This is a fantastic place to stay. We loved everything about it. Antonia has put so much attention into every detail to offer the best quality. Lovely spacious room, confortable bed, wifi available. 5 star breakfast with only the best homemade spreads, granola, fresh fruit, etc. And all in a beautiful setting. To top that, Antonia is a great host, very helpful and available, offered tips even before our arrival to make our stay comfortable and let us want for nothing. Definitively a place to remember.

We had such a lovely time staying at Antonia's place. The house is absolutely spectacular filled with antiques and has such character that you will feel like you stepped back in time . Antonia was a fantastic host! During the two nights we were here she made a fire for us each night and breakfast was delicious ! It is a very welcoming and comfortable place to stay . Her gardens are beautiful and we especially loved her little dog Dilly. We can't wait to return!!

Simply marvellous. I enjoyed this experience and particularly the wonderful breakfast in the dinning room. I also had a lovely walk around the walled garden and can only imagine it being glorious in the spring & summer. Antonia was a super host. Oh did I mention the lovely flower on the bedside table!

Antonia was the highlight of our stay. She was warm, welcoming and such a wonderful hostess. She has a family room open for guest use and each night we ended up around a fire, sipping tea and playing cards. She not only made my mom and I feel welcome, but also my brother, who is currently living in Belfast. She even let us rent a single room for my brother to stay last minute. The breakfast is delightful with fresh bread, homemade jams, yogurt, fresh fruit from her garden and homemade granola. She offered every morning to make us eggs, sausage and bacon and was flexible on what time we wanted to eat every morning. Wonderful start to every morning. Staying at Antonia's you feel like you are stepping back in time into a Jane Austin novel. Her estate has been in the family for generations and has such an interesting history attached to it. The gardens are lovely as well. Getting into city center, we ended up walking about 20 min, through a picturesque part of Belfast, and jumping on the bus for a 20-30 minute ride into city center. There is also the option on the train, which Antonia drove us to the first day, which takes about 20-30 min as well. Antonia was very helpful with figuring out transportation. The room was comfortable and spacious. Wifi did not reach our room.... which meant we just sat in the living room, by the fire, sipping tea and ing. No big inconvenience. Overall, such a wonderful stay. Antonia was so gracious and she has such a witty sense of humor. We thoroughly enjoyed talking, laughing and staying with Antonia. Highly recommended if you want a lovely stay in a historic estate from the 1820s and a lovely host.

If youre looking for the ritz carleton, this isnt it... But, then again youre on airbnb so you shouldnt be. The house is wonderful; feels like its been well loved through the years. Not only is the bedroom we stayed in huge, but it was also quite comfortable and a delight to be in. The icing on the cake was the study to lounge in-complete with a fireplace that Antonia is happy to light and a collection of dvds if reading isnt your thing. All that before breakfast the next morning. The breakfast room has everything you could want, plus freshly made jams that Antonia makes from the fruit in the garden... which you should definitely take a stroll in. The only thing to make this stay any better was Antonia herself. She was a pure delight. We got recommendations for dinner from her, which worked out great, and even had a lovely chat after we got back from dinner. Couldn't have asked for a better host!

Avoid over thinking about which room to stay in with AirBNB and choose this one- I genuinely can't thank Antonia enough for a lovely, relaxing stay at her home. What an experience from start to finish and made to feel more than just a guest. Breakfast with most of the food fresh from the garden and then an enjoyable stroll around the grounds must be done (weather dependent...). Sleep was the best I have had in a long time. Sunday...didn't want to leave. Thanks for being an outstanding Airbnb host Antonia.

Our stay was an amazing experience - from the moment we entered Antonia's beautiful house we felt at ease. Antonia could not have done any more for us - an exceptional host. The property is close to Belfast city centre but, being a spectacular 19th century house with the most wonderful garden, makes you feel like you are in the countryside. Antonia's provides a breakfast which surpasses, by far, any breakfast experience wenhave had at any other Airbnb property. Highly recommended!
