Attractions near the Radisson Blu
St Malachy’s Church
The unique interiors of the castle-esque St Malachy’s Church, one of Belfast’s oldest Roman Catholic Churches, are mesmerising. Renowned for its fairy-tale-esque decor, the beautiful Tudor Revival church has pretty blue mosaic flooring and marble features.
The drawcard is its enchanting vaulted ceiling; a copy of the Henry VII chapel in Westminster Abbey with plasterwork so detailed it is often compared to a wedding cake. St Malachy’s is located close to Belfast City Hall, just a short 10-minute walk from the hotel.
Cave Hill and the castle
High above sea level, overlooking Belfast Lough and the city, sits Cave Hill, home of Belfast Castle. You can head to the castle’s basement to browse the Cave Hill Visitor Centre and learn all about the natural, archaeological and historical features of the area.
Wander around the castle grounds and admire the manicured gardens and views over Belfast, before heading off to discover other Cave Hill attractions. Look for Napoleon’s Nose, said to be the inspiration for Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, and hike up to some of the lower caves dug into the hillside.
