Stormont Estate

Stormont Castle was built in 1858 in baronial style, complete with turrets, battlements and conical caps. Its flamboyant exterior is said to have inspired that of Scotland’s Balmoral Castle. After surviving demolition plans in 1921, the Castle became the official residence of the NI Prime Minister and, in today’s devolved NI Assemby, houses the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister. The building is not accessible by the general public (except during Sept’s Heritage Open Days). Still, it’s nice to admire from behind the security barrier.
