“Beautiful Place, Perfect Location, Wonderful Hosts”
We couldn't have asked for anything better. Ciaran's home is beautiful and spotless, as well as comfortable. The location couldn't have been better for us. We walked to the Titanic Experience as well as the Pump & Dock Station. We had dinner at the nearby mall. And the convenience store downstairs had great coffee and pastries. Ciaran's mum met us there and went over the top helping us with a personal situation. We didn't want to leave! While on our walks we saw other interesting places we didn't have time to visit. I highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Belfast. I would love to return some day.
Response from the owner Hi Michael, Great review on Arc 9.25, very much appreciated - both Mary and I are delighted you had an awesome time in Belfast!
“Great place in Belfast”
Ciaran's apartment is beautiful and centrally located. It has a great view of the new Titanic museum and is within walking distance of several great shops and restaurants. I stayed there with my family in april 2014 and would highly recommend this apartment given it's great value.
Response from the owner Thanks Jason for the positive review on your stay....until next time maybe! Ciarán!
We stayed at the apartment for 3 nights, 5 adults and 1 baby, it was perfect! The apartment was very home from home with 3 large bedrooms giving us plenty of room and a nice cosy lounge. It had everything we needed and a very friendly welcome was extended by the owner and his family. The small shop and deli underneath the apartment on the Marina was very helpful, although the milk, tea bags and bits and pieces in the fridge on arrival was a lovely touch. It is situated in a quiet area of town which was nice with a baby around but it was a good 10-15 minute walk into the centre of town. I have not stayed in this type of accommodation before as we always opt for at least 4 star hotels but I can honestly say it was a perfect find, excellent base and highly recommended.
Response from the owner Sarah thanks for the glowing review - and glad that this time you choose an apartment over a hotel! Ciarán
“Luxurious stay in an excellently located apartment”
We booked to stay due to the location as we were going to an event at the Odessey. We definately struck lucky. Your have a great view of the iconic Harland and Wolfe cranes, are a short stroll from the Titanic museum and film studios, 15 mins from the city centre and have easy access to a local shop and the excellent Dock cafe. The apartment is spotless and has everything you might need and more. Touches like milk in the fridge and shower gels just make the stay so much nicer. The rooms are well appointed and the beds comfortable. I would definately recommend this apartment to anyone I know. Ciaran and Mary are also great at keeping in touch and ensuring everything runs smoothly. They will go out of their way to try and accommodate you. The parking secure space is a definite bonus as well!
Response from the owner Hi Katherine, Many thanks for taking the time to write your review....seems like you got to see and do lots during the few days in Belfast! Until next time a great event at the Odyssey arena attracts you! :-) Ciaran and Mary
“Unbeatable Belfast flat!”
I stayed in 9.25 with colleagues from Madrid, whilst visiting Belfast on business. The apartment could not have been more perfect for our stay. The rooms were pristinely clean, ridiculously comfortable furniture, and Ciaran had thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible: from a chilled bottle of wine to the packets of cereal and milk awaiting us. The location of the apartment is fantastic - views of the Titanic quarter and only 10 mins walking to the bars of Belfast's cathedral quarter. Local shop downstairs for convenience. Ciaran's communication prior to arrival was consistent and very helpful. His mother met us on arrival and gave a thorough tour of the flat. She showed us directly to parking - another big plus for this flat being our secure underground parking space. I 100% recommend Ciaran's property to anybody visiting Belfast whether for business or pleasure, we were extremely comfortable and did not want to leave at the end of our stay! Thanks Ciaran!
Response from the owner Hi Ellen! Thanks for the awesome and detailed review. All good things have to come to an end sometimes unfortunately :-) It was a pleasure to welcome you. Hope your journey back to Madrid went well. Hasta la próxima! Ciaran and Mum
“Great apartment - 3 large rooms, good location great views”
We (family of 5) stayed over Xmas. The owner was very helpful! A christmas tree, decorations and a bottle of champagne were all provided! The apartment has three large double/twin bedrooms, a lovely kitchen and lounge with spectacular views over the ship yard. Short, attractive walk into the city centre across the locks and in the other direction along the riverside/marina and the Titanic centre and outside exhibits. Cafe plus shop/deli underneath the apartment. The apartment is great and the owner rightly proud of it - and very attentive of visitors - highly recommended!
Response from the owner Hi Dermot Many thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed the Festive touch the apartment had for you and your family over Christmas and no doubt you enjoyed the bubbles! Have a great 2014! Ciaran
“Loved my stay here and will be back !!!”
