Belfast Chat / Re: Moving to Belfast
« Last post by jjmack on January 15, 2019, 06:03:46 AM »
Hello everyone, first post on the forum-hope you are all well.
I need some advice, our family of 5 (with 3 kids aged 17/15/12) is planning to move to Belfast by the end of summer 2019: we would like to rent in a family area close to grammar schools and I was looking for tips. We would initially rent and when we are settled start looking around to buy.  I am told that the Holywood and Stormont areas are very nice and close to city centre (the kids are not hugely pro moving but I'm sure I can sway them if I promise entertainment on our doorstep and public transport for their independence!).  We currently live in rural Kent, my husband is from Enniskillen and I'm Italian, so a good mix :)
Thank you everyone in advance for your input, greatly appreciated x

Certainly Holywood  would fit the bill. However, I would steer well clear of Belfast. Not nice.  ::)

Remember those buildings very well. Sad to see their demise but that's progress.
Hope all is well with you Rep.

Can you speak Spanish/Spainnis. ? I'm not a fan of facebook, and for some unknown reason it seems to think at the moment that I'm Spanish,... yesterday it was Hindi. ! :)

Perhaps you might have better luck with it.   Ah, just got it to speak English.  :)

"An old photo of St. Teresa's looking down the Glen Road."

"On the right is the land that would become Coolnasilla (Cúil na Saileach, 'Corner of the Sallow trees'). In the foreground on the left, at the opening to St. Teresa's Primary School, was a river that flowed under the road and emerged in a rich meadow where bluebells lined its banks the whole way down to the main country (Andersonstown) road, marking out the line of the future Bearnagh Drive.

Looking for any photos of Woodstock street - my father (Eddie Eccles) had a  shop at the corner of Woodstock Street and Thompson Street until about 1972.
Would love to turn something up!
