Living in Bangor

A seaside resort on Belfast’s doorstep, the beauty of Bangor is immediately evident upon arrival. The bustling town boasts an array of places to explore, making it a popular destination with locals, day-trippers and tourists alike.

The picturesque marina is the backdrop to Bangor Castle, the Abbey, North Down Museum and the ever-popular Pickie Funpark, while outdoor activities such as sailing, golfing and karting truly offers something for everyone.

Renowned as a town steeped in natural history, Bangor has seen plenty of talent hail from here in recent years, paving the way for a new story to tell. In 1858, author Charles Dickens sought solace during a lecture tour by taking a swim at Ballyholme Beach.

Those living in Bangor benefit from a perfect fusion of independent retailers and high street stores on their doorstep. Shoppers flock to the Bloomfield Centre and Springhill Shopping centre, while those who seek something a little bit different have their needs met thanks to a collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques. A wealth of eateries, pubs and entertainment venues cater to your every whim.

Who is Bangor ideal for?

An area of prime development, Bangor presents a variety of new-build homes in highly sought after areas. Those living in Bangor enjoy close proximity to Belfast which makes it a firm choice for families who commute to the city by day and soak up the idyllic location of Bangor by night.

The town also offers a variety of mansion style homes, apartments, semi-detached and detached houses, meaning living needs are easily met.

What to do in Bangor?

Bangor Castle: A great starting point for soaking up Bangor’s heritage, the castle was built in 1852 for the Ward Family. Nowadays, it’s home to Ards and North Down Borough Council, with the mansion’s spectacular grand salon used as the council chamber. Situated in the grounds of Castle Park and just a short walk from Bangor Castle Walled Garden, spend a few hours here and revel in its beauty.

Bangor Abbey: Evolved in line with history, the church was subjected to Viking attacks, and restored to its former beauty in the 1600s. The churchyard houses an array of fascinating gravestones, including a memorial to the assistant surgeon of the Titanic, John Edward Simpson.

Pickie Funpark: Down by the marina resides the institution of Pickie Funpark. Offering the opportunity for a fun-filled family day out, the park boasts many activities including the Pickie Puffer Steam Train, pedal boat swans and an 18-hole nautical inspired mini-golf course.

Bangor Marina: Recognised as one of Ireland’s largest marinas, Bangor Marina was awarded Blue Flag status. The McKee Clock and Sunken Gardens can also be found here, while the maritime-inspired Sea Bangor Festival is a highly anticipated summer event.

North Down Museum: Uncover the history of Bangor in its dedicated museum. Travel from the Bronze Age to the present day or enjoy a free exhibition hosted throughout the year.

Clandeboye Estate: The historic Clandeboye Estate and Courtyard is one of just a handful in Northern Ireland, which is still under the ownership of the original family. Spread across 2000 acres, discover private gardens or check out a regular event.

Bangor Golf Club: Quoted by Rory McIlroy as “one of my favourite parkland courses in Ireland”, Bangor Golf Club is located a stone’s throw away from the town centre. Charming and challenging in equal measures, the 18-hole championship course boasts exquisite views.
