The city of Belfast in Northern Ireland is steeped in history and the impressive Belfast Castle is a significant part of this heritage. Built in the early 19th Century to replace the original Norman fortification that once stood in the centre of the city, Belfast Castle is an opulent structure built in the grandiose Scottish Baronial style.

Unlike the original, Belfast Castle does not stand in the city centre, but on the outskirts of Belfast in the lush greenery of Cavehill Country Park. Its location on the slopes of Cavehill means visitors to this lavish Georgian retreat will not only be able to enjoy the secluded wonder of the castle, its many turrets and extensive grounds, but also unique, breathtaking views over Belfast, the lakes and stretching Northern Irish coastline beyond.

Belfast Castle’s impressive architecture attracts historians and art lovers alike. The building underwent an extensive renovation in the 1970s and now plays host to countless events, conferences and fine dining. Particularly worthy of note is Belfast Castle’s Cellar Restaurant, which is renowned in the area for its fresh, mouth-watering menus, made from the best local produce. And don’t worry – this airy and bright restaurant is not as dark as the name might suggest!

A visit to Belfast Castle is guaranteed to make an impression. Situated on the Antrim Road close to Fortwilliam Golf Club, drive up from Belfast City for afternoon tea, head to the restaurant, or if you fall in love with the place, you could even tie the knot here.
