Victorian grandiosity meets modern-day luxury in this Belfast hideaway
Built by William Robinson in 1876, Culloden House was once the official residence of the Lord Bishop of Down, Connor and Dromore – hence the hotel’s charming motto, ‘Built for a bishop, fit for a king’. Beautifully renovated for the modern world, the hotel effortlessly combines contemporary luxury with signature pieces from its illustrious past – pause for a moment by the stained-glass windows on the grand staircase, or admire the architect’s crest on the historical Glasslough sandstone. It was originally a two-storey villa with dressings of Scottish stone and a castellated entrance tower. An expanse of light, the bedrooms are spacious and welcoming, furnished with King Koil Cloud Beds.

With acres of luscious lawns to explore, a walk around the grounds is a must. Start your day with a full Irish breakfast at Vespers Restaurant, before taking a leisurely stroll (or bike ride) through the gardens and nearby coastal path. In the afternoon, pop into town for a spot of sightseeing – Northern Ireland’s most famous attractions are just 10 minutes away. Be sure to return to the Culloden Estate and Spa in time for afternoon tea, which the hotel elevates to an art form.
Enjoy your stay!
