“Fantastic views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

It's a bit of a climb even in good weather but the end result is totally worth it. The view over Belfast is fantastic. You will have fun searching for the local landmarks from here. Take care with the kids or your dog as there is no fence and the edge could prove to be dangerous if you are not careful.

“Great Views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

I started this walk from the Belfast Castle car park and followed the green cave hill route. The route isn't overly difficult although it can get a little slippery at times without the appropriate footwear. The views the whole way up and at the top are excellent. On a clear day the views are worth the climb. A little windy at the top but you can easily sit and have a picnic. Well worth the climb! Belfast Castle is also lovely to walk around at the end of the climb.

“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2012

All the same area as the Zoo, leads to Blacks mountain, adventurous playground and Belfast Castle. Excelent area to visit, this walk up the Cave Hill is a challenge but the view when you get to the top is amazing.

“Great views..worth the climb!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2012

Although we only live about 20 miles from Cavehill we had never visited. i would suggest if you do go for a walk round Cavehill that you are reasonably fit, have good walking shoes and you have a good amount to drink to keep you hydrated. This is a great walk with great views but i would suggest you don't leave it too late in the day as there is a big possibility of getting lost. the sign posts were great on the climb up but on the descent they were non existent and we had to rely on the knowledge of people passing by to get back to the car park.
