Signage not that great and was not sure if on the right track, took a shortcut to "the caves" and missed the "Devil's Punchbowl". Again no obvious signs to McArts Fort from the caves. Nothing left of the ring fort but the views are great. If... More

If you've got the stamina for a long hike, Cave Hill Country Park offers extraordinary views from the heights of Cave hill. Belfast Lough looks phenomenal from the quiet of the hill. There are plenty of accessible amenities if you feel inclined. I went for the simplicity, the peace and the wild fresh air up on high. Stunning.

We walked to the top of the cave hill from the Belfast Castle car park. If your planning to do it then I recommend going early as parking is a bit of a nightmare. We followed the green route to the summit which was enjoyable and not too steep. It took us about 2hrs to complete the route back to... More

There's a cave on a hill. You walk up the hill. Look in the cave. That's pretty much it. Top view of Belfast though, Belfast is a lot nicer when you are looking at it from far away.

You could get thoroughly lost up here and enjoy it. It's a good old fashioned trek through some lovely woodland, good place for dogs and curious children. Treat yourself to a cake and a bun when you get down.

Would walk our dogs up here quite often, it is very very hilly but if you make it to the top the views over Belfast are amazing! Great on a summer day to bring a wee picnic.
