Hey everyone! My name is Mack Jones and I am excited to tell you about this wonderful Tuesday in Ireland. Today, we went out and got to tour the beautiful Belfast Castle. The castle standing today was built in in 1862, however there were two before it that burned down. The castle was passed down through the Chichester, Donegall, and Shaftesbury families over time and then in 1934 the castle and the surrounding estate was presented to the city of Belfast.
I had a great time today touring the castle, it has an amazing exterior staircase that is a great place to take photos. You can see all of Belfast from the top. The inside is all refurbished now for weddings and it even has a restaurant. However, the top floor has some rooms that show the history of the castle, and what a room in the castle would have looked like back then. Overall, it was a great experience and going to see the Belfast Castle should be on everyone who is traveling to Irelands to do list.
