Hillsborough Castle

This late Georgian mansion was built in the 1770s by Wills Hill, the first Marquess of Downshire. It's now the official Northern Ireland residence of the British Royal Family. Hillsborough Castle is close to Belfast and makes for a fun family day trip out of the city.

A great visit to the castle and a wonderful informative tour guide named Elizabeth.
Wish I could have seen more of the castle as only a number of rooms open to the public

On a lovely Autumn day with the sun shining the gardens looked stunning
The House is marvellous and congrats to those who renovated this magnificent residence. The tour guide was very illuminating and it is definitely on a par with any National Trust properties we have visited

Very interesting tour. Our guide Chloe was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions perfectly. Really enjoyed the visit to the Castle though more like a large home used by the Royal family and government.
