He has also been ordered to sign on the sex offenders register for life.
Speaking after the hearing, investigating officer DC Gavin McGrath said:
"There are no excuses or grey areas when it comes to rape − if someone says no, then it is a criminal offence and our officers are have a proven track record for bringing offenders to justice.
"As this case clearly demonstrates, we take all reports of sexual assaults extremely seriously and meticulously investigate every crime.
