Dream Apartments offer stunning one and two-bedroom apartments welcoming you and your favourite doggos too. Our St Thomas Hall property on the Lisburn Road provides the perfect space to sit back and relax, and your pet will surely appreciate the enhanced space to move around in a serviced apartment as compared to a hotel room.  We can also assist you on finding dog walkers and pet sitters in Belfast, with the beautiful Botanic Gardens just a short walk away from your apartment.
