The magnificent Culloden Estate and Spa is one of Northern Ireland's most prestigious hotels.

Originally built as an official palace for the Bishops of Down, this stunning spot, set in 12 acres of secluded gardens, is the jewel in the crown of County Down.

Today the Culloden Estate and Spa is one of the finest and most distinguished five-star hotels in Northern Ireland.

With all its tranquil opulence you could be forgiven for thinking the Culloden is a rural retreat, however this beautiful property has the added advantage of being just 10 minutes from Belfast City Centre and is conveniently located to many of Northern Ireland's major visitor attractions.

Guests at the hotel can also enjoy an extensive range of dining and socialising options including a sumptuous afternoon tea in the Drawing Room, fine dining in Vespers Restaurant, a drink in the Lough Bar overlooking Belfast Lough or relax by the fire in the cosy Cultra Inn.

Relax and unwind in their world-class ESPA spa, Northern Ireland's sanctuary for body and mind.
