Fancy living the Best way?

Fancy staying in George Best’s house in Belfast for €154 a night?

The Manchester United legend’s home in Belfast has been renovated by Landmark East, a non-profit property regeneration charity, and has been put up for rent to Best fans.

The East Belfast charity bought 16 Burren Way in 2011 and restored it to look exactly like it was when Best was growing up.

The Bests moved into the house when he was aged two-and-a-half in Jan 1949, and George lived there until he signed for United. When Best became the original soccer superstar, the house was often surrounded by the press hoping to get a glimpse of him.

Now fans can stay in the house for up to two weeks.

“After an extensive renovation project, the family home is now available to rent for one to 14 nights for visitors to experience life for George when he left to join Manchester United in 1963,” the welcoming message to the house’s website (www.georgebesthouse.com) states.

“The house has three bedrooms — one double, one twin and one single [George’s room]. It is filled with interesting mementoes, stories and images about George’s life, his family and his football career.”
