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.

Hillsborough Castle & Gardens + Guided Tour
The house tour was excellent but the grounds have yet to be completed and there was a lot of dust and pathways were not finished. The gates are not yet visible and parts of the gardens were fenced off. I would prefer to visit when everything is ready.

A nice way to spend an hour learning about the castles' former residents and the times in which they lived. Unfortunately it was a rainy day so I didn't explore the gardens. Another time perhaps.
