“Caroline and Fergal's house is wonderful and we had a great stay for 10 days with our 3 kids who were so happy they got to try the wii too (!) There is an amazing view, very soothing, the house is big and the very well equipped kitchen great for cooking (which we did a lot with kids). Hollywood was the best location to visit Belfast but also a variety of other places around and we also had the great pleasure to meet Caorline and Fergal upon our arrival, when they were departing for our home themselves; it was very nice to actually meet and exchange keys and they are wonderful people. It is also a very quiet house with big bay windows and it is very warm. The cats were great too! we would certainly go back if we could(!) :)”
Where is it?
Famous as the hometown of world champion golfer Rory McIroy, Holywood is a trendy town with a village feel. It has a number of independent restaurants, cafes, bars, boutiques and art galleries. It is an ideal touring base for all of Northern Ireland but Belfast is conveniently close, particularly for those wanting a quick weekend break to see the world class Titanic Centre (which was just voted the World's Best Tourist Attraction at the World Travel Awards 2016), the Game of Thrones locations tour, or wanting to try one of our 2 Michelin starred restaurants.
Belfast can be reached in 10-20 minutes by car, train or bus with our home being only a 10 minute walk to the bus/train stops. We also have the Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club a short walk away should you decide to arrive by private boat!
Belfast City airport is a 5 minute drive away and although you can enjoy watching the planes landing from our house, you cannot hear them as they descend over the bay.
Nature lovers will enjoy our beaches and miles of stunning coastal walks past Grey Point Fort museum and all the way to Bangor Marina.
There is also plenty for children to do, with Europe's largest trampoline park (We Are Vertigo) being a major attraction as well as the W5 science park at the Titanic Quarter.
