Belfast Castle this afternoon

A couple of hours with "the parents" was long enough for "the boys" so we dropped them off and decided to take a 5-10 minute trip down the road to Belfast Castle. No matter how many times I go there it always brings back so many childhood memories..
The present castle (there were 2 previous castles on the site) was completed in 1870 and the architecture is amazing. It sits 400 feet above sea level in the grounds of the Cavehill Country Park and has a fantastic view over Belfast Lough.
 As you can probably see there was a wedding party here so we walked quite a bit towards Napoleon's Nose and came back to take photos in the gardens when the bridal party had gone inside for their reception.

You can't miss all the references to the famous "Castle Cat"!
