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).

What a wonderful welcome awaited me at Brigid's B & B. I couldn't have felt more cared for. Great access to the centre and close to a great assortment of shops and a beautiful park.
I had a wonderful (although sadly short) stay with Brigid. I was just in Belfast for one night - I arrived in late, and was welcomed with a lovely cup of tea. Brigid kindly organized my taxi for the next morning. The room was very comfortable, with towels, robe and kettle. I would have loved to have a longer stay, and would be delighted to stay here again the next time I'm in Belfast.
Brigid was super welcoming, very friendly, cuppa on arrival was very nice, and lots of recommendations for the city. I was there for a couple of nights, and had a decent stay. She asked me if I minded moving rooms for the last night, and I didn't really mind, so did so.
Only real negative is that inconsiderate past guests seem to have smoked in the rooms (she asks people to smoke outside). I'm pretty hypersensitive to it, but I didn't like my clothes or the room smelling faintly of old smoke. Sorry to nitpick, but it bugged me.
Oh Oliver, I wish you had told me this! You are totally right to feel bugged. As you say, I absolutely do not allow smoking in the house and can only imagine it was from clothes that had been hung in the wardrobe by the previous guest and I hadn't noticed it prior to your arrival. I am so sorry and will be more diligent to check in the future. As mentioned in the house profile, I too have allergies and never use chemical products in the house. If it hadn't been cold and raining when you arrived I would have made sure the windows in your room were opened and the room properly aired. Such a shame your experience didn't live up to the high standards I set for my guests. Thank you for letting me know.
Brigid greeted me at the curb to ensure I found a good parking space on the street in front of the townhouse and to welcome me with a cup of tea upon my entrance. She was very thorough with answering my local/ travel questions and shared some of her extensive travel literature library with me to ensure my travel goals were met. I had a choice of two rooms, and picked the room on the same floor as the shared bathroom. Ample layers of blankets were available for my use and I had complete privacy within my room. Brigid secured her Irish tourist license and proudly displays it in her dining room. Her desire for professionalism shows through. The geraniums in the bathroom smelled so good.
I do hardly recommend Brigit and Ardmore street house. Brigit has been a perfect guide and has a Belfast native has an irreplaceable experience and knowledges on the city for live aspect but also more historical and political.
The porridge is excellent ;-)
The bedroom is totally quite and the electric blanket has been highly appreciated ;-) ;-) ;-)
Brigit did his best at any time to make my stay the best as possible including very useful advises regarding things to do or ... not do.
Brigid was so lovely and welcoming and could not do enough for us. We only stayed for one night but the room was as described and only ten minutes on the bus from the city centre. Would certainly use again if visiting Belfast. Thanks again Brigid
Fantastic. Brigid does not go the extra mile to ensure you are happy, she goes the extra ten miles. Nothing was too much trouble, despite the late hour of my arrival, and the requirement to conduct some eBay business that night, no problem. A charming, cosy victorian house with an open fireplace, remember those? An as much tea as you can drink, from a teapot, not teabags! Would definitely try to stay there again. Thanks......

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!
