Some opinions about the Ormeau Road;
Eilish Stocks "It's vibrant and quirky in a very Northern Ireland way. The local cafe, Graffiti, serves scrumptious food. A good mix of people: Catholic alongside Protestant, but also working class, middle class and bohemian.
Louise Bennett "It's a really close-knit community."
Terri Shields "The best thing is Ormeau Park, which includes a golf course, tennis arena, play areas and space to forget city life."
Margaret Ewins "The regeneration in the city centre is spreading down here and it's becoming like central Belfast. Apartment blocks are springing up. It's bringing in new people, and they're seeing what a beautiful place it really is."
Within a 10min walk you will be at the begining of the Lagan towpath wich takes the walker along the river and canal system through a variety of wetland, riverside meadows and mixed woodland from Belfast to Lisburn. Home to a variety of wildlife, the canal system dates back to the late 18th century and many features still give an insight into the majestic era of the lighter - the name for the boats that originally travelled on the Lagan Canal.
There's frequent buses from Ormeau Road to city centre, every 10/15min week days, Any bus that stops on the Ormeau road will take you to the city centre in 10 min.
It's a 30 min leisurely walk to the city centre, about 5 Pounds in a taxi.

I had an enjoyable short stay at Miriam home and wish I had planned to stay an extra day in Belfast. She responded quickly and replies frequently to messages. There is space to park on the street and was easy to find. Miriam is very nice and friendly and so is Chris. The room is comfy and homely.
I had a great stay at Miriam's place, though it was only for one night. Both Miriam and Chris were very welcoming at made me feel right at home. The place was clean and cozy and the bed was very comfortable. I enjoyed the location which was close to a big park and a walk along the river. Thanks for the great stay!
Clean and cosy place. Miriam and Chris are nice and helpful hosts. Location is easily accessible with good connections to the city centre. Very pleasant stay!
We had a lovely stay with Miriam and Chris! Their house has so much character, and we felt completely at home during our quick weekend in Belfast. They gave great recommendations on the most authentic Belfast pubs and sights, and even let us keep our bags in the living room all day after we had checked out, so we could explore the city before our evening flight. Thank you again for hosting us!
We hebben een goede tijd gehad in Belfast. De tip van Miriam om in een visrestaurant in het centrum te eten, was fantastisch. Het huis is makkelijk te bereiken met bus en taxi. Het was fijn om zoveel informatie over Belfast en omgeving op de kamer te vinden. We hebben heerlijk geslapen en genoten van onze privacy.
We loved our stay in Belfast! The room was great, and Chris and Miriam were fantastic. (I never actually saw Miriam in person but she communicated very well through the app.) Chris also gave us great suggestions for things to do in the area. Very accommodating and nice people. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I'm Spanish, 38 years old and have lived in Belfast for ten years, before that I have done two round the world trips. So well used to travelling!! My favorite countries are Nepal and New Zealand.
I love good food, good wine, good conversation, cooking and of course Game of Thrones!!
Chris is a born and Bred Belfast man and will be happy to explain the do's and don's and recommend off the beaten track places to visit.
He is also a musician, he loves baking, a good Ale and would like to set up a home recording studio in the near future.
We are quite knowledgeable about the city and its nightlife, bars and restaurants.
There will most definitely always be some form of musical instrument available to use in our home.
We look forward to hearing from you.
We are very relaxed an we would like you to feel at home.
