For one of this very best views of Belfast and surrounding countryside. However no amenities for the visitor. This could easily be a stunning visitor attraction if only the tourism and local council chiefs exercised a " little" foresight and took a real look at the opportunities Knockagh could provide to visitors and locals with thoughtful planning and investment.

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.

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, beautiful sunrises, see Scotland and the Mournes on clear day, great hill for sledding when it snows, fill your lungs with clean air, good for romantic couples and then...

A bit off the beaten track but well worth the drive on the back roads for the view over Belfast Lough to North Down.

Spectacular views all over Belfast Lough and surrounding area. Peaceful setting for this monument small car park, not suitable for larger buses but ok for minibus. Large grass area where you could have a picnic.

A small curvy road leading to the monument. Use some caution driving to it - people walking their dogs, jogging, other drivers. But once you get there you will not be disappointed. The history of what the statue stands for demands your respect. The views will make put you in awe of it. And the wind will push you around... More

What a view from this place, be sure to bring your camera and a map so you can identify all the scenic points from wonderful vantage point. Day or night the views are fantastic, the weather doesn't matter it will not take away from what you can see.

you can walk there from Carrick (quite a walk but on a asphalt road) and once you reach the top you can rest overlooking the bay.
