Culloden Estate and Spa is an impressive Gothic mansion perched within the rolling Holywood Hills of Northern Ireland. Its Scottish stone façade hints at the majestic air and five-star hospitality within. All 105 rooms and suites are the definition of relaxed and intentional luxury with impressive views over the hotel gardens and Belfast Lough. Bright, spacious, and individually decorated in traditional or contemporary tones, each is outfitted with sitting areas, massive beds, and substantial en-suite marble bathrooms with luxury ESPA bath amenities. For the discerning modern traveler, the Junior and State Suites offer vibrant bursts of color and additional space for both relaxation and work, while the single Palace Suite provides the final word in luxury. The region’s finest apartment, the Palace Suite includes plenteous space for entertaining, as well as a complimentary bar with decanted Irish Whiskey and Irish Scotch and breathtaking views over the County Antrim coastline.

The meals at Culloden Estate and Spa are the highlight of any stay. Propelled by a belief in Food Provence, Head Chef Paul McKnight loves to showcase creative spins on Irish classics while utilizing the finest seasonal produce. Superb and generously portioned, modern Irish cuisine can be enjoyed within the Gothic grandeur of Mitre Restaurant or within the grounds at The Cultra Inn, one of County Down’s coziest restaurants. For decadent moments fireside, visit the drawing room for traditional Afternoon Tea or the newly minted Crozier Lounge for a unique spin on Afternoon Tea utilizing a range of fabulous Hendrick’s gin.

Beyond its lovely estate, Culloden is also renowned for its spa sanctuary, where ESPA treatments fuse ancient rituals with modern holistic remedies. Guests also receive complimentary access to the Health Spa’s indulgent swimming pool, Jacuzzi, marble steam room, and fitness center. For those craving time outdoors, there are endless walking paths through the estate’s stunning manicured gardens as well as along the coast. Culloden Estate and Spa is perfectly accessible to Belfast and the surrounding area, where the famous Titanic Building, Peace Wall, and award-winning museums await exploration.
