Description

The space

The apartment consists of 1 double room with ensuite, 1 twin room, a main bathroom including corner bath, spacious open-plan kitchen/ living/ dining with feature stone wall. A sofa bed accommodates one or two at a squeeze at a small laundering surcharge. The apartment also offers satellite TV, video, DVD player and USB iPod facility. There is free on street parking adjacent on High St.

The Apartment is a sympathetically restored first floor part of an early Victorian street house. It's Courtyard houses a delightful Cafe (The Goose) where you can try their fresh coffees, teas and scones (the warm cinnamon scone with melted butter is to die for!), breakfasts and lunches. Browse the jewellery at Tiffany's, or spoil yourself with a wash and blow dry, massage or nail bar at the Courtyard Salon directly downstairs. The Deli by Indie Fude stocks only Irish produce with an emphasis on Northern Irish. There are award winning handmade chocolates, cheeses, pickles, beef and much much more! Finally there is The Craft Room representing the North Down Creative Collective, some 12 craftspeople making a unique collection of handcrafted items.

You have access to a fully fitted kitchen with oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, kettle and toaster. There are two bathrooms, both with basin, shower and toilet. The main bathroom also includes a corner bath. There is instant gas water and central heating, and a free starter allowance of units for both gas and electric. There is free satellite TV with access to DVD. We have a washing machine, condenser dryer and clothes horse for drying. For fast drying there is a local dry cleaners who will tumble dry for a small charge. There is a Wifi facility but not high speed.

We welcome our guests on arrival and leave email and a mobile number they can ring us on at any time. We call with our guests to ensure all is well and service the Apartment once a week to clean and replace used laundry.


Comber is a small town and locals like to meet our visitors! There are great Cafés and Restaurants within walking distance and beyond. We have several artisan makers in the town, including Discovery Glass where Irene makes jewellery and other pieces to order, Winnie Magee who makes designer linen rainwear and The Dog House creative gallery where Pamela makes her own range of jewellery. We have a lovely selection of different walks: Scrabo Country Park park and woodland, Castle Espie bird sanctuary, Nendrum monastic site and the town's Titanic Trail (the ill-fated ship's designer, who went down with the ship leaving behind his young wife and child, came from a prominent Comber family).

Buses run regularly to Belfast City centre though outside peak hours the frequency isn't high. We are uniquely located on the outskirts of Belfast, 20 minutes by car from the city centre, Titanic Belfast, Belfast City Airport and more. But also 20 minutes from Mount Stewart (one of the National Trust's key properties), Lisburn and Bangor. With the whole of Strangford Lough and the Mourne Mountains within an hour and the Giants Causeway, Derry, Fermanagh and the beautiful Glens of Antrim all accessible in well under 2 hours, we are a good place to have as a touring base.

Comber has it's own Farmers Market every 1st Thursday in the month with lots of local goodies. We have access to a number of activities. From golf to sailing, fishing to kayaking, cycling to Motorsport and flying (helicopters and small aircraft) it's all on our doorstep! And if this exhausts you there is some great shopping in the Belfast, Lisburn and Bangor areas! We also have 2 major Outlet Villages within 3/4 of an hour if you are looking for good bargains! There are several local multi screen cinemas and there are always live shows in Belfast with many international names. There is a lively nightlife culture especially at the weekends in Belfast and Dublin is an easy 2 hour drive away.

Guest access

You have full access to the Apartment and the retail outlets and Cafe when they are open.

Interaction with guests

I am available by mobile phone and email throughout your stay.

The neighbourhood

We have a Guest Handbook with recommendations on most things from eateries to walks, local National Trust properties to various pursuits.
Comber is a small dormitory town on the outskirts of Belfast but also uniquely placed at the head of Strangford Lough. It is busy during the day and evenings but quiet and relaxed at night.

Getting around

We have a good bus service connecting with Belfast City Centre and Newtownards but it is limited outside rush hours and at weekends. There is a load of free car parking space within a few metres of the Courtyard.

Other things to note

Parking is free on-street, adjacent to the Courtyard.
There is a wide choice of cafes, restaurants, bars, take-aways, shops and supermarkets within a few metres of your front door!

Wonderful flat and location, spacious and airy, beds comfortable. Fully equipped kitchen though we ate out every night, amazing Irish food! Easy 20 minute drive to Belfast and great base to tour regional areas. No real wifi which didn't worry us but may affect others.

Thank you so much for your very generous review, I hope we see you again when you next take the long haul to the UK and Europe. I'm so sorry that you didnt mention the problem with the Wifi. I've just checked it having seen your feedback and discovered that it is faulty so not working. I hadnt noticed because my iPhone has 4G so I never notice where the signal comes from. We'll have it up and running again tomorrow so my new French guests will have it. My sincere apologies that you didnt have it operational when with us. It will be next time I assure you! Thanks for letting me know. Best wishes, David.

David was welcoming and helpful. The apartment was spotless and as described. Comber is a great place to stay - within 1/2 HR of downtown Belfast.

Apartment ideal for what we needed. Very clean and comfortable with two bathrooms. Situated in lovely courtyard with an excellent cafe and deli. Comber is a very pleasant town with good shops close by. David welcomed us on arrival and gave us much information on the locality. Unfortunately we had to make some last minute alterations to plans and would like to thank David for being very accommodating.

Many thanks Ken for your generous comments. I know I may be considered subjective on the matter but The Deli has some amazing products and flavours and they are all sourced here in Ireland and mostly from 'lil ole Norn Iron'!!! The Goose Cafe is one of my favourites: great continental atmosphere (including outside in the Courtyard) and menus with a very friendly and helpful team. It's a pity you arent here next month because we have a Crafts Collective opening with a wide variety of crafters and artisans offerings. Doesnt make it almost a personal boutique hotel-type offering?! Just trying to tempt you back again sometime!!! Thanks again, David

My family and me, we had a really good time in Belfast. At the beginning, I was a bit worry since Comber is a bit outside of Belfast. However, at the end it turned out that it's a great town to stay. The apartment is great. It has everything you need and it was very clean. We meet David once we arrived and he explaind us everything we needed to know. He also provided a really handy documentation including really usefull information. I can recommend the apartment for every family or even for four friends they want to visit Belfast.

David waited for us, but our arrival was delayed. He setup an alternate person to let us in and came back later that night to explain how all the things worked in the apartment. He also left some breakfast food in the refrigerator for us. The apartment was clean and spacious for my wife, adult daughter and me.

Hi. I'm David. I own Comber Courtyard, consisting of several businesses: The Goose Giftware and Cafe. Great for breakfasts , lunches or just coffee; Courtyard Salon hair and beauticians,
The Deli (by Indie Fude) with an impressive selection of only Irish, with a predominance of Northern Irish, award-winning products: meats, fish, cheese, preserves and pickles, handmade chocolates, local fruit and veg ;
Tiffanys for wedding and gift jewellery made by Margaret as well as scarves, tops and jewellery repairs. We also have The Craft Room boutique which represents the North Down Creative Collective, some 12 local makers of preserves, knitwear, woodwork and other handmade items.
It's a pleasant boutique-style experience just off the central Square in the small town of Comber, in the suburbs of Belfast with Strangford Lough and pretty countryside with great walks on our doorstep. We also have business Studios available and I run the self-catering Courtyard Apartment.
