We highly recommend this guesthouse. It was our first time to Northern Ireland and staying at the Old Rectory was one of the major reasons our family enjoyed Belfast so much. Located in a quiet neighborhood just south of the city center, it is especially well-located if you're driving since the M1 highway is just a few minutes away which we found convenient when we drove out to see Giant's Causeway. But the bus going into the city center also stops right in front, which makes it very easy to leave the car behind for the day if you wish. Mary and Gerry are lovely hosts and gave us many helpful recommendations during our stay. Their breakfast is top notch (My wife thought the porridge was marvelous) and gave us a great start to our days. And after our long activity-filled days, it was wonderful being able to return and rest in their comfortable rooms. Even though it was November, by the end of our three night stay, our school-aged daughters were sorry to be leaving Belfast and the Old Rectory and have told everyone they hope to return someday soon.
