BELFAST CASTLE & CAVE HILL
Okay, I’ll be real here! Belfast Castle and Cave Hill. What you’re here for is the incredible views and walk up to the caves, but don’t get too excited about the Castle! You can walk around the castle but it’s now just been turned into an event space and lacks any type of history, so bring your walking boots and get up those hills!
Walking shoes - Water Bottle - Jumper (as it can get cold) - Snacks (because a walk isn’t a walk without snacks!)
We didn’t pack correctly, I was wearing some Adidas sock shoes... and Rachel was wearing converse! So, because of that we could t go too high up because the ground was wet, so remember to pack your walking shoes and go see the things I didn’t!
The hills have three easy to follow routes. The small route is half an hour long and is around the Castle gardens, and the big two hour walk is up near the caves. I’d recommend this route for city and harbour views like this.
So, even thought the Castle doesn’t offer a lot, the walls do, and the walls are definitely something you should do if you have a 3+ day stay in Belfast, or if you just love the outdoors!
