Housed in an old seed warehouse, Belfast's Malmaison brought a welcome slice of the chic, stylish boutique hotel to Northern Ireland when it arrived. Conveniently located at the heart of action, this is great place from which to explore the thriving small city.
Eat: As with all Malmaison hotels, the Brasserie here lays claim to serving up "iconic dishes with a modern twist", here head chef Kyle Greer does his best to include some local, Irish specialities and certainly draws as far as possible on locally sourced ingredients. Dogs aren't allowed in the Brasserie, but you can take your dog into the Malbar and order from the same menu there.
Sleep: All the bedrooms dog- friendly and all offer that great combination of stylish design and a focus on simple comforts (great mattresses and pillows help). There is a £10 charge a night for dogs, but a bed and bowl are provided.
Walk: Get out and about and enjoy the many and varied delights of Belfast city. Take in the shops or go further afield and opt for a walk in the impressive Belfast Hills. For those feeling particularly adventurous, the Divis Summit Trail offers incredible views over the city, as well as all the counties of Northern Ireland (and even Scotland on a clear day).
