State Rooms at Hillsborough Castle

Hillsborough Castle was built in the 1700s by Wills Hill, first Marquess of Downshire; and was later remodelled in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Today, as the official residence of the Royal Family in Northern Ireland, it retains a pivotal role in cultural and political life in the country and is an inspiring events venue.

Hillsborough Castle is located a mere 20 minutes drive from Belfast with regular buses from Europa Bus Centre. The Castle can accommodate all manner of events, from small meetings to large seminars and conferences.
