Very interesting but make sure you have sturdy shoes as it's quite hilly at times. Belfast Castle is a lovely building and the gardens are stunning

It’s easier on the lower path, it is a proper path and there are places to rest and leads up to the castle itself - I would test it first though as you know your mum better than me!
