Belfast Castle is one of the city’s hidden gems. Situated off the Antrim Road, it may not be the most central of Belfast attractions, but it’s well worth the visit.
Not only can you have a leisurely dander around the castle gardens, but there are plenty of walks in the nearby Cave Hill Country Park, including an adventure playground for the children.
