Van Morrison To Play Intimate Performances In Belfast’s Culloden Hotel

Belfast’s Culloden Estate and Spa has announced that blues-rock legend Van Morrison will perform two exclusive, intimate shows this Easter at the venue.

The lunch and jazz event will take place on Easter Sunday and Monday, 31 March and 1 April, respectively, at the five-star hotel, which is part of the Hastings Hotel Group.

‘Unforgettable Culinary Experience’

“Hastings Hotels has a rich history of hosting Van Morrison gigs, and we are delighted to have him back in the Culloden for these special performances,” said Matt McRoberts, head of marketing, Hastings Hotels.

“This Easter celebration promises to be a harmonious blend of music, luxury, and an unforgettable culinary experience.”

Welcome Back

Hastings Hotels have hosted several Van Morrison gigs over the years, in both the Culloden and Europa hotels, in Belfast.


Tickets are on sale on Ticketmaster, starting from £200 (~€235), to include a three-course lunch, with attendance limited to 320 people per night.

The Culloden

Belfast’s Culloden Estate and Spa stands on the slopes of the Holywood Hills, overlooking Belfast Lough and the County Antrim coastline.

It is prided on being one of the most prestigious luxury five-star hotels in Northern Ireland. Originally built as an official palace for the Bishops of Down, the Culloden stands on 12 acres of secluded gardens and woodland.

The group also owns the four-star Everglades Hotel in Derry-Londonderry and Ballygally Castle, set on the Antrim coast, at the gateway to the nine Glens of Antrim, a short drive from the Giant’s Causeway and world-famous Game of Thrones Tour.
