Enjoy panoramic views of Belfast by climbing up the beautiful cave hill. As a long lost custom, the locals visited the hill on Easter Mondays or Tuesdays and rolled Easter eggs down the hill to see which of them made it to the bottom. You could plan a picnic on the hill as well. The hill derived its name from the fact that is possesses caves on either sides along with historical and archeological features and natural wealth. You’d never get a view of the city like how you see it from the top of the hill anywhere else in Belfast.
