Puppy Love

Our new dog friendly policy is sure to set tails wagging!

We have a selected number of dog-friendly bedrooms; but please note that we can only allow small dogs into the hotel and a maximum of one dog per room.

To book your dog to stay with us, please email reservations@fitzwilliamhotelbelfast.com or call our reservations team on 02890 442080.  Dogs must be pre-booked and confirmed in advance with our reservations team. 

Dogs will be charged at £40 per night and we ask for an additional £100 pre-authorisation on check in.

Please contact us at time of booking to ensure that we have space available.



To ensure your comfort and that of other guests, we kindly ask that you and your furry friend adhere to these dog-friendly terms and conditions:

  • Maximum of one dog per room only (Maximum 3 dogs in hotel per night)
  • £40 add on for one pet. This includes a water bowl, doggie welcome treat, small toy, and cleaning fee.
  • So that space does not become an issue, we can only welcome small to medium sized dogs, up to 12kg in weight
  • Cleaning or repair charges will apply for any damage caused to the room
  • We require all dogs to be house trained
  • Dogs are allowed to relax in the lobby; however, they are not permitted in The Bar or The Restaurant
  • Contact details and pet details must be provided to the reception team on check in, in case of emergency
  • A lonely dog might bark for attention or scratch at the door, and we do not want to disturb other guests so dogs must not be left unattended in room.
  • Owners must be present while any staff member of the hotel team is in the room with the dog
  • Please ensure all vaccinations are up-to-date as there may be other doggies around
  • All dogs must be kept on a leash in public areas and lobby
  • We welcome all well-behaved and sophisticated dogs-about-town! If a dog displays aggressive or disruptive behaviour, we reserve the right to ask you to leave the hotel. Unfortunately we cannot accept puppies (as much as we love them!)
  • The dog’s owner is responsible for the care and cleaning up after pets.
  • Guide dogs and service dogs are permitted; however advance notice is required

Our Top Tips on bringing your dog to stay at The Fitzwilliam:

Upon arrival at the hotel, you’ll be ready to relax and unwind – here are some great tips for helping your dog to settle in.

  • We want your dog to feel comfortable and ‘at home’, so please bring any comforters or blankets that they like.
  • Walk your dog on arrival, as this will quell any restlessness they may feel.
  • A chewy toy may distract them and help them not to chew furniture!
  • Please stay close to your dog and ensure they feel safe and comfortable.
