Belfast Hotels - find the best here:Belfast is undergoing a healthy revival in its' fortunes of late and there is no city so deserving. This revival in popularity is especially apparent when we consider the burgeoning hotel sector. There was a time when it was difficult to attract tourists to Belfast and this in turn led to very little investment in the hotel industry as a whole. Now some of the world's leading hotel chains have staked a claim in one of Ireland's fastest growing tourist markets.
Belfast has become attractive to the overseas visitor as a tourist destination and the lucrative international conference market is selecting Belfast as one of its' foremost venues time and again. As a result there has never been more hotel rooms available in Belfast Hotels. We find hotels across all budgets and tastes and there are some particularly attractive options for the discerning traveller to stay in.
We have selected what in our opinion are the best hotels in Belfast across all categories below. Please click through the links to read a full description and where possible you can make your booking online safely and securely when you have made your selection.
