I stayed at the Old Rectory two nights this month. I really appreciate my holiday. Old rectory has beautiful rooms, it's close to the city town ( half an hour by foot and a few minutes by bus ). I really enjoyed the brakfast, it was absolutely fabulous!

Not often do you find B+B owners who get it just right. Everything about the Old Rectory says quality. Rooms are bright, beds really comfy, especially the pillows. Breakfast is as good as you will get anywhere, indeed given the fact it is all made from scratch it far outperforms most 5 star hotels. Owners are happy to help with... More

We arrived at The Old Rectory tired and weary from a long convoluted drive from Donegal. We called this guesthouse last minute-a recommendation from Paula at The Green Gate Guesthouse where we were staying in Ardara (another BnB not to miss!). Happily, they had accommodations and Mary (owner) was extremely helpful sorting out the details etc. The guesthouse is top... More

After a two night stay at the Belfast Hilton we checked out and luckily found this great B & B for our final night. The only information we had was a couple of lines write up in the freebie Belfast Guide. Listed as 'An Old Rectory' so first on the list, we rang not expecting to be able to get... More

My first trip to Ireland and Belfast was the beginning of the trip. I'm so glad I found Old Rectory. Mary and Gerry were wonderful. Mary gave me some great tips on what to do and where to eat. Mourne seafood was fantastic. My first day I arrived I was exhausted and Mary made sure that my room was ready... More

An excellent stay ,wonderful breakfasts ,very comfortable and most welcoming .Mary was also a very knowledgeable and helpful local guide.We would always stay again. We did have a slight problem identifying the old rectory as there was no clear B&B sign. J &J Suffolk

We stayed at The Old Rectory House on July 20th; Gerry and his wife run a beautiful B&B. I was most taken with the stained glass windows and color schemes throughout the house. We had been traveling for quite some time and were made to feel at home immediately upon arrival. Gerry informed us of an excellent local seafood restaurant... More

We had a little trouble finding the place but were greeted with open arms once we arrived. Mary was very accommodating to our arrival time, and gave us excellent tips on places to see and eat in the city. Our best experiences in the city came from her recommendations. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was absolutely... More

Don't be concerned about distance from city regular cheap bus stop at your door step. Good size room and the best breakfast we experienced to date where else can you get oven cooked eggs drizzled with duck breast. All standard breakfast available but with an ex executive chef as owner be adventurous . Great people , great location and Belfast... More
