Review Score: Exceptional 10/10

Meet your host…

Jean Paul Van der Velde

We have been welcoming guests into our B@B for many years. We enjoy meeting people from all around the world. Guests can be assured of a warm friendly welcome as well as some home baked goods!Noreen's nettle tea has become a guest favourite along with her homemade nettle hair tonic which are both available to purchase during your stay.You can also meet Mollie the dog.

BT67 0EZ

A decidedly different B&B located in a tranquil area of the beautiful Northern Ireland countryside where the emphasis is based on creating experiences and memories rather than just a bed for the night. Guests can expect a welcome glass of wine or tea and coffee, homemade goodies and a breakfast using local produce only from the nearby award winning butcher McCartney's of Moira.

The area is peaceful and quiet for those seeking relaxation and to experience rural life. Aghalee is situated on the Route 94 National Cycle Network and guests can enjoy a picturesque walk, fishing or cycling along the nearby Broadwater. Good restaurants are within a 2-3 mile radius and you will find good coffee shops etc in Moira village which is only 4 miles away.

Moira train station is 3 miles away where a 22min train journey will take to to the bright lights of Belfast city centre. A drop off and pick up to the train station can be arranged. The Vandees is centrally located for exploring most of the major tourist attractions in NI.

10/10 aren't enough stars. Noreen and JP are stellar hosts not to be outdone by their amazing, perfect, impeccably spotless, comfortable home. The accommodations were beyond our expectations. Hospitality at every turn. A much welcomed glass.of wine at arrival. We arrived late and JP drove us and later picked us up from a recommended fabulous restaurant. Terrific comfortable bed. Our washroom was stunning. The food at breakfast was incredibly delicious and lots of it, served in a bright, sunny dining area. We can't say enough. The best B&B we've ever stayed at.

Nous n’avons jamais connu des hôtes aussi charmants, amicaux, généreux et la maison est magnifique…Ils ont été exceptionnels dans leurs conseils de visites, leurs accompagnement lors de la soirée de notre arrivée, les apéros partagés et tout cela avec beaucoup d’humour et d’empathie. Jean Paul et Nono vous font aimer l’Irlande du Nord, mais aussi le B&B Merci à eux et s’ils viennent un jour en Provence, c’est avec un immense plaisir que nous les recevrions autour d’une bonne bouteille Thierry et Elisabeth

the Vandees was by far the best B&B we stayed in on our trip to Ireland. A our B&B stays booked through B&B Ireland were very good but the Vandees was exceptional. Our hosts Jean Paul (JP) and Noreen were one of the high lights of out Trip to Ireland and Scotland. Not only was the service they provided fantastic just chatting with them was most enjoyable. Our stay there was an unexpected pleasure. If we weren't on a schedule we could have stayed much longer. Don't miss out on this emerald on the Emerald Isle .
