Reasons for trip


Rayanne House is only minutes from Belfast's George Best City Airport, yet with its views across Belfast Lough, tree lined roads and wonderful gardens it proved a haven for our first holiday visit to Northern Ireland. We weren't sure of what to expect of Belfast as a holiday venue or of the welcome we would receive. How our minds were instantly put at ease by the helpful staff and glorious surroundings of Rayanne House. Guest House or Hotel? We found a family run and family friendly environment of high quality. Our room was presented to a very high standard indeed. All of it felt rich, warm and welcoming. Complimentary trays were generous with several different chocolate drinks, assorted teas and infusions as well as coffee. In the room was a small decanter with a sherry for each, compliments of the house. The bathroom was black and white marble with the most exquisite fitting out – modern yet still retaining the ambience of the house which is rich in history. The breakfast menu was magnificent, from a full Irish Breakfast grill, to scramled eggs with crab cheese and toast; or try the prune soufle on a bed of green fig puree for a lighter start. Some 6 breakfast starters and 10 mains made breakfast a delightful and filling excursion into tastes and textures. The establishment is ideally situated for easy access to Belfast city centre with the Titanic Centre a genuine eye-opener just 15 minutes away. We also went touring around the Bangor area just a 20 minute run away from our accommodation, we spent a day away on the Giants Causeway trail to enjoy the Heritage site as well as the awe-inspiring coastal beauty. Rayanne House was welcoming as we returned tired but quickly recharged our batteries in the welcome and warm hospitaity of our hosts. Rayanne House caters for different groups, with single, double and family rooms; evening meals on request and special Titanic Gourmet Menu events, the menu for which mirrors the fayre transatlantic guests would have enjoyed. We left after our all too brief sojourn with a very positive impression of Belfast and a determination to return.
