An excellent experience and wonderful host family. Facility has its own entrance so I never felt like I was bothering the family as I came and went. Having a mini kitchen was such a bonus as I was in Belfast for a competition and it meant I could fix my desired pre-race meal. Family continued to check if I needed assistance with anything to ensure that my stay was satisfactorily. If I'm ever back in Northern Ireland I will be sure to stay here again.
How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
When can I share my contact details?
Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
