We booked one night as we had buisness to deal with in Belfast the next day and were so pleased by the service that we received that we regretted not staying a second night before returning home. Every effort was made by the staff to ensure we enjoyed the experience and a lovely touch was a card left for my... More

We descended upon Tara Lodge as a large gaggle of university students fresh off a plane from Canada, exhausted, excited, and unsure of how to fit in in Belfast. The staff of Tara Lodge were both incredibly kind and professional, and treated us kids very warmly and respectfully. We felt welcome by both staff and by the coziness of our... More

Can't beat the hospitality, breakfast or location. We stayed at Tara the first and last nights of our trip to Ireland and would rate it at the top. The people at the front desk were kind, generous, and couldn't have been more helpful. Tara's proximity to scenic Queens University, the Belfast Botanic Garden and Ulster Museum made it the perfect... More

My husband and I came to visit Belfast to go to the Titanic Museum, and we could not have found a better place. The room was perfect, the breakfast tasty and filling, and the staff were very helpful. Would definitely recommend to others and would stay there again.

Wife and I stayed in a Signature room a few days ago when we went to Belfast. Staff at Tara Lodge were BY FAR the most friendly and welcoming at any hotel we have ever stayed at ! The breakfast is AMAZING - easily the best I have had in any hotel. Our breakfast server, Ricky, was attentive without ever... More

5 nights here and didn't want to leave. Beautiful room, great location near Queen's, warm atmosphere, excellent breakfast (included), extremely helpful staff: my highest recommendation! Possibly my room was larger than most; I was in the annex next door.

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Tara Lodge and would have no hesitation in recommending it as an ideal place to stay when visiting Belfast. The rooms are immaculately presented, the staff are both helpful and friendly without being too intrusive, while the food and service are impeccable. The hotel more than lives up to it's Tripadvisor... More