Myself and my 3 girlfriends chose Belfast for our Xmas dinner night out and fortunately chose Ciaran's apartment to stay in. Typically, on these types of trips, we would stay in a hotel but this was a much more relaxed way to visit Belfast. From the minute you book, Ciaran does a lot of the hard work for you. There's a map which made it very easy to find the apartment and Ciaran will also send a list of recommendations for places to eat and drink in - very useful. Once there, we were graciously shown around by his lovely mum. The front door of the apartment opens into a fabulous red tiled hall...very glamorous. This beautiful new apartment is stylishly decorated, spacious and spotless. The living room has full length windows looking over at the iconic Harland &Wolff; cranes. There are 3 proper double bedrooms (two with balconies that allow you to watch the river) and two gorgeous bathrooms. There's a fully equipped kitchen too - but I can only vouch for the kettle! You're a 15 minute walk to the City Hall (and a slightly shorter walk to the Merchant for great cocktails). Fortunately, there's also a taxi number in the info pack for high heel wearers. I didn't know the area very well prior to booking but was surprised by how central it is. On Sunday mornings, I would recommend George's Market. It was buzzing, selling delicious food and stuff that you never knew you wanted. There was even live music. The apartment is also on the doorstep of both the Titanic Exhibition and the Odyssey. These amenities, location and space would also make this apartment a perfect choice for families, providing much better value than a hotel room. Loved my stay there and will be back.
Response from the owner Hi Una, Thank you for taking the time to write up such a positive and informative review on Arc 9.25. You're right re the visit to St George's Market, there's a great vibe there at the weekends and I also strongly recommend it. Pass my thanks onto Gary for suggesting the apartment to you also! Have an excellent Xmas and look forward to welcoming you back hopefully in 2014! Ciaran
“Beautifully appointed apartment with industrial views of Belfast”
We used this apartment to break the monotony of hotel stays during a 3 month European tour for 3 crew members of our company. The apartment was very well appointed with large bedrooms. Especially beautiful ensuite in one room. The apartment is large with plenty of room for people to chill out on the balconies on either side of the building. There are mod cons in the apartment including wifi and clothes washing facilities. A modern well equipped kitchen with milk, tea and coffee for the late night arrival of the crew was greatly appreciated. The transaction was effortless on our part and very simple to do. I received fast responses through email communications and friendly phone calls to exchange the keys in the apartment. The apartment was clean and had beautiful industrial views of the yellow cranes and industrial shipyards. It is located within minutes to the Titanic visitors centre and Odyssey arena Belfast. A short walk would take you into the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Overall a beautiful apartment, and smooth transaction. Thank you Ciaran for all your help, Prime Cut Productions.
Response from the owner Hi Prime Cut Productions Thank you for the lengthy and detailed review. I am really delighted your crew members had an excellent time staying at the Arc 9.25 apartment. You're very welcome to come back again and thanks to the guys for leaving the apartment in a good manner after their week staying there. Ciaran
“A very convenient, clean, and nice apartment for visiting Belfas”
Ciarán's apartment in The arc apartments are, in a word, fantastic. Belfast is a small, walkable city, and the arc apartments reside just across the river from the Cathedral Quarter, which was very close to most everything we were trying to see and take part in for our trip. There is a small footbridge that connects each side of the river that makes things a very easy walk to get in and out of town (10-15 min), centralized around the clock tower. A cab ride from the arc apartment to the Ulster Museum and Botanical Gardens (the farthest point we ventured), wasn't too expensive at all ( 10 pounds) considering that encompassed the full length of the city areas that we hoped to explore. Our group was really happy that everything was such a quick walk and cab rides were really cheap to get back should we want it. The apartment itself is great. The beds were good for our group (5 total, sharing 4 beds), and Ciarán had everything prepared above and beyond for our stay. Water pressure in the shower is excellent, and the dishwasher, vacuum, and washing machine make longer stays and cleaning up before heading out really easy. There's pretty much everything you'd need at the apartment (and then some if you forgot a few basics), and there's a small convenient store if you need to get a few snacks. Parking garage was a convenient extra and the big complex next door is good for more easy going nights of bowling or seeing a movie. Overall, great experience, solid location, really nice host.
Response from the owner Hi Jon Thanks for your review…it was also great to liaise with you in the weeks leading up to your stay before coming from the US and to eventually meet you on arrival. I'm glad you all had a great week in the apartment and it made your fist stay in Belfast a great one! Ciaran
“This place will float your boat!”
I was sadly not able to meet Ciaran himself but the assured regularity of messages would put even the most nervous of first time airBnB users at ease. Fortunately this meant I got to meet his mum (Mary). Mary was very accommodating, helpful and more than happy to show us around the apartment. The apartment itself is stunning. From the ruby red sparkling hallway floor to the huge bath and massive en-suite shower. The bedrooms were fabulously comfortable as were the beds. But for me the Pièce de résistance was the main balcony that was overlooked by one of the giant yellow Harland & Wolff cranes. As you will have already discovered, the apartment is a stones throw from the Titanic museum and just a 10-15 minute walk from the town centre. I would whole heartedly recommend this apartment to anyone; it's ultra stylish, on the city centre doorsteps and there's a great big yellow piece of history past the balcony. My only regret was that we stayed for just the one night. If ever I'm in Belfast again, I'm staying here! And I'll fight yer forrit!!!
Response from the owner Hi Scott! Your one night was only a sample taste for you at Arc 9.25 - I look forward to hopefully welcoming you back there in the future. I also agree with your regarding the H&W cranes, I love looking out at them when I get up in the morning. A great piece of history for sure. Thanks for the review. Ciaran
