Living in Northern Ireland

“I’ve always maintained that Northern Ireland is the world’s best kept secret, both in the character of its people and its scenery,” – Liam Neeson

Northern Ireland is a friendly and sociable country with a lot to offer. In fact, in recent years the Office of National Statistics rated Northern Ireland as the happiest place to live in the UK!

That’s down to many factors including the beautiful scenery, low cost of living and great employment opportunities as well as our optimistic view on life, all of which make it a fantastic place to live. There is an abundance of public parks, as well as countless beaches and forests. Northern Ireland’s capital city is currently thriving in an era of tremendous regeneration with an abundance of award winning restaurants and bars across the city as well as tourist attractions including the recently constructed Titanic Belfast Centre, located within the up and coming Titanic Quarter area.

Within a short drive from Belfast you are nearby to any number of attractions, from the legendary Giant’s Causeway to the scenic Lakelands of Fermanagh, the walled city of Derry, the stunningly beautiful Mountains of Mourne, the golden beaches of the North coast and the green glens of Antrim.

Explore the great outdoors and you will find dramatic coastlines, castles, mountains, lakes, some of the best golf courses in the world, superb fishing, water sports, walking trails, scenic drives and historical landmarks.
