About the tour
The Clifton Street Graveyard tour invites patrons to imagine the lives of the 14,000 people buried beneath the soil, whose stories range from grave robbery to historical figures from throughout the area's history.
By contrast, The Cavehill walking tour takes visitors over 300 meters above the city to view Belfast in all its glory. Once the sights and sounds of this beautiful and historic location have been soaked up, the tour swings over to the grand surrounds of Belfast Castle.

The Clifton Street Cemetery
Belfast Poor House:
Opening up its back garden as a graveyard to the city’s poor in 1795, the Poor House retains an air of eighteenth century mystery perfect for stepping into the other-worldly atmosphere of the cemetery. Cholera pits:
Just inches beneath the surface, thousands of souls lie after losing their life to the terrible disease in the 19th century. These graves, and many others throughout the cemetery, were subject to the notorious theft of Belfast’s body snatchers.
The Cavehill Walking Tour:
The steep cliff walls of this magnificent igneous outcrop offer a horizon of sights, including the bright lights of Belfast city and the rolling slopes of the Mourne Mountains. Famously the fortified haunt of Dark Age kings, these walls of basalt are home to many a tale of tragedy and adventure.
Built after the razing of the first incarnation, Belfast Castle affords spectacular views of opulence and tranquillity. Patrons are encouraged to explore its blossoming gardens, where the legend of nine cats still roams.
The Clifton Street Graveyard tour runs on Tuesdays and Fridays at 7pm
The Cavehill Walking Tour runs on Saturdays at 3pm
