  • Good view from the top. Bring a coat but forget the umbrella. Blows the head of you here. Still nice enough if you're passing by.  more »

  • Amazing location...the views of Belfast are incredible. A small location-no place to walk or anything like this. Bring a picnic, cup of tea and chill watching the world go by.....
  • If you want one of the best views in the whole of Northern Ireland this is a most go spot. You can see from the start Belfast Lough coming into Larne to Carrickfergus with Hollywood on the other side of the bay and into Belfast City itself. Then from Belfast City to the rolling hills and then spinning yourself around to look up at knockagh Monument itself.
  • Probably the best views of Belfast and the Lough you can get, poignant war memorial set on the hills overlooking Belfast, calm setting, a place to reflect.
  • It is what it is. Built as a World war one monument on top of a hill with good views. About 10 to 15 mins would be enough time to visit. Small country roads lead up to it.
  • The Knockagh Monument is a war memorial near Carrickfergus County Antrim, Northern Ireland. On top of Knockagh Hill, above the Greenisland with a panoramic views of the city of Belfast, Carrickfergus , Hollywood & Belfast lough.
