I stayed here at the end of my round Ireland cycle trip and chose this bnb due to its close proximity to the ferry port. Mannix was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the local area. They accommodate my bike securely in their locked shed. The room was of a high standard, flat screen TV, tea and coffee. I chose a...

We stayed here for two nights during our trip in Ireland and WOW!!! The House seems a movie set, it's a old Victorian house. Our room was little but the view very suggestive, above all during the sunrise :) We had the bathroom ensuite, very small and the ceiling was low but it's not important, it's a ancient house. A...

Somerton House is in a nice, quiet neighbourhood, away from the hustle/bustle of Belfast. As well, the Lancaster Inn is very close by, with a nice pub/restaurant. The best thing about Somerton House's location is the easy access to public transit -- it's far nicer to enjoy the sights of Belfast's downtown by taking transit, than trying to drive oneself....

Nice, quiet neighbourhood. We had a great view of the mountains from a room. With the slanted ceiling, we bumped our heads a few times. lol. Room was clean and comfortable. A short walk to the transit stop. Ride all day pass is cheap and recommended. Parking is very limited and it is recommended to park on the street. This...

We enjoyed staying a little out of the city. The B&B is on a quiet street but very close to a bus into the city and only 5 minutes from the castle. Comfortable, clean and warm with a good breakfast. Friendly and helpful people. Would definitely stay here again. Limited off street parking.

We stayed 2 nights in Belfast, and this was the perfect location - a nice neighborhood just outside of the downtown area. The host was great. He answered all of our questions, telling us where to eat, what buses to take, where to park the car, etc. The breakfast was good too. I would return here.

I stayed one night here with my 2 children. We booked last minute as I had made a mistake on a flight booking from Dublin. Luckily I got seats from Belfast airport, but had to stay in Belfast the night before. We got a taxi from Europa Bus Station, which cost around 7 pounds i think. There is a bus...
