We stayed for one night at The Gregory Guest House in Belfast on our quick road trip to Northern Ireland in mid September, 2015. Traditional redbrick duplex on a tree lined street in the south part of Belfast city, only 2 blocks from the upscale Lisburn Road shopping district.
The 14 bed guest house was renovated in 2014. The overall design impression is favorable – comfortable common area lounge with couches and fireplace, along with two large pass through breakfast rooms on the main floor.
It is a family run bed & breakfast that has been in operation for many years. Friendly staff are there to greet you, guide you to all the local attractions, and make your stay pleasant.
We met the daughter and chatted briefly about her family’s business. She recommended a good pub around the corner from the Guest House that served up a tasty evening meal.
The next time we find ourselves in Belfast, we would definitely stay again.
The room included one queen bed and one single bed, TV, and free wifi. The bed was excellent quality and we got a great sleep.
The high ceilings in made the room seem larger than its true size. Sound quality was good, we didn’t hear doors closing, or any noise from fellow guests staying beside our room.
My piping hot breakfast arrived quickly and included sausage, Irish bacon, Soda bread, Mushrooms and fried egg. My stomach was thoroughly satisfied from the tasty meal. Those who enjoy a plentiful Ulster Fry (another name for a hearty breakfast in Ireland), won’t be disappointing.
Other breakfast options include eggs benedict, a 3-egg omelet, or a vegetarian breakfast.
Good location within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. Both the Ulster Museum and Botanical Garden are nearby at the end of the street, about a 10 minute walk away.
You could walk to downtown area from the guesthouse, which would take you about 25 or 30 minutes. We decided to take the Hop on Hop off bus tour of Belfast instead. One of the stops is conveniently located on the same road, within a stone’s throw distance. See our full photo diary of Belfast here.
