Tara Lodge is a fantastic little boutique hotel with tremendous service. A very convenient location made our stay pleasant, with a wonderful prepared breakfast each morning. The staff could not have been any better in the 5 star hotels in which I have stayed. Rooms are average size but exceptionally clean and comfortable. The service rendered far exceeded expectations at... More

Booked a 3-night stay as part of a surprise birthday trip back to his homeland for my fiance. In the initial secretive planning stage, the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly and the hotel itself lived up to the 5-star reviews I'd read. Location is excellent with plenty of bars & restaurants within walking distance, our Signature... More

My family stayed four nights at Tara Lodge on our first trip to Belfast. At this hotel there is a culture of providing great service. Every staff member was attentive and very friendly. Every request was met with a smile and an effort to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Arrangements for tours, taxi, laundry, etc. were always flawless.... More

We wanted to take advantage of a long weekend up North and decided to spend a day and night in Belfast to tour the Titanic and take a black cabbie tour of the city. Neither one disappointed us. In fact, we arrived several hours early and were able to park our car at the Tara lodge where we were afforded... More

We stayed for two nights and were really impressed by the attentive and super friendly staff, who made our first trip to Belfast a great experience. The rooms were nice, spacious, well equipped - we loved the Nespresso coffee maker, and very comfortable. Our only (slight) criticism, would be the lack of ventilation in our room, which meant the room... More
