Belfast Castle

Places to See | Belfast, Northern Ireland



Belfast Castle is set on the slopes of the Belfast Hills, Northern Ireland in a prominent position 400 feet above sea level. Its location provides unobstructed views of the city of Belfast and Belfast Lough.

In 1862, the third Marquis of Donegall, a descendant of the Chichester family, decided to build a new castle within his deer park, situated on the side of Cave Hill in what is now north Belfast. Designs for the new building were completed by architect John Lanyon and reflected the popular Scottish baronial style.

The estate is a great place to visit in Belfast as it contains both parkland and mature mixed woodland and offers superb views of the city from a variety of vantage points.
