“Home away from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2008

If you are looking for a place to stay in Northern Ireland look no further than the Braeside Country House. Nestled in the hills of Holywood, the house is not a house, but a home away from home. The view, the gardens and everything was simply lovely. When we arrived, we were greeted by our hosts Ed and Fiona, and you couldn't ask for better hospitality or kindness. We stayed in the Bed and Breakfast side with our family of 5 and loved it. Everything was done to make our stay absolutely perfect. The rooms were clean, with nice decor, spacious and very modern. We were provided with a lovely breakfast each morning. In fact, our children were trying to see who could wake up first to get to the food. Fiona was an absolutely wonderful hostess offering to help us in anyway she could, and made us feel so welcome we didn't want to leave. Although we didn't require the space in the self catering unit it was offered to us. We were able to use the laundry facilities and amenities it provided if we so desired. As this was our families first trip to Ireland we were absolutely blown away by the kindness we were shown. Our entire family would recommend staying with at the Braeside if you are travelling in that area. If we ever have the opportunity to go back to Ireland we will be staying with Ed and Fiona -- you won't find better.

Braeside Country House has been taken over since December 2007 by a lovely couple who have since brought it up to the standards expected for a stay away from home.It's now a shadow of its former self.It's EXTREMELY clean and very homely.It is set in well kept gardens which are beautiful for a spring/summer stay and has cosy sofas and a lovely fire to snuggle up beside on a winter break. You are very handy by foot car or taxi to all the local bars and restaurants. Overall I would highly recommend a stay at Braeside Country House.

Stayed January 2008
