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.

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.
Miriam's place was perfect for what I needed during my short stay, comfy bed, good night's rest, maps and info on Belfast in the room, lovely! Miriam is very friendly and easy going, I felt very comfortable staying at her place. Also I have to say....WOW! what a clean bathroom - puts me to shame ;) I couldn't have asked for more from my stay, except that the rain stopped!
We had a wonderful experience at Miriam and Chris' place. The house was extremely charming, in a beautiful neighbourhood, and they both went above and beyond in making sure that we had a warm welcome. My husband and I feel that we have made two new friends and we can't wait to return to Belfast!
Welcome was great, room clean. One husband and two boys stayed overnight when they were attending the PRO12 final. Miriam was very helpful, contacting us before stay and very relaxed.
We were in Miriam and Chris on 20.05. I really recommend this place to stay in Belfast. They are great, great hosts, will give you good advices where to eat, go out,... Place is also very clean. All together I give them top rating. And I hope we see each other next year in Croatia, or in Belfast who knows ;)
