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.

The countryside is beautiful and worth taking time to visit if you have time and transport. The views around every corner are spectacular and need to be seen to appreciate as photos just don't do it justice.

Driving along the Monagh By Pass' I missed the turnoff for the Upper Springfield Road. I did a U turn in an empty side road (off the Whiterock Road). Approaching from the other direction I clearly saw the sign for Divis and Black Mountain. Divis Road is the 2nd turning on the right from the Upper Springfield Road. The National... More

We shell first say that we have not been at the top of the top of this mountain, but through a bus tour has been coming up a bit on the mountain on one side and enjoy the stunning views of the city. The mountain is somewhat reminiscent of Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa; In both cases, you... More

The National Trust have worked wonders laying trails across the mountain which can be walked at any time if the year as they are tarmac. Belfast isn't a particularly pretty city from above but the panoramic views are good. The car park from which all trails begin is only accessible by car unfortunately. In summer months there is a cafe... More

The ridge walk provides stunning views of Belfast and the surrounding countryside. Make sure to bring sturdy shoes and wrap up as even on sunny days it can be quite windy up there, well worth a visit in you're nearby.

Arrived at 3pm Sunday 3rd July at the start of the school holidays to be told that the cafe and the only toilet facilities would be closed in a few minutes! What's that all about. Who closes up mid afternoon when there are many walkers etc in the area. Crazy and disappointing. However having completed 3 of the 4 marked... More
