“Same old, same old.”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

What looks like a great venue doesn't really stack up. If you actually want to tour the castle itself it falls short of other similar venues in Ireland

“Brilliant Location”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Belfast Castle is located in Cavehill Country Park, a hillside wooded area on the North side of Belfast. It has brilliant views over the city and Belfast Lough, where you can watch the ships sailing to and from England and Scotland out of Belfast Harbour.
I have vistited the Castle on many occasions, often to attend wedding receptions, for which it is famous, and the building never fails to impress. The standard of food supplied is very satisfactory and the staff are always very efficient and pleasant. The interior decor, including many old wood-carved panels created for the Chichester family who built it, make the Castle a worthy visit for any occasion, if only to take in the brilliant view. Highly recommended.
