About

Cave Hill Country Park gets its name from five caves, which could be early iron mines, located on the side of the main Belfast cliffs.

The park itself contains a wealth of natural and historical features including Cave Hill, one of the most visible landmarks in Belfast, and Belfast Castle.

There are several archaeological sites in Cave Hill Country Park including the remains of a stone cairn, cashel and crannog. The most spectacular is McArts Fort, an ancient ráth or fort which stands almost 368 metres (about 1,200 feet) above sea level.
