In Northern Ireland - city house close to bus and city centre.

Belfast is a bustling vibrant city where you can visit the famous Titanic visitor attraction and many other places of interest. In 2016, National Geographic praised Belfast’s vibrant food-scene, picking out Northern Ireland in its top ten culinary destinations!

In fact, Northern Ireland’s best kept secret is the fabulous food which you will find in the countless independent restaurants and cafés, serving many local products. From the house you can walk to an urban village area called Ballyhackamore where there are fantastic restaurants, many with great early bird deals.

Our house is within walking distance of all the facilities you will need - shops, cafes etc. It is also very close to the rapid bus link into Belfast City Centre (Glider - goes every ten minutes during the day). It is possible to have a holiday from our home without a car, and if that is your plan, we can leave information on timetables and places to visit.

We are keen walkers and can send advice on where to drive for numerous walking trails throughout Northern Ireland. There are short and long walks on mountain tracks, nature reserves, forests and beaches. Local forest parks have exciting mountain bike paths and specialist bikes for hire.

Our house is a townhouse with three floors.
