Extremely limited for vegetarians and vegans. No diary alternatives for tea/coffee. A shame because it is such a beautiful location and I would be keen to return if not for this.

Wonderful view from the grounds of this castle. Overlooking Belfast Lough. Try to find all the cats around the landscape gardens, good fun even for us oldies. Castle itself is a magnificent building and the bar/Cafe overpriced.

the castle and grounds are free but the castle is limited to bar and restaurant. There is a small shop with unusual gifts. The view from top is amazing
