... grassy mounds around one 85 yard grand tomb. The big one covers 1.5 acres and a lot of the big stones had carvings in them of various circles and squiggly lines. We then drove to Trim castle where the movie Braveheart with Mel Gibson was filmed. It's the biggest Norman castle in Ireland. Then it was on to Dublin about 45 min. away. We drove by Croke stadium for pics and to our hotel Bram Stroker to drop off our luggage because it was time to say good by to our wheels ...
... have not realized it. The big difference at this point the road signs are in english only and distance are in feet,yards and miles. In Ireland (the Republic of Ireland) the signs are in English and Irish (a Gaelic mix) and metric distances. Got to Belfast at rush hour, definitely not Houston rush hour. . Lots of traffic, but it is a city of only 250,000. Northern Irelands population is only 1.5 million. Arrived at the Jury's Inn Hotel and our rooms are ready. Up to our ...
... houses covered in protective wiring, and children out playing about the streets next to murals and memorials discussing hate and promoting violence. A few people have been brave enough to go out and cover up negative murals and graffiti with messages that provide a positive outlet for younger people who don't want to live in the past, and press on towards a Northern Ireland without violence.
We were also on the east side of town and, ...
... its feckn hot here, I'm sunburnt and was sweating like a fat Aussie tourist. it is so warm that when we got to our hotel, we were horrified to find it didn't have aircon. Mum is least than impressed with this hotel choice, maybe i should have taken our chances around the corner at the Europa Hotel its been awhile since shes been bombed, But on our dinner walk we discovered it too doesn't have aircon. Mother made me go down and ask about ...
... although awesome and spectacular come to mind. Day four, our last morning. We were lucky enough to get the same transfer driver who picked us up. When we told him we didn't get a chance to get over to Falls and Shankill Roads to see the murals and Peace Wall. He told us we had plenty of time to get to the airport and took us on a free tour through West Belfast. The main evidence of the "troubles" of the North. After that it was off to Belfast City Airport for stage two of our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Crescent Townhouse Belfast
Mon épouse et moi cherchions un hôtel au dernier moment à Belfast et tous les grands hôtels affichaient complets. Nous avons finalement déniché cette merveille qui nous complètement séduits. Un petit hôtel avec un bar populaire tout à coté, un restaurant excellent et beaucoup de places de parking dans la rue. L'hôtel est situé à 15 minutes à pied du centre commercial et à 10 minutes du célèbre bar Crown Saloon. Notre chambre était une suite et valait largement le prix juste pour avoir le plaisir de se relaxer dans la baignoire et avoir de la place à revendre dans la chambre. Le personnel était très amical et serviable. La petit déjeuner était inclus dans le prix de la chambre sans supplément pour une personne en plus. Comme d'autres commentaires l'ont signalé, l'endroit est très animé pendant le week-end avec des tas de bars et de restaurants aux alentours de l'hôtel qui font un bruit à réveiller un mort. Je recommanderais cet hôtel tout aussi bien aux jeunes qu'aux adultes en avance sur leur temps et peu sensibles aux poncifs de leur époque. D&D
My wife and I needed a hotel at late notice in Belfast and all the usual big names were fully booked. Our search turned up this gem and we were delighted. Small Hotel with a popular bar beside it and an excellent restaurant and plenty of on street parking. The hotel is situated 15 minutes walk from the central shopping area and 10 minutes from the famous Crown Saloon bar. Our room was a suite and worth the extra just to a relax in the roll top bath and have a lots of space in the bedroom.
Großartiges kleines Hotel
Tolles Hotel in zentraler Lage. Auch wenn unser Zimmer zu einer belebten Straße ging, war es sehr ruhig. Das Zimmer war sehr komfortabel und wir hielten uns gerne in der Lounge auf.
Das Personal an der Rezeption war recht freundlich, obwohl es das erste Mal war, dass ich in einem Hotel auscheckte und man mich nicht fragte, ob ich meinen Aufenthalt genossen und ob es irgendwelche Probleme gegeben habe.
Es gab allerdings keine Probleme und ich würde das Hotel empfehlen.
Sehr erholsamer Aufenthalt mit vielen Restaurants, Pubs und Clubs in der Nähe.
Great little hotel
Great hotel which was centrally located. Even though we looked out onto a busy road, it was very quiet. Room was very comfortable and we loved the resident;s lounge.
Reception staff were friendly enough although it's the first time I've checked out of a hotel and not been asked if I enjoyed my stay or if there were any problems.
Saying that there were no problems and I would recommend hotel again.
Very relaxing stay with plenty of restaurants and pubs, clubs close to hand.
Quaint - Trendy - Friendly - Fantastic
A great pleasure to find this place. Well appointed and my room 206 was perfect - £85 per night with a super breakfast. Ther eis a bar to one side that is joined to the hotel and a great restaurant on the other side where breakfast is served. Parking is fine overnight on the crescent for free. Some fab bars and restaurants within walking distance and a taxi into centre of the city is a mere £5. I have already booked myt next visit and this beats the other Belfast hotels hands down. Staff friendly and helpful and seem proud of where they work too.
A definate one to recommend
My partner and I had a fantastic weekend in Belfast and this hotel was perfect in every way.
Lovely little hotel located close by Queens University. The rooms are comfortable and the bar is a cosy place for a quiet drink. Recommended.
Great place to stay in Belfast
I really enjoyed our stay at the Crescent Townhouse in Belfast. The Hotel was nice, the people working at the reception desk were really nice and the location was great. The rooms were decent and clean and the bed was comfy. Would definately reccomend this place and would most definately stay there again. It wasn't exactly cheap, but then again, very little is in Belfast.
Felt right at home!!!!!!!!!
First time in Belfast and my boyfriend and I had a great time. This hotel had a very friendly atmosphere great rooms and and elegant decor. I am very picky with hotels and I was very impressed. The stalff was very helpful and the room was very big. The only negative comment was that at night you might hear some noise from outside due to drunk teenagers, I think its near a University. Other than that it was great and the breakfast in the moring was even better.
True service at the Crescent Townhouse
Nothing is too much trouble at this hotel. Each night I asked for a dinner dish "without the ......" and each time I was offered an alternative. ALL the staff were genuinely freindly and interested in me as an individual. Well done.
