A warm welcome to The Malone, Northern Ireland’s finest, four-star boutique hotel, just minutes from the bustling heart of Belfast city centre.
We think you’ll love the tradition, tranquillity, elegance and warmth of our Victorian townhouse hotel, set in the leafy avenues of the University Quarter and opening on to Belfast’s Lisburn Road, lined with fashionable and unique boutique shops.
The Malone is a veritable secret, hidden treasure boasting everything you want in a hotel: spacious bedrooms and suites, function rooms for inspirational wedding celebrations or corporate events and the very best of that famous Irish hospitality, every step of your stay. The Guinness is perfectly poured in our Greyhound bar – enjoy with a bowl of steaming mussels or indulge in a meal to remember in the Gallery Restaurant.
Here at The Malone, we have generations of experience in welcoming guests. First opened in 1945 as ‘The Bowness’, for the last 20 years, The Malone has been owned and run by two generations of the Macklin family.
Relax and unwind with us. A warm Irish welcome to you!
Facilities and Capacity
A dedicated ceremony site is available for couples to use at this location. The Malone Suite provides an elegant space where almost-newlyweds can exchange vows and begin the first chapter of their life together. Here, chairs may be laid out either side of the aisle so that guests have an ideal vantage point for the big moment. At the head of the room, the couple can stand, hold hands, and declare their love for one another. The space is defined by mirrored ceilings with exposed beams, lending the area a graceful refinement. After the ceremony, the newlyweds can make their way to a site of their choice to enjoy some photo opportunities. The Malone is not far from The Botanic Gardens and a number of other landmarks, meaning that beautiful backdrops are readily available. When the time comes for the wedding breakfast and grand reception, everyone can make their way inside to enjoy the rest of the evening.
The Deramore Suite offers a spacious room where everyone is welcome to gather and enjoy each other’s company. Tables and chairs may be set up for the all-important meal as invitees settle in to enjoy the occasion. A top table offers somewhere for the couple and select wedding party members to sit and deliver toasts. Overall, the maximum capacity of The Malone is for 240 people while as few as 30 people can also enjoy the venue.
A variety of wedding packages are available for couples to peruse. The three main offerings are the Embrace, Cherish, and Eternity collections, and these can be customised to suit.

I booked Malone Lodge Hotel for my wedding evening reception for 29.09.18 as I got married in Cyprus 1 week earlier. The wedding planners were very helpful with the organisation and communication with the decoration team putting my mind at ease. Special mention to Katie and Suzi who helped keep myself and husband stay calm in the lead up to our big reveal. The timing of the evening was on point and the food was delicious, everybody commented on how lovely it was. I would highly Recommend this venue to Brides of 2019Sent on 04/12/2018
