itself - I would test it first though as you know your mum better than me!
