Whether it's a leisurely weekend or a longer holiday in and around the province, visitors can take advantage of well-known brands such as Travelodge, Premier Inn and Holiday Inn Express. Radisson, Ramada, Clarion, Jurys, Hilton and Malmaison represent the more upmarket chains found here. The city centre is the most convenient location for the main attractions, but many people choose their Belfast hotels near one of the two airports as an alternative for business trips.
From listed buildings to contemporary guest houses, there really is accommodation for every type of traveller that is convenient for most locations in and around this city.
Upmarket hotels in the waterfront area are abundant and many hold a good position overlooking the docks and with easy access to the sparkling nightlife. Alternatives across the river include B&Bs and apartments around the main thoroughfares of Bradbury Place or Orneau Road, within reach of central sights like the beautiful Botanic Gardens and shopping at Victoria Square.
Staying a little further out of the centre, in areas such as Newtonabbey, makes sense both for a more tranquil experience and for exploring further north along the fascinating coastline and the Giant's Causeway. Nearby you'll also find family attractions such as Belfast Castle and the zoo near Whitehouse. If you're making a longer break of it, Northern Ireland's vast lochs, the rural county of Derry and the pilgrimage site at Knock can be visited on a number of day trips from the capital.
