Thanks for looking at my information!

I have a small house in a quiet area of BELFAST(UK), near Queens University and Botanic Gardens. Its 20 mins walk to the City centre and a few minutes walk to shops/pubs.

You will receive accommodation and food.
I am a vegetarian but my helper does not need to be.

I am looking for help with some gardening work, decorating inside the house and caring for my lively dog! :).So, you have to like dogs!

It`s a great base to explore the life of the city and the beauty of our lovely countryside (Giants` Causeway and Mourne for example). Also.... you will get a chance to sail on the lovely Strangford Lough (May-Oct), go for hill walks and enjoy the LOTS of free live music in Belfast! The museums, galleries and parks are free and there are always free cultural events happening in Belfast!

The Reviews relate to a hostel I used to have!!

Hope to hear from you... Feel free to contact me to discuss anything.

Thanks, Arnie
