George Best's childhood house turned into holiday home
London, Aug 19 (ANI): Tourists will now be able to get an insight into George Best's childhood memories, as the footie legend's house in Belfast has been transformed into a holiday spot.
For between 60 pounds and 125 pounds-a-night, visitors can spend up to two weeks in the modest, three-bedroom terrace on the Cregagh Estate in east Belfast, Sky News reported.
The Best family moved to the newly-built property in 1949 when George was just 2, and George's father Dickie lived there until his death in 2008.
The footballer, who also became known as the "fifth Beatle," lived at number 16 Burren Way until he was 15, when he moved to play for Manchester United.
The house has been turned into tourist accommodation by a non-profit organisation.
"The model we have at the moment, we think, maintains something of the heritage and the culture and the history of this particular building," Maurice Kinkead from the East Belfast Partnership said.
"It allows people to come in and see it and we think it's very sustainable and local residents, the local community, and the family - which is very important to us - seem very happy with that."
Best's bedroom has been decorated as it would have been when he lived there through the 1950s and 1960s.
There are numerous family photographs on the walls, including one of Best and his mother as well as one of him outside the house with family members. (ANI)
