Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Large clean room conveniently located near all downtown sites and restaurants. Parking on site. Delicious cook to order breakfast. Staff very helpful in arranging Black Taxi tour for us. We'd definitely stay there again.

I stayed only one night, but was impressed by the inn. Reception was excellent, facilities and room was very nice, as was the breakfast the next morning. It's located on a side street in a very busy area - I didn't hear any street noise. I would recommend Tara Lodge, and would stay there again.

We did an over night stay in Belfast arriving at about 1500 hrs, the staff were all obliging, warm and friendly , the bottled water on arrival a great idea. Car parking was at the rear and reasonably secure. The room was light and airy and very clean with an excellent en suite, good pressure on the shower. Breakfast was great,porridge with whiskey in the morning really starts your day. The toasted soda bread is to die for. As a footnote, we inadvertently left a cellphone at this hotel, the made contact with us and couriered it to our next destination. Excellent service.

This is a great hotel! We stayed here our first two nights in Belfast and it was everything I had hoped for. Very modern and clean, and really close to downtown Belfast in a nice neighborhood.
Our room was on the street side and was a bit noisy at night so I would recommend the back if you are a light sleeper, but other than that it was perfect. Ricky at the desk was a big help with planning where to have dinner and what to see. Breakfast was yummy, and the room was big and clean with a nice big bathroom.
Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for one night. Ideal if going to Queen's University, only minutes away. Hotel is small, tucked away at the end of a street. There is a car park beside it. The room we had, room 16, is a wheelchair accessible room and is really big with plenty of space and the bathroom is really spacious too, with a big low mirror and a separate lower sink. The room was really clean and bright and warm. The breakfast was lovely, the toasted soda bread was so good. Definitely going back soon...

We recently stayed 1 night at Tara Lodge and had the best night's sleep for over 2 weeks of touring Ireland. The location was great with the city centre an easy walk. The shower was great with terrific pressure and the bottled water was appreciated. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast menu was extensive and the food good. Off street parking was also a bonus.

while planning a family vacation in Northern Ireland, we book rooms at Tara Lodge sight unseen....I must say we all loved this place to stay....the rooms were clean and had everything we needed. The staff could not had been any nicer. The food was some of the best I have ever had. The porridge certainly was the best I've ever had. I would certainly stay there the next time I am in Belfast.

Room Tip: all of our rooms were wonderful.
