Cave Hill, sometimes spelled as Cavehill, is a basaltic hill overlooking the city of Belfast, Northern Ireland. It forms part of the southeastern border of the Antrim Plateau. It is distinguished by its famous 'Napoleon's Nose', a basaltic outcrop which resembles the profile of the famous emperor Napoleon. Cave Hill spelt as Cavehill is also the name of an electoral ward in Belfast. Previously it was known as Collinward Mountain, and more historically as Ben Madigan, which is derived from the Irish Beann Mhadagáin, meaning "Madagán’s peak"—so named after a king of Ulster called Madagán who died in 856AD.
Stunning country park, with multiple paths and trails to follow.
Lots of different ways up. Great walks and amazing scenery at many points of the walks.
Relaxing walk up the hill, good exercise and perfect for a picnic when you've reached the top.
Great place for walk with amazing wiew
Beautiful walks with excellent scenic views over Belfast.
It's great for walking mountain biking plus the castle has a great bar and the food is great too.
Great place, better signage would make all the difference to those that are not familiar with the area
A great place for a hike or to escape the city centre. There are beautiful views with the city on one side and lovely green hills on the other. If you want to enter the small cave you have to climb a bit.
Traveled all over the world in my job . But still what I have on my doorstep I love . Walk it as often as possible from the zoo. Only wish is people would take the rubbish home . Love the Cavehill.
fantastic walks to view belfast from its famous old iron age fort. good paths easy moderate walking
A gorgeous park with 3 different routes each taking 15 mins, 1 hour and 2.5 hours respectively. A level of fitness is required but worth it for the gorgeous views around the 2/3 point of the 2.5 hr walk. Bring a pair of walking shoes and a small day hike bag if attempting it!
