185 Cliftonville Rd
Bright and airy double 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.
There is a bus stop just outside the door and it's a very good service.
Mary is a real sweetheart. I'm only sorry my stay was so short. She was frequently in touch before our arrival to make sure we were all set for our visit to Belfast. The room was huge and comfortable. The house is quaint and quirky like an old house should be, with creaky floors and beautiful antiques. Mary provided us with a wonderful breakfast and helped us clear up a glitch in our planned tour. The location of the busstops to and from the city could not have been more convenient - coming from the city, it's directly across the street; going into the city, it's about 1 block up the street.
Mary was so friendly and warm, and the house was charming. Breakfast was delicious, and it was nice to have someone local on hand to ask questions. Thanks for a lovely stay!
Mary was the best host you could wish for. She was very nice and her home is perfect, she took so good care of us we felt like being home ! Thank you again for everything !
we had a lovely, unique time at Mary's. She definitely spoilt us with her pancakes.The linen and the china, as well as the cutlery used at breakfast reminded us permanently we were being treated royally.If you do not mind sharing a bathroom with other people, this is a place you want to stay at.The room was spacious eonugh, clean and bright, just like we expected.The bus stop is a stone throw away.
Mary made us instantly feel so welcome to Belfast. Her home was beautiful, cozy and charming. She suggested some great sites to check out downtown (which is very close!) and had a wonderful breakfast for us. We were sad to leave after our relaxing stay in Belfast.
Mary was a lovely chatty hostess and made us very much at home. We were told to use the kitchen if needed (washing machine I think.) The room was comfortable with a shared bathroom just down the steps. She was very helpful when arranging when we would arrive and which buses to catch etc
We would definitely come again.
