Our first stop today was the gravesite of Ireland's native poet, W. B. Yeats.
We then toured the factory of Belleek Pottery and watched the artisans form intricate designs. This factory has been in operation since the 1850's, At that time, all of the materials used in the pottery, were mined right here in Ireland. The supply has been …
We arrived in Belfast early on May 18th. We were able to get Joan a wheelchair as her mobility problems continued. This was a great help in getting around the ship.
Because we had been in Belfast before and knew it was a ship building city we were content with a bus trip around the city. Belfast, of course, is the home of the Titanic. She was built in its shipyards. Today only two shipyards are active. From our balcony ...
... different pubs before it hit me like a Mack truck that I was hammered. Knowing I had to YET AGAIN get on a bus in the morning, I decided to bow out gracefully. At that point it was only Jenny and Johnny left and they poured me Into a cab bound for Madison's. Once I had feet on the ground, I realized that putting food in my stomach would be more than a good idea. I got a burger and fries across the street and proceeded to eat about 10 percent of them before sleep became more ...
... it is to look after myself first. For the past several years, I thought I was in control of my life, and able to change a numerous areas of it, all while staying safe in my little comfort zoned-bubble.. I was wrong. But, maybe that was a good thing. I can look back and see how okay I was with mediocracy, take note of it, and be sure not to fall back into that same way of life again.

After finding a laundromat where they did our laundry while we browsed and had coffee, we wandered that mile of seaside parallel to the promenade and lunched at that Porterhouse pub. In the late afternoon we headed north to Belfast and the Hotel Templepatrick. The hotel was quite rural, we had picked it because it advertised a shuttle to the airport, but when we arrived we found there wouldn't be ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Stormont Hotel Belfast
I flew in from California on Christmas eve 2002 to surprise my family on Christmas day. I booked one night at the Stormont. The hotel was just about empty when I arrived late on Christmas eve, but there were very pleasant staff at the desk. My room was cozy and welcoming. I had a personalized welcome/Christmas card on my bed signed by the manager along with a little basket of goodies. I felt most welcome! I declined a wake up call thinking I'd wake easily. But was awakened by a call from the front desk politely asking if I'd be staying longer and if they could do anything for me. It was lunch time! Ha ha - yea! how about a swift kick out the door! I didn't eat there, but the place was buzzing with families who'd come for the Christmas Carvery when I checked out. My experience was very pleasant and I would definately stay at the Stormont again.
A Great Hotel to Stay In!
This was my first visit to Belfast and I hope it will not be my last! Staying at The Stormont Hotel was a sheer delight. The bedroom was huge and spotless. The staff pleasant, efficient and very welcoming, the food excellent! Best hotel breakfast I've had for years! Thank you Stormont Hotel! I'll be back.
My wife & I stayed in this fantastic hotel for 3 nights at the end of Jan '05. Could not fault in any respect. From the moment we arrived, the staff, especially Michael the Concierge, when out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We had dinner in both restaurants and found the meals excellent. Special thanks to Julie-Anne. We'll be back again soon!!
We stayed for a Saturday night whilst visiting friends in the area. Arrived at 1pm to check in and were told that as they were busy the rooms were still being prepard and were not ready for release. We asked if we could complete the paperwork but were told that this was not possible.
Stayed in the stormont overnight as it was close to the ferry in the morning, staff were really helpful, as if each and everyone had won the lottery that day, service with a genuine smile, rooms were very big, huge beds, televisions in room huge, food awesome.
Will definately return to this hotel. have read the other reviews and i just wonder if the one person who was disapointed was not a manager of a rivalhotel?? very biased...... top notch hotel well deserved of the 4 * rating
Really nice hotel, friendly staff, great location. Go for a walk round Stormont Castle while you are there
Stormont Hotel -
The Stormont hotel is excellent !! what more can I say...I stayed there last summer. The hotel staff are really friendly and helpfull. The rooms are airy and spacious. Excellent location, (just outside belfast town - opposite stormont parliment buildings.) In my personal opinoun the Stormont is is an ideal base for touring Northern Irelands many tourist attractions. I will certainly be going back again!!
Loved Belmont and Stormont
My husband and I have just returned from a VERY enjoyable three-day stay at the Stormont Hotel. The facilities were excellent! We had a very comfortable room (probably the best we've ever had) and couldn't fault the hotel at all. The staff were very friendly and helpful indeed, and the food was also very good . We really couldn't fault the hotel or staff at all. This won't be our last stay at the Stormont and we look forward to staying there again before too long! A MOST ENJOYABLE STAY!
The person who wrote the "Disappointed" review must have been very hard to please or didn't stay at the same hotel as me. 40 of us stayed the weekend at Stormont Hotel and it is a beautiful hotel with very spacious, comfortable accommodation and excellent meals. The staff are so helpful and friendly and the level of service is second to none. Some of our party have stayed in many high quality hotels and said they would love to stay longer. Highly recommended.
Stormont Hotel Dissapointment
I urge you to not visit the Stormont Hotel, because there is nothing worse that waisting you time! The accomitations are spartian and the hotel even looks like a crazy house. There are fare better hotels in Belfast, but be careful and not go to the Stormont or the Europa!
