I am in a lovely leafy area, where you will get a warm welcome, a jolly good breakfast and lots of advice or pointers on interesting local arts and cultural pursuits or just come and enjoy our beautiful countryside aided by a little picnic a la Mary
Bright and airy single room in Edwardian house where you will get a very warm welcome! The room is spacious and comfortable, with lovely street views. Breakfast in the dining room or in my cosy kitchen if you prefer, where you will be served a bountiful breakfast including home-made pancakes, brioche, jams and marmalades. Or, you can dine, weather permitting, in the garden and later borrow a bicycle, no charge, to explore the very lovely waterworks nature reserve nearby or further afield as your whim takes you!
You will sleep in cotton sheets and towels are provided.
Nestled close to Cavehill, birthplace of the United Irishmen, an area of great natural beauty and stomping ground of the famed and tragic Henry Joy McCracken, the period property boasts a country-style kitchen, where languorous breakfasts are also served if you prefer and a living space that is very amenable to unwinding in the evening.
The house is located within an easy walk to shops which provide very good produce and also a variety of takeaways. There is a bus stop seconds from the house, which provides a very regular service into the centre of town where you will find a bustling town centre with a wide range of shops and entertainment. Also within a few minutes walk is an entrance to the local park, the Waterworks, where a wide range of wild birds can be spotted.
Belfast is replete with cultural, historic and retail areas of interest and I can provide you with details of these just to get you started! (email hidden)ly capital city, it provides an array of stores within a walkable city centre. In the evenings the centre offers a similarly lively atmosphere with options ranging from theatre, music, small, traditional pubs through to high end restaurants, all surrounded by the many historical offerings Belfast has.
Provided with the room: free wi-fi, parking and a bountiful, cooked breakfast.
Such a lovely place. I felt very welcome and safe. The room and the whole house are very clean and most of all homely. I will definitely come back.:)
I stayed with Mary for 2 months. Her home is lovely and very welcoming. Mary herself is a great host and always there for answering queries and giving advice. Unfortunately, the contract was cancelled at short notice after 2 months (the initially planned lease period was 5,5 months). The house is clean and warm in the morning and in the evening and Mary's breakfast is delicious
That I chose to stay with Mary again says it all!
I've been fortunate to be a guest in Mary's house on two occasions and I can't praise Mary enough.
It's wonderful to arrive back and feel like you've never left. Mary is a wonderful host and is always ready to make sure that you enjoy your stay. She's easy to talk to but also respects her guests privacy.
Breakfast was served when it suited me. I loved it and those famous pancakes were as delicious as I remembered.
Look no further if you need a place to stay in Belfast!
Lovely stay in belfast with Mary & her lovely dog. Beautiful period house with comfortable bedroom, clean house & good restaurants nearby for dinner. Breakfast was lovely with pancakes an added treat. Will return on my next visit to Belfast.
Excellent is the word of my experience. Mary is really a friendly and knowledgeable person. She helped me a lot get understanding of the environment. The facilities are very cozy. Her place is quite convenient to come via bus from the city centre. Bus stop is just 2 mins walk. I also met a very good neighbor during my stay.
When I first got in touch, Mary got back to me immediately. There was no delay and She always replied fast to answer my questions. That is something I really appreciate when I am travelling in a journey and need the reply quickly.
I was made to feel very welcome at Mary's house on arrival and she was accommodating and helpful throughout my short stay. Mary's house is a great spot for anyone wanting to explore Cave Hill Country Park, a stone's throw from Cliftonville FC's ground, Solitude and a 20 minute walk or 10 minute bus into the centre of town.
Her breakfast was as tasty as I hoped and the big bed in the loft room very comfortable. Mary also kindly gave me lots of tips about to go (nearby Pizza Works is good for a quick bit) and what to do (the ornately decorated Crown pub was a highlight) and I'd recommend her place to anyone.
Ben it's funny you say that, when daughter Emma was home she had it set up like that with micro wave, pedestal table, both still there and I have two chaps who come back regularly to do exactly that, gazing down nice street view from good desk they tell me! Thanks for lovely feedback.
Ooh you have inspired me, instead of redecorating as cute bedroom, as was intention, I need clearout (anyway), cosy couch, mini kitchenette - coffee and lofty thoughts hmm! Mary :)
Mary is a wonderful host and certainly I will stay with her again. The house is situated in a good and quiet location, the room and bathroom are clean and comfortable. The pancakes are really delicious!
