Whether you're visiting with friends or spending time with family, Malone House makes the ideal base for a great day out.
Barnett Demesne, the parkland which Malone House is situated in, was once a private estate but opened to the public in 1951. Today, the award-winning park retains much of the character of the original estate and is home to the Mountain Bike Trails and Jump Park.
Barnett Demesne is also popular with walkers and joggers due to its proximity to the River Lagan, Shaw's Bridge and nearby Clement Wilson Park. The park also includes eco-trails, orienteering routes and a children's playground.
