Belfast is hotting up in May 2015

posted May 07, 2015

With the weather taking a turn for the worse, this May in Belfast is looking to be a cold month, at least to start with but with so many exciting events taking place in Belfast this year, it won’t be long until things hot up!

We kick start the month with the Belfast Marathon on May Day when nearly 17,500 participants will take to the street of Belfast come rain, hail or shine, to complete the 26.2 mile route showcasing all the sights of this wonderful city. Make Tara Lodge your base camp with luxurious hotel bedrooms with a fabulous breakfast to fuel your race. We still have some of our luxurious 4 star Signature hotel bedrooms available for Sunday 3 and Monday 4 May.

The Botanic Gardens, located just a couple of minutes from Tara Lodge are best showcased in May. This is the month when there are many wonderful plants in full bloom in the early summer sun. Even the rain is appreciated by the plants and the fantastic flowers still look good. Take shelter in the Palm House where you can have a look at the display of the more exotic plant varieties. 

The Balmoral Show takes place on 13 – 15 May 2015 in the show grounds at the old Maze site just a few minutes’ drive from Belfast. There will be lots there to keep the whole family entertained. From the food village, the funfair, craft village, sheep shearing competitions and the vintage machinery display, there won’t be a dull moment. There are also hundreds of trade stands highlighting the best of Northern Ireland produce, products and tourist hot spots.

Not to forget, its business as usual for many in May, despite the couple of bank holidays, with the Women in Business Conference 2015 taking place in Belfast on Thursday 21 May 2015. Contact us directly to get the best hotel deal for your boutique hotel room. If you attending the conference email our Front Office Manager to get 10% on our best online room rate.

Last but certainly not least we look forward to welcoming the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open to Royal County Down on 28-31 May 2015 in Newcastle, just 45 minutes’ drive from Belfast. Rory McIlroy returns to his homeland and his charitable foundation The Rory Foundation is the official tournament host this year. McIlroy has been instrumental in bringing many of the biggest names in sport to the Newcastle, County Down venue, lauded as one of the best links courses in the world.
