Whether you’re after extravagance and sanctuary or a place literally just to sleep, we’ve got 15 places available to book across Belfast that are sure to please, whatever your tastes and budget. For those with a central location in mind, there’s a range of well-known hotels and serviced apartments to take your pick of. Popular choice, the Ramada Encore is a strong contender. Slap bang in the buzzing Cathedral Quarter of northern Belfast, this place is the perfect base to toddle back to after exploring the bars and restaurants. However, heel-wearers, beware: you’ll have some cobbled streets to navigate. Those looking for a bit of culture will be well-placed here, too, as it’s only a hop, skip and a jump across the River Lagan to the Titanic Quarter. Other popular 3-star choices in the heart of the city include the Ibis by the Linen Quarter and the Park Inn Hotel in Queen’s Quarter, both of which offer a sophisticated base within easy access to city attractions, as well as onsite bars, Wi-Fi and breakfast facilities.
Whilst there are loads of places to stay right in the middle of the action, travelling a little further afield has its perks, especially if you’ve got luxury in mind. The 4-star Crowne Plaza Belfast is only a 15-minute drive south of the city centre/£12 in a taxi; has three restaurants to work through and even has its own onsite health club and beauty services.
For those looking north of the centre, highly rated Ben Madigan Guest House is lavishly furnished and spacious enough to sleep up to 10 people in nearby Newtownabbey. With a barbeque, cosy coal fireplace and a nearby pub, this tried and tested Hen retreat gives you the option to kick back and relax, whilst also only being a 10-minute car journey away from the city. A taxi will set you back around £10 each way, or alternatively, you could hop on the bus that stops on Ben Madigan’s doorstep. From £3.50, you can buy an unlimited day travel ticket, bussing you to the city in about 30 mins.
LNOF’s expansive reserved room allocation gives us a great foothold in the city, but the age-old phrase: ‘the early bird catches the worm’ rings true, here. The earlier you book, the better chance we have of bagging the accommodation of your dreams. In terms of planning your weekend, bear in mind that events throughout certain times of the year can put pressure on our regular allocation. For example, music lovers flock to Ormeau Park in June for Belsonic Festival and city-wide celebrations for Pride start in late July and run through to early August. But don’t worry, our sales team will give you the heads up if you enquire about a stay during peak times and will try their very best to accommodate your needs.
Ach, of course you are. Last Night Ltd is a grand and reputable travel company, so it is. Our ABTA protection (Y6354) means you and any money paid towards your trip are in safe hands, should anything go awry in the lead-up. So, the only thing left to worry about is how you’re going to fit so many pints of Guinness into just one trip. Have a good read of how ABTA protection affects your Belfast trip here here.
