It’s the Weekend: Colin Glen, Belfast


Perched on the edge of the Antrim Plateau, sandwiched between Black Mountain and Collin Mountain. With many towns such as Dunmurry and Tornaroy, lies the glorious glen: a gateway to the Belfast Hills and a site of natural beauty – all close to the heart of the city.

Colin Glen is dedicated to creating and maintaining natural open spaces and offering unique, world-class visitor attractions for everyone to enjoy.

Black Bull Run at Colin Glen

As well as excellent educational opportunities, state-of-the-art sports facilities, wildlife walks with their Forest Ranger, and a challenging 9-hole golf course, you can try your hand at some heart-stopping, adrenaline-pumping activities like Sky Trek, Ireland’s first Alpine Coaster, Ireland’s first Top Tracer Driving Range or Ireland’s longest Zipline.

This area is steeped in history. It was once synonymous with the bustling linen industry. Colin River played a vital role in linen bleaching for Suffolk Linen Company and Killeen Bleach Works.

An army of volunteers transformed the area, planting 60,000 trees, designing walkways, constructing bridges, creating over 5000 metres of trails so local people, and local wildlife, could enjoy the glen.
