The Belfast region

Belfast is Ireland's second largest city and it has gone through a transformation over the last 10 years becoming one of Lonely Planet's top 10 European Citys to visit.

It is obviously famous for the Titanic and the world's best Titanic Visitor experience is a 'must see' along with the original Pump House, slipway and the SS Nomadic - its sister ship which ferried the first class passengers to the liner - has been fully refurbished and is an experience in itself.

However, Belfast has much more to offer any visitor including the world famous Crown Bar and Grand Opera House, the Ulster Museum, Belfast Zoo with its spectacular setting on the Cavehill overlooking the lough, the architecturally award winning new Lyric Theatre, the Odyssey Arena - home to the ice hockey team Belfast Giants and international pop concerts - and W5 children's interpretive centre along with terrific bars and restaurants including 'Ox' which recently won the 'Best Newcomer Award' in the Irish Restaurant Awards.

One of the city's greatest attributes is the ease in which the picturesque countryside can be accessed quickly - within a 30min drive you can be in the rolling hills of Co. Down, alongside Strangford Lough and its 300 islands, on the famous Antrim Coast Road to visit the breathtaking Glens of Antrim or by the shores of Lough Neagh the largest freshwater lake in Europe.

The weather is always changable however, Northern Ireland enjoys a temperate climate due to the Gulf Stream so even in Winter days can be relatively mild.

Since the city and the countryside are so close, Autumn and Spring can be a beautiful times of year to visit and often the months of May/June give better weather than high Summer.

August 2013 sees Belfast hosting the World Police and Fire Games, September the Hillsborough Oyster and Food Festival and May 2014 hosts the start of the world famous Giro d'Italia cycle race.

In 2013 Derry/Londonderry is the first UK City of Culture with a full calendar of events and performances and would be a great day trip (1.5h by car) as is Dublin (2h car/2.25h by train).

Belfast City

The house is situated in a vibrant local area of the city with a host of restaurants, bistros, cafes and shops within 5-10min walk.

Stormont Estate is 10min away by car and besides the historic Assembly Building, boasts terrific parkland and walks along with Belfast's best children's playground.

Holywood (home of Rory McIlroy) is 10min by car and if you are a golfer you can play Holywood Golf Club where he honed his skills as a boy. Shandon Park, Knock, Ormeau and Belvoir Golf Clubs are all around 10min by car, the latter being one of Irelands most scenic courses.

Rugby fans can visit the newly redeveloped Ravenhill ground to see the Heiniken Cup finalists ply their trade boasting some of Ireland and South Africa's top internationals including Rory Best, Tommy Bowe, Stephen Ferris, Andrew Trimble, Johann Muller, Ruan Peinaar and the All Black John Afoa - a Friday night at 'Fortress Ravenhill' is a must see - 5min car/30min walk from the house.

Music fans can enjoy a walk along Van Morrison's 'Cyprus Avenue' (just around the corner) and see the house where he grew up is just 15min walk away.

"Beautiful house and a great location"

We absolutely loved staying here. The house was really great, very stylish but comfortable and clean too. Is is possible to suffer from "cooker envy" ? I definitely had it! The kitchen was g… More
