Top 16 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Belfast, Northern Ireland - Updated 2022


Belfast is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland, but why should you go and visit? Maybe we could tempt you with a splash of history, by suggesting the Titanic Museum, perhaps a stroll through the Botanical Gardens or maybe you want to go to take part in the Game of Thrones Tour. Well, whatever your reason, we’ve scoured the streets of Belfast to bring you the best Airbnbs in close proximity to the city center. Now, you can take part in everything you want to, without having to splash out on taxis and transport. These rentals also provide a refreshing break from the usual hostels and hotels with free parking. Let’s have a look and book one of these Airbnb vacation rentals in Belfast, Ireland today.

1. Luxury apartment with balcony (from USD 127)

This beautiful and luxurious one bedroom apartment has everything you could ever wish for and, to be honest, a bit more. Located next to the river in the iconic Titanic Quarter, it is a perfect location for tourists and has fantastic views. The apartment is surrounded by history, considering that the Titanic Museum is just a stone’s throw away and it seems that the hosts have given a nod to this heritage, in terms of decor, where both designer and vintage furniture go hand in hand throughout the property. The pieces have obviously been collected with love, over many years.

As this property sleep two guests, we think it is perfect for a romantic getaway. Just picture yourselves waking up in the bright, comfortable double bedroom, before moving into the kitchen to make breakfast, which you can enjoy seated in the spacious living room or watching the world pass by, on the terrace.

2. Quaint double bedroom (from USD 63)

This spacious property has a definite countryside feel to it that we love. We also love the wrought-iron double bed, wooden furnishings and floral patterns. Guests will be able to enjoy the super cozy living room, with plush seating, cute fireplace and soft cushions. You’ll easily be able to relax and unwind in the property, which is close to local amenities and you will share it with the host and his dog, Dylan.

The property is easily accessible to central Belfast by choosing either 10 minutes by bus or 30 minutes on foot.

5. Cozy double bedroom in residential area (from USD 23)

Next on our list is a peaceful loft conversion in the hosts’ house. As a loft conversion, it is compact, but we think that the hosts have done a fantastic job in utilizing the space and so they have managed to fit in a double sized bed, along with a bedside table and space for clothes. You’ll also be able to use the common areas of the house, including the kitchen, bathroom and pretty balcony.

Two things that are worth noting are that firstly, the host has a friendly cat and that second, due to its residential location, the hosts ask for guests to be quiet after 10.30 pm.

11. Beautifully decorated, friendly home

We love this cozy and quaint property, just 10 minutes to the center of Belfast, by bus. Although the single room is small, it is well decorated and the communal spaces of the property are very welcoming, as are the hosts. The bedroom is next to the bathroom and, due to its position at the back of the house, it is very quiet and relaxing.

The kitchen is well equipped and spacious, so you can happily cook up your meals before enjoying them in the very spacious and cozy living room.
