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 & cordial have become a guest favourite along with nettle other nettle beauty products which are all available to purchase(when in season) during your stay. Guests can also book Noreen's Nettlefest Food & Drink Experience during their stay.Details on website.

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.

Mike and I have had a delightful time relaxing in your home. We enjoyed visiting, ‘chatting’ about GOT locations and driving suggestions along the coastal route. I would highly recommend this B&B to everyone. Thank you for sharing your home.

Everything that makes you love Ireland is concentrated here, starting with a warm welcome, kindness and friendly atmosphere. We can only repeat and confirm the many laudatory comments about this lovely place, by far the best B&B experience of our trip in Northern Ireland, unfortunately too short but which will remain in our memories. It was a pleasure to meet Noreen and Jean-Paul, to have enjoyed the beauty and comfort of their house, the delicious breakfast, help and advice about point of interest on our road. Famous hospitality, definitely under the spell. Four friends coming from France.

As it turned out, we had saved the best for last. This was our last BnB during our trip. JP and Noreen are fabulous hosts; friendly, interesting and very talkative. Noreen recommended a couple of options for supper, we had an excellent meal at the Plough (Ply?). The room was comfortable, the breakfast was excellent, complete with some of Noreen's nettle cordial. As a final touch, JP wrote out a list of sites to visit before making our way back to Dublin. Overall, this was the highlight of our 10 days in Ireland. This place is the Best!

We am still talking about the Vandees even though we have been home over a month. The house was gorgeous and so were Noreen and JP. They greeted us at our car and welcomed us immediately into their home. The breakfasts were exceptional and the room was so beautiful and so comfortable. I felt like I was staying in a home with people I had known all my life. We had great conversation with them when we came in from supper one night and shared a couple of bottles of wine. It was so memorable to us and we would recommend this to ANYONE traveling to Northern Ireland. It was definitely one of the best places we have ever stayed. 100 stars!!!
