About Culloden Estate and Spa
Culloden Estate and Spa is set amid classical gardens on the wooded slopes of Northern Ireland's Holywood hills. The hotel, built in 1876, initially served as the estate of a wealthy member of the British Parliament. After decades as the official residence of the County Down bishopric, the property was opened to the public as a hotel in the 1960s, though it maintained its Scottish Baronial facade and 19th-century interiors. Surrounded by protected parkland, guest rooms and executive suites afford stunning views of the churning waters of Belfast Lough, Belfast's gateway to the Irish Sea.
Extensively renovated in 2005, the 15,000-square-foot (1,340 square meters) Spa at Culloden offers a range of luxury treatments using ESPA's world-famous products and techniques. Locally inspired signature treatments, a comprehensively equipped fitness suite, and a deck pool are designed to answer the requirements of the most discerning spa travelers. In addition, the hotel is situated adjacent to the famed Royal Belfast Golf Club, which was originally founded in 1881. Guests can enjoy close proximity to Belfast (the city center is just five miles away) as well as authentic Irish countryside amenities that include daily afternoon tea and a bistro pub.
