George Best House European Heritage Open Day

George Best House will be opening its doors again for European Heritage Open Day (EHOD) on Saturday 14th September.

EHOD has over 300 FREE events and many of the properties - like the George Best House - are not normally open to the public, so this really is a chance to explore places that you haven't before.

The George Best House, 16 Burren Way, is the childhood home of footballing legend George Best. George lived in the house in the Cregagh Estate from age 2 until he left for Manchester United FC, aged 15.

The house is now self-catering accommodation allowing fans and visitors to experience life in the house for George before he left for Manchester in 1963. The house is decorated with interesting mementos, replicas, stories and images about George’s life, his family and his football career.

The George Best House will be open on Saturday 14th September, with entrance to the house taking place at 10.00am, 11.00am & 12.00pm. Experienced tour guide Peter Wood will be on hand to provide insight into George's life in Burren Way & Belfast.

Spaces are limited so please reserve your space by emailing
