About this listing
Find your home away from home in Belfast's best neighbourhood which is within walking distance of Queens University, yet far away enough for you to have peace and quiet - not surrounded by students. You'll have the perfect base to explore Belfast and Northern Ireland in a charming Victorian house where old-fashioned features mix with modern comfort and luxury.
The house is also certified with the Northern Irish Tourist Board, meeting strict statutory requirements as a provider in NI.
Set over three floors, the house is spacious, bright, inviting, carefully decorated throughout and offers plenty of reading material (including maps and guides) clean white linens, towels and toiletries. You'll have free access to the dining room, kitchen and covered garden on the ground floor. Upstairs, you'll find the modern bathroom and the bedrooms.
The bedroom has a comfy single bed, and is bright, welcoming and cosy. The room has a desk, central heating, electric blankets, internet access/wifi, coffee & tea making provisions, slippers and housecoat.
The house is located on a very quiet residential street in the heart of Belfast's Ormeau Road - a safe, family-friendly and diverse area where you can find lots of young professional people, great little restaurants and cafes, contemporary bars and traditional pubs. Only 15 min walk into the very centre of the city and 10min walk to nearby Ormeau Park/QUB. Virtually outside the door is the city centre bus stop which will also take you to take to the Botanic Gardens/ Queen's University/Ulster Museum in 10 minutes.
Guests who book to stay for more than 4 days may use the kitchen to prepare meals and will be provided with kitchen storage space.
I'm a Belfast native and have lived abroad and travelled the globe. I love welcoming people to the city and to my home and look forward to making your trip special. I have worked in Universities, Colleges, City Councils, Private, Voluntary and Community Sectors and have a life time of Equality/Management/Personal Development/Community Relations Training and community development involvement. I am happy to provide city tours outlining the history of the Conflict, and visits to explore the cultural and artistic legacy of the City.
Please inquire about optional extra rooms in the house (I have 4 bedrooms) as the Airbnb reservation system shows bookings for only one room.
Smoking outside only - there's a covered garden space with seating.
Respect is an explicit and implicit 'value' of the house and is demonstrated in how people are treated and behave. Principles of equality, diversity and the promotion of 'Good Relations' are core values.
There are no spare computers/mobile phones/televisions in the house so please bring your own laptop etc to access information etc.
Although this is a B&B, I am happy to provide additional services at a cost which reflects only the real cost (e.g. use of washing machine etc.) Guests may not use the washing machine without permission. There is no clothes dryer and clothes are dried in the yard which is covered. Wet clothes may not be hung up to dry inside the house. Wet outdoor garments - shoes/boots/coats/umbrellas need to be placed in the yard. Slippers are provided in the hallway for guests and outdoor shoes should not be worn in the house please.
The dining room/kitchen area is available only for breakfast and is closed at 11a.m. For guests who are staying more than 3 nights, arrangements may be made to use the kitchen and guests must leave the kitchen as they find it including washing and putting their dishes away, cleaning the stove and any spillages on the floor. Coffee and tea making facilities are available in each room and no dishes should leave the dining/kitchen area. Meals may not be eaten in bedrooms.
The house is not set up to accommodate young children.
The 'living room' which is not pictured on the website is strictly private.
