If you are following us on Facebook, then you would definitely see how I enjoyed Northern Ireland. If not, then check our photos and you will see how I unleashed the kid within me. Quite frankly, this should be included in anyone’s bucket list simply because, it is astonishing. And if you are staying at Belfast for a couple of days, it is a must that you choose the best accommodations out there so you can fully maximize what the capital has to offer.
But if you are going to look for rooms in the city on your own, it can be pretty challenging. Chances are, you won’t be able to get the best rates. Plus, you can’t be so sure if the property resembles to what you see online.
Luckily, RoomAuction.com helped us in looking for affordable deals. And boy, our unit was just divine. Once again, I felt like a multi – million traveler and I’m going to share with you what to expect at Apple Apartments Belfast, one of the accommodations that made our North Ireland trip worthwhile.
Apple Apartments Belfast is highly recommended not just because of their impeccable rooms, but also its strategic location. In just less than 30 minutes, you would be able to reach the airport. It is that convenient!
We were assisted by a very hospitable staff from Apple Apartments Belfast, Connor. They also have multi – lingual staff that will welcome you with huge smiles. They are very knowledgeable on the ‘what to dos’ around the area and they are always happy to assist you in tours or even when looking for car rentals.
Apple Apartments Belfast is considered as one of the bestsellers in the area. Why wouldn’t it be? It is located in both the Obel Tower and in the building adjacent to it. It is so accessible, you can walk to the city center in just 10 minutes. It doesn’t matter if you are traveling for business or for leisure because it is definitely in the heart of the city. Plus, the apples are good addition to the entire room. ☺
As travel bloggers, we are very particular with WIFI. And I must say, Apple Apartments Belfast was a good choice. It has a 24 – hour concierge so you can be sure that someone will take your call, if needed.
What I also like about the apartment is that it provides you with fantastic views regardless of the room type you choose. They have the following room types and you can pick the one that can accommodate you or your entire group:
Standard Two – Bedroom Apartment
Three - Bedroom Apartment
Two – Bedroom Apartment
Deluxe – Three Bedroom Apartment

Penthouse Two – Bedroom Apartment
They were so kind and gave us the spacious 2BR. Seriously, I can do cartwheels in the room because it is massive! Here’s what you can find in your rooms.
Bathroom with Toiletries
Flat – screen TV (I doubt if you will turn it on for a long time. After all, Belfast is such a nice city, you can spend the entire day outside)
Fully – Equipped Kitchen and Dining Area (Perfect if you want to cook your own dishes to save some cash)
Their rooms scream cleanliness. It is obvious that the whole property is well – maintained and in its best condition. It’s pretty much homey and also ideal for families and large groups. However, please note that pets are not allowed in Apple Apartments Belfast.
But if you feel so tired to cook after roaming around Belfast, you can always go to the on – site restaurant in the apartment. They offer good food which will keep you satisfied for another round of tour.

Request for a room that has the city view. Good thing that most rooms in Apple Apartments Belfast will give you some jaw - dropping sights. It would be great to open up your curtains in the morning while you sip your hot chocolate. Or at night, when you want to set – up a romantic dinner.
And since Apple Apartments Belfast is in the city, you can do awesome activities without traveling far. And here are some fun things to do while you are here.
It was almost 2 decades ago when the blockbuster movie, Titanic, made noise around the world. And after the movie, came millions of enthusiasts who would like to know what happened to the famous ship. In Belfast, you will know the deepest stories that were never told in the big screen. Plus, you can also enjoy amazing feast like those of the first – class passengers of Titanic.
If you are fascinated with castles, then visit this one at the Cave Hill. To date, it is considered a ‘working castle’ where you can have conferences, large gatherings or even a wedding reception. Ah, weddings!
Perfect if you have that thirst for new knowledge. You can find so much in here and is highly recommended if you have kids with you. They have amazing photos, and definitely a tour in here will be worth it. You are to learn so much from Ulster museum.
Crumlin Road Gaol
A trip here might seem unusual, but if you want something different, you should try it out. The Crumlin Road Gaol used to be a jail until 1996. It is where the high profile prisoners were housed. It can be a bit creepy and eerie to go here because it’s the same spot where a number of people were executed. And yes, it is said to have some paranormal activities.
St. George’s Market
But if you want to do some shopping and if you feel like enjoying some local food, then the best spot would be St. George’s market. The environment is so relaxed and you get to have a glimpse of what the locals do. You just have to be careful though. Like any other tourist spots, there will always be pickpockets.
