  • I love Knockagh, been coming here since a child. What's not to like: stunning views, occasional bracing wind, peaceful, good for radio enthusiasts, get stunning pictures, dog loves to run around, beau...  more »
  • A bit off the beaten track but well worth the drive on the back roads for the view over Belfast Lough to North Down. 
  • Excellent views of Belfast from here. lovely monument. poppy wreaths laid here for the fallen which is very touching. Wrap up warm when visiting as it is freezing but worth a visit

  • 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.
