Vacation - Northern Ireland
Escape to a little luxury overlooking Belfast Lough
Standing high on the wooded slopes of the Holywood hills, overlooking Belfast Lough and the County Antrim coastline, is the magnificent Culloden Estate and Spa, Northern Ireland’s most prestigious hotel. Originally built as an official palace for the Bishops of Down, the Culloden stands in 12 acres of beautiful secluded gardens and woodland and is only five miles from Belfast City Centre. Palatial surroundings, fine antiques and the highest levels of personal service combine to give the Culloden a unique air of elegance.
As befits Northern Ireland’s leading 5 Star hotel, each of the 105 guest bedrooms is exquisitely decorated and tastefully furnished. Many have stunning views over the Estate and Belfast Lough, and the County Antrim coastline especially the magnificent Palace Suite, one of Ireland’s finest bedroom suites.
History and Adventure on your doorstep.
With all its tranquil opulence you could be forgiven for thinking the Culloden is a rural retreat. It has the added advantage of being just minutes from
Belfast’s bustling City centre. Minutes too from the endless beaches, lush woodlands, championship golf courses, horse riding and sailing that County
Down has to offer. The Culloden is also convenient to many of Northern Ireland’s major visitor attractions including Titanic Belfast,The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Holywood town, Mount Stewart and the County Down Coastline.
