The house was brilliant, like a museum! Pristine and full of character! It’s kept in its original form, like going back in time, and a must for any George Best fans. Communication was fast and the guys were super helpful and accommodating. A short drive to the city centre too!
Come Tour or Stay
Step into the home a fifteen year old George Best left behind in 1961 when he went to follow his dreams in Manchester. Curated with support from the Best family, you will get a sense of how the home would’ve looked when George was a boy growing up with his brother and three sisters.
Dotted around the house are family portraits, old school reports and letters home as well as an illustrated timeline and iconic photographs from George Best’s incredible football career. A guided audio tour is also available for all guests, free of charge.
Visit the Surrounding Area
Head east of the River Lagan and you’ll find yourself in EastSide. The beating heart of Belfast’s industrial past, this down-to-earth neighbourhood is thriving once as again, now as a hub for creativity, arts, design and alternative thinking.
Former linen mills house renowned craft breweries. Vacant college buildings are now occupied by contemporary artists’ collectives. You can even enjoy casual yet modern dining in repurposed shipping containers in C.S. Lewis Square.
EastSide is also leading the charge in environmentally focused urban development, boasting an unparalleled network of Greenways and dedicated cycling infrastructure.
Easily reached by bike or Glider, EastSide’s streets will give you a glimpse of our troubled past but it will be the genuine warmth of our local people who will provide your lasting memories and insight into our optimism for the future.

The locals are really friendly & we visited the Longfellow Bar & Cosy bar, which was brilliant. High recommend going to the Orange Cafe up the road, fantastic food for breakfast & lunch x
Thanks to Peter for a great introduction to the house and the history of the Best family life. We were not expecting to have a guided tour on arrival so it was a great welcome. We really came away knowing so much more about Georges upbringing and family life. The house was absolutely spotless and very comfortable and the street was so quiet. Overall we have a great stay in Belfast.
The host made us very welcome greeting us and showing us the listing upon our arrival.
