I'm a Belfast native and have lived abroad and travelled the globe. I love welcoming people to the city and to my home and look forward to making your trip special. I have worked in Universities, Colleges, City Councils, Voluntary and Community Sectors and have a life time of community development involvement. I am happy to provide city tours outlining the history of the Conflict, and visits to explore the cultural and artistic legacy of the City. Please inquire about optional extra rooms in the house (I have 4 bedrooms).
Long stay guests may use the kitchen to cook. The house has 4 bedrooms; a triple room, a double room and a single room as well as my own room. There is one bathroom which is shared.
Interaction with guests
Ardmore B&B is my home and I live in the house where I am available, most of the time, to answer any questions or provide assistance to guests. I am happy to make recommendations for places to go, local restaurants, places of interest, days out etc.
Other things to note
Parking is available, free of charge, on the street outside the house. The area is a quiet, residential area and during the 14 years that I have lived on this street, my car has never been tampered with nor, to my knowledge, any of the neighbours.
Respect is an explicit and implicit 'value' of the house and is demonstrated in how people are treated and behave. Principles of equality, diversity and the promotion of 'Good Relations' are core values.
There are no spare computers or mobile phones in the house so please bring your own laptop/phones to access information etc.
Guests who wish to use cooking facilities and washing machine are asked to cover the basic costs of these services,

I'm a native of Belfast and have also lived in both England and the U.S. I love traveling and have done so extensively- over the past year when I have visited Italy, Russia, Spain and Germany. My daughter currently lives in Manhattan which will now be my main focus of travel.
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. I attend at least one class of physical activity each day; yoga, Pilates, badminton, swimming, walking etc.
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!
