The Belfast region

Belfast was recently voted one of the world's top destinations for 2012 by The National Geographic Traveller magazine, which called the city a “treasure” with an “incredible atmosphere”

Lonely Planet said this year that Belfast has shed its troubled past and been transformed into a “hip and hedonistic party town”.

Fodor’s Ireland named Belfast as one of the top 21 places in the world to visit in its new edition.

In 2011 TripAdvisor announced that Belfast was the best value UK city for tourists.

See and explore this super city and beautiful Northern Ireland from one of Abbey Self Catering's luxury 5-star properties.

We're less than 10 minutes from Belfast city centre & the new Titanic building, conveniently located to the main motorway network and an ideal base for exploring the Antrim coast.

The whole province is within easy reach of Abbey...!!


We are close to all motorways. Bus and train services pass close by, and guests also enjoy the convenience of a 24 hour shop within 2 minutes walk.

The 800-year old Carrickfergus Castle, one of Irelands oldest and most impressive Norman castles, is only 8 miles away. Belfast Zoo, Fortwilliam Golf Club, the beautiful and historic Cave Hill offering stunning views over Belfast & the Lough, are all only ten minutes drive.

The main residence has direct private access to the coastal path and beach, where you can enjoy leisurely walks and a gently scenic cycle.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review of May Lodge. We loved having you and your wife to stay - and especially arranged for the Giro to pass our grounds so that you would have a ringside view of them ! I'm so pleased that you enjoyed Belfast as well and hope that you will return sometime and bring your friends with you.

"amazing stay"

Despite a lot of rain the lodge was one of the many positives during our stay. Comfortable, spacious, conveniently located, clean, well decorated are some of the positive comments i have about it. Not forgetting to mention the warm and helpful hosts. Would definitely recommend it.

It was such a pleasure to have you and your friends stay here in May Lodge and I'm so glad that you also enjoyed your stay. Many thanks for the chocolates and flowers which you left for me when you left!

Great location. Only took 15 mins to get to East Belfast. Very convenient for shopping centre (including M&S). We loved the access to the shore and cycle path. Well equipped. One slight quibble is t… More

Thank you for your complimentary remarks on May Lodge and for awarding us the top rating of 5 for 'excellent'. Certainly we are getting wonderful feedback on the location and facilities. Your comments are all noted. I would like to reassure you that I treat my visitors' privacy with utmost concern and I have never entered the house when they weren't there without prior notice. I like to greet visitors within an hour or so of their arrival, and at this stage I left the Visitors Book with you and explained that, as we were heading off on holiday ourselves on Sunday evening, I would collect it around 6p.m. You kindly left it on the hall table so I was simply able to collect it without entering the house. I do my utmost to make my guests' visit perfect and do hope that this didn't spoil the wonderful occasion of your Mother's 90th Birthday celebrations.
