Standing high on the slopes of the Holywood Hills, overlooking Belfast Lough and the County Antrim Coastline, is the magnificent Culloden Estate and Spa, the most prestigious luxury five star hotel in Northern Ireland. Originally built as an official Palace for the Bishops of Down, the Culloden stands in 12 acres of beautiful secluded gardens and woodland. Palatial surroundings, exquisite decor, fine antiques and exceptional service combine to give the Culloden Estate and Spa a unique air of elegance.
A recent renovation programme has ensured that the Culloden Estate and Spa remains one of the top hotels in Ireland. Following the impressive bedroom, spa and restaurant refurbishments the Culloden continues to attract guests from around the world and pick up prestigious accolades, most recently being named Luxury Hotel of the Year at this year’s Irish Hotel Awards and highly commended at the first ever Georgina Campbell Breakfast Awards in the Best 5-Star Hotel category.
With all its tranquil opulence you could be forgiven for thinking the Culloden is a rural retreat, however this beautiful property has the added advantage of being just 10 minutes from Belfast City centre and is conveniently located to many of Northern Ireland’s major visitor attractions. Guests at the hotel can also enjoy an extensive range of dining and socialising options. A sumptuous Afternoon tea in the Drawing Room, Fine Dining in the Mitre Restaurant or relax by the fire in the cosy Cultra Inn.

Part of the Hastings Group, which also boasts the newly opened Grand Central in Belfast, the infamous Europa and stunning Slieve Donard at Royal County Down, the Culloden is the flag ship in this impressive portfolio of properties. If its service, scenery and a 5* experience personified on Belfast’s doorstep, then ensure to speak with Eoin for any queries you may have with the hotel.
