The ridge walk provides stunning views of Belfast and the surrounding countryside. Make sure to bring sturdy shoes and wrap up as even on sunny days it can be quite windy up there, well worth a visit in you're nearby.

Arrived at 3pm Sunday 3rd July at the start of the school holidays to be told that the cafe and the only toilet facilities would be closed in a few minutes! What's that all about. Who closes up mid afternoon when there are many walkers etc in the area. Crazy and disappointing. However having completed 3 of the 4 marked... More

First time walking on Divis. Our group consisted of adults and children, we were able to walk at our own pace in safety. Good path for most of walk to summit with great views. Pity there is no seating at top to rest your legs and enjoy the views for another while. The cafe is closed which was a shame... More

The views are unreal, stunning. It allows you to look into Belfast and see the potential that this awesome city has. On a Clear day, you will struggle to beat it. The wildlife and nature around you reminds you of how small we all are in this little world.

I love coming here, brilliant walks and on a clear sunny day I could sit and watch the views all day, great parking and the little cafe is not too bad either

I have been many times with different age groups and now the pathways are better and easier. Parking can get a bit difficult on popular days (weekends, sunny days) but you can park on the road if the car park is busy. Picnic tables there. Small coffee shop there. You need to go to the top then veer off to... More
