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 cosy kitchen of you prefer, where you will be served home-made pancakes, brioche, jams and marmalades, free-range eggs and a big fry if you fancy it. 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 100% 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! As a lively 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.
Mary is just terrific. Like almost everyone you will come across in Belfast, Mary is super friendly and engaging. She is charming, problem free, and full of information. Her breakfast is to die for, it truly is. There was nothing better than fresh coffee, orange juice and pancakes in the morning. I can't wait to get back to explore more of Northern Ireland.
Mary has to be the warmest and welcoming person I've met I highly recommend staying in her house which is warm and full of character
'Mary puts the 2nd B in AirBnB' that's what another guest - Hello Nick! - said. And he is right. There is nothing like having a lovely cooked breakfast to start your day of walking around Belfast doing touristy stuff.
Mary is so helpful and accommodating that I will definitely be dropping her name whenever I talk about staying in Belfast to friends.
Thanks for the great accommodation!
Mary's lovely, cozy, welcoming home is located in North Belfast- a 20 minute stroll into the city center (or a short bus ride if you prefer). I'm from New York and accustomed to walking everywhere, so the setting was perfectly for me- away from the tourist crush of the hotel scene but close enough to everything you'd want to see.
Staying with Mary embodied everything that sets Airbnb apart from any other sort of accommodation. Delicious breakfasts, tea and coffee whenever it suited you, flexible check-in/out and the opportunity to feel a bit more grounded in a strange location by staying in someone's home. Mary and I ended up ringing in the New Year together in front of her fire with her lovely dog, Bailey, after my evening downtown got a bit too exciting. I cannot say enough about my stay- Mary went above and beyond in so many ways. I do know that I will definitely be back to further explore this beautiful city and visit my newest friend in Belfast.
Mary was the BEST host ever ! She so funny and really like to talk (and I love that, cause I like to hear). The house is quite nice, warm and it feels like u are in ur own home. Belfast is a lovely city, with friendly people. Probably I would be back to Belfas and to Mary's place. Oh, and the breakfest was delicious, nhami. :)
Amazing stay in a delightful Victorian home. The breakfast could not be faulted. Toast, cereal, freshly ground coffee, fruit juices and even crepes set me up for the day. The bedroom I stayed in was warm and perfectly adequate. We even had broadband as well. I had a car and there was no problem parking on the street.
Mary's hospitality was second to none.
I would thoroughly recommend staying here.
Mary is the best! So accommodating and friendly! Amazing house that just breathes with history and Irish spirit. Not that Mary herself doesn't :D It's like a tiny genuine piece of Ireland that you experience living at hers. Easy commute to the city center via bus.
Staying at Mary's place was absolutely wonderful! She was extremely welcoming and so helpful with anything we needed! And of course her breakfast she provided was amazing every morning. I would recommend her to anyone! You can't go wrong staying with Mary.
Mary is a great host and I enjoyed my stay. It was only for one night, I'll have to stay longer next time!
Mary was very helpful. She offered a ride between her place and the airport especially since I arrived in Belfast relatively late at night.
The room was very comfortable especially since mines had a heating mechanism in the bed, as well as plenty of space to put your stuff in. The bathroom was well-maintained.
Breakfast was definitely adequate and hearty. In addition to cereals and jams, she even asked us a choice between eggs and pancakes. Mary ensured we were well-fed. Moreover, she even asked what time we were going to be ready rather than assigning a call time for everyone to be awake to avail of the breakfast.
Getting a bus from her place to the centre is relatively easy though you may need to plan it well if you plan to go out on Sundays. There is a co-op food store approximately 6-7 minutes away.
Finally, the other guests were also lovely to chat with. We all had great stories to share with each other in the kitchen during the night time hours.
You will certainly feel at home in Mary's place.
