Avenue was an excellent start to our 3 week tour of Ireland. The residence is spotless, thew breakfasts great and the hosts very accommodating. Avenue is in a safe area close to Queen's University and students could be quit loud at night but nothing to cause concern. We walked downtown a number of times over our 4 days in Belfast... More

An excellent place to stay. The guest house is beautifully maintained and in a pleasant street in the university quarter. It is possible to walk into the city centre if it is not raining and the university and the museum are at the end of the street. There are eateries quite close, including Indian food. The breakfast was good. Alice... More

We booked Avenue Guest House after reading the many positive reviews on TripAdvisor. It was the perfect choice for us. Alice and Stephen are wonderful hosts -- friendly and personable, and very willing to answer questions and share information. Alice was even willing to answer questions and share details of how they renovated this charming old building and turned it... More

We had a wonderful three days at the Guesthouse. The rooms were spotless and the beds very comfortable. The hosts were so friendly and helpful it really felt like home. Avenue Guesthouse is located in an ideal place. The neighborhood is quiet and within walking distance to the centre. I would definitely go back and would recommend this place!

We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our 12 day trip around Ireland. It was a great place to start our trip and it set the standard quite high for the rest of our time there. The room was big and light and clean. The furnishings were of a very good standard, large TV and the bed... More

We booked here after seeing the wonderful reviews, and we were not disappointed. Clean, well furbished room, and a friendly atmosphere. We would happily recommend The Avenue to anyone looking for that rare commodity, great service. Our thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Kelly, the proprietors, for making our stay a pleasant one.

Really nice, warm comfortable room. The whole guesthouse was spotless. The staff are so friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for me. The cooked breakfast is delicious and was a great start to my day during my Belfast trip! And was a short walk to QUB, the Botanic Gardens, Ulster museum and lots of cafes and restaurants. Couldn't recommend... More

A huge thank you to the owners of Avenue luxury guest house. we chose it purely on location for sentimental reasons but the exemplary welcome given by Alice made it all the more special. The room was perfect, spotlessly clean and a very comfortable bed as good as one would get in a four star hotel in any city centre.... More
