On a clear day, as we had, you can see for miles. This gives you a complete view over Belfast and beyond. Good for pointing out various landmarks.

You have to go here! birdseye view of Belfast. The walk is flat. You park in the national trust carpark opposite the starting point. Suitable for kids. The views of the city in my eyes are thee best.

Smashing place to visit especially on a good day. Views of Belfast are breathtaking. Only dissapointment the Cafe that was there was closed for no reason.
