Belfast Castle

Belfast has had a number of castles. The first Belfast Castle was built by the Normans in the late 12th century. A second castle, made of stone and timber, was later constructed by Sir Arthur Chichester, Baron of Belfast, on the same site in 1611 but then burned down almost 100 years later.

In 1862, the third Marquis of Donegall, a descendant of the Chichester family, decided to build a new castle within his deer park, situated on the side of Cave Hill in what is now north Belfast. The castle was finished in 1870.
