About the Area
My house is located in North Belfast on a main bus route to the city centre.This is a fairly quiet suburb. I am about twelve miles from Belfast International airport and six miles from Belfast City airport. Europa bus station is about three miles away and accessible by bus or taxi .Bus stops outside the front door.
The post office supermarket and various other shops five minutes walk from the house. There are also local churches in the area so it is a convenient location all round.There are also a few parks nearby with lakes and plenty of greenery.
This is a good place is you want to have a relaxing break in a welcoming home.

I would appreciate payment owed, on arrival, please, then everyone can relax.
I ask that noise is kept to a minimum after 11pm out of respect for the neighbours as our houses are terraced and noise travels.
I would also be glad to have an idea of what time guests will come in at night for security reasons. Breakfast finishes at 9.45am and check out is at 10.00am unless prior arrangement is agreed beforehand.
Food and drink may NOT be consumed in the bed rooms please. Bed linen has been damaged by this in the past, so I have to introduce this rule. The dining room is available for anyone who wishes to drink in house.
Please enjoy the place and treat it as you would your own home.
Smoking is not allowed.
Adorei estar com a Rosemary, a casa é ótima acomodação também, ela é muito gentil lugar perfeito para se estar em Belfast próximo ao centro e supermercados. Além disso tem um ótimo café da manhã.
Merci Rosemary pour votre accueil, votre gentillesse et votre petit déjeuner.
Quelle chance nous avons eu de croiser, pendant notre road trip en moto, votre bonne humeur, votre chambre douillette et propre.
Adresse que nous ne manquerons pas de partager.
À bientôt !!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Thank you for your really warm welcome. We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely accommodation and would book our next stay in Belfast with you again.
We enjoyed talking to you and really appreciated your generosity. You cooked dinner for us and you brought us in town by car the next morning. Many thanks and we wish you all the best.

Staying with Rosemary was like a home from home. I was travelling on my own, and Rosemary was warm and welcoming and is an interesting person, and chatting like she'd known me a lot longer...
Rosemary was always ready to make a cup of tea (and a wee biscuit?). And a meal, if needed, as well as serving a very decent breakfast.
Rosemary was also very apologetic about issues with the shower, and got it fixed as soon as she could. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rosemary's as a lovely home stay.
Very easy-going, liked to laugh and made sure I was looked after. A lovely local woman with a cosy home to share.
Such a lovely woman and a warm welcome, her house was lovely and easy got to, would recommend Rosemary any time, she made us feel at home.
Had a great stay with rosemary one of the nicest ladys ive ever met and more then accomadating to help you in anyway on your stay, couldn't get a taxi and she dropped us into town and recommended great place to eat was lovely, will be sure to stay again when back in belfast
I spent 2 nights with my boyfriend and we had one of our best experiences. Rosemary welcomed us with a cup of coffee, biscuits and a lovely chat..the place is cozy and the bed is very comfortable, we had the feeling of being at home. Highly recommended ❤️
A very nice person who makes any guest feel at home, Lovely house and quiet neighborhood
