Awards & recognition

Northern Ireland Tourist Board Certified

All of our Northern Ireland properties are certified by the Tourist Board and the certificates are displayed inside each of our properties.

All tourist accommodation providers in Northern Ireland must receive certification by Tourism NI in order to operate. The Tourism (Northern Ireland) Order 1992 prohibits anyone from providing or offering to provide tourist accommodation as a business unless there is a valid certificate issued by Tourism NI in force in respect of the premises. With having our properties inspected and fully certified this gives our guests peace of mind in knowing that our accommodation standards meet and (likely excel) the criteria set out by the local Tourist Board.


Happy Stays puts customers first and is awarded WorldHost® Recognised Business status in 2018.

WorldHost Recognised Business status is awarded to businesses that have signed a commitment to delivering excellent customer service.

Damien of Happy Stays commented. “We are passionate about service standards and are incredibly proud to have achieved WorldHost Recognised Business status. When customers see the WorldHost logo displayed on our website or inside our properties, they’ll know that we have made a commitment to delivering an exceptional experience for them. Not only does this generate a positive vibe about the accommodation we offer, it helps to promote Belfast as a friendly and welcoming tourist destination.”
