Situated 12 miles from the city of Belfast, the picturesque city of Bangor has a population of around 75,000 and sits on the shores of Belfast Lough. In its heyday, Bangor was a thriving seaside town but has moved with the times to become a vibrant commuter city which boasts a beautiful 300 berth marina holding the only 5 star status in the whole of Ireland and can offer 10 miles of fabulous coastal paths for the walking enthusiast, as well as a wide range of hotel, guest house and self-catering accommodation.
With 7 golf courses in the vicinity, and one of the world's top ten golf courses, Royal County Down, only an hour away, the town offers a great range of leisure facilities for those wishing to holiday in the town or to use as a base to explore the surrounding countryside and, indeed, the Province of Northern Ireland.
Come and spend some time and enjoy a really relaxing break in a beautiful part of Northern Ireland - you won't regret it! Or if music is your forte, why not visit or compete in the Bangor International Choral Festival which takes place annually in Bangor where you will be guaranteed a warm Irish welcome - visit the website for details - www.bicf.co.uk
