Conveniently located in the centre of Belfast

You're home will be close to Ulster Museum and the Lyric Theatre, both hugely popular attractions in Belfast.

The Ulster Museum offers something for art lovers, history buffs, excited children, and the curious. Their collections take you across Ireland and to all corners of the globe. Come face to face with dinosaurs, get up close with an Egyptian mummy, dive into their discovery zones, or just enjoy a bit of peace and quiet at their café and shop.

The award-winning Lyric Theatre makes a unique and vital contribution to the community as the only full-time producing theatre in Northern Ireland.
