Where to Stay

Farset International Hostel

Set in private grounds on a small wildfowl reserve, this community-based hostel boasts spectacular views across the city. The hostel is well-positioned for energetic walks up Divis Mountain or explorations of West Belfast. A 10min bus ride or 20min brisk walk takes you into the city centre for extra sightseeing fun. More budget hotel than hostel, Farset offers ensuite twin rooms with TVs and tea/coffee making facilities. Continental breakfast is included in the price, but you can get a cooked breakfast for just £2 extra. There's also a self-catering kitchen, laundry and secure parking. The Foundry Restaurant and Mackie's Bistro serve up good food and can cater for large and small on-site conferences.

Farset is a great place if you are traveling with a group and are on a budget. It is safe secluded and yet not too far from downtown Belfast. What makes it unique is its community development origins. It is more than a hostel more like a Motel 6 in the United States with small conference facilities.
