  • Meeting Brigid is like meeting a ray of sunshine.
    Stepping into her home, I could not have felt more welcome with a beautiful fire and home made breads to enjoy along with Brigid's company.
    Brigid is just one of those good people that you are fortunate enough to meet sometimes and not likely forget.
    Everything is as you would need in a room. The special thing about staying with Brigid, however, is that it is her that makes the place the homely experience you are bound to have.

  • Staying with Brigid was a wonderful experience and one I hope to repeat many times in the years to come. She is amazingly welcoming, friendly and a great conversationalist. The house is full of art and craftwork that give it a lovely,warm, homely feeling and it is well within walking distance of Belfast city centre. There are lots of restaurants, shops and a beautiful public park a short distance from the house.

  • I had a great weekend staying at Brigid's house when I was visiting my daughter who's at uni in Belfast. The location is great, not far from uni accommodation or the city centre - in a quiet street but really close to the bus stop for town. Brigid's house is really interesting (lots of books, pictures, plants), it was comfy and felt like home. Even though Brigid ended up being away for the weekend, she met up with my daughter to hand over the key beforehand and another friend of hers was staying at the house, so she showed me around. Thanks so much for making it a relaxing weekend, Brigid. Look forward to meeting you next time!!

  • I stayed with Brigid for a week and I was made to feel so extremely comfortable that it felt like I was living with a relative! Brigid is such a warm, kind and lovely person and she really makes you feel at home. In regards to the location, it is in the perfect spot as there is a bus less than a minutes walk away that takes you into the city centre in a flash! I never even used the bus though as it was easy enough to reach the city by walking and a great way to get some exercise! By walking it takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes to reach the city. I loved staying here and would without hesitation recommend any one to stay here while in Belfast! My mum is even considering coming over and staying here when she makes her trip to Ireland in the future!

  • Brigid was such a welcoming hostess! She was absolutely lovely and was so full of information, and I hope to return back one of these days!

  • I only stayed for one night, but Brigid was a wonderful host who exudes warmth and made me feel very welcome. She has a lovely home with very comfortable rooms. I would definitely recommend her to anybody visiting Belfast.

    October 2013
  • Brigid's home is a beautiful Victorian house, perfectly located just off the Ormeau Road. When I arrived I was greeted with a warm welcome, roaring open fire and a cup of tea. My room was at the top of the house so 2 flights of stairs from the bathroom, but really quiet and cosy. I appreciated the little extras like slippers, a dressing gown and an electric blanket which really made me feel at home. The location is great as well, very close to the city centre but without too much hustle and bustle. Brigid herself is a really kind, energetic host who will go out of her way to help you get settled.

    October 2013
  • I really enjoyed my weekend in Brigid's home! I was staying while looking for long-term accommodation in Belfast and she was so helpful with my mission to find somewhere! My bedroom was comfortable and beautifully decorated, as was the rest of the house. I felt so at home in a new city and Brigid was so generous with her time, space and kitchen! Highly recommend this place to stay on so many levels, location, value, comfort and company. An ideal location for anyone visiting Queens or Belfast.

  • We stayed at Brigid's home for three days, and we enjoyed our stay a lot. Brigid is very kind, easy to talk with, she made our stay as comfortable as home. The house is very clean and well furnished. Public transport is just around the corner, while taxi to the city center is also very cheap (around £5). In general, it's a lovely place that I couldn't recommend more when you are in Belfast. I hope Brigid could recover soon, be healthy and happy.

About
I'm a native of Belfast and have also lived in both England and the U.S. I love traveling and done so extensively- over the past year, I have visited Italy, Russia, Spain and Germany. My professional background covers community development, further education and peace-building. I have been Chair of several community organisations and recently put together Belfast's first women's history tour. In my free time, I love reading (especially related to history and art), good food and good conversation. Over the years, I've seen Belfast transform and I especially love welcoming visitors to the city which is rich in history and great for the craic (Irish for fun and humour). I'm always happy to give tours and information on the social and historical nature of the area as well as traditional music and the surrounding countryside. Look forward to meeting you!
