Over the last couple of decades Belfast has undergone a dramatic transformation and nowhere has this been more evident than in its bustling centre. Typified by the regeneration of the Cathedral Quarter, whose charming cobblestoned streets and Victorian warehouses now host some of the city’s most ebullient nightlife and finest restaurants, the changes have included spectacular new shopping centres, apartment blocks, music venues and clubs.
Streets of Edwardian and Victorian buildings radiating off Donegall Square offer good housing opportunities while apartment living is becoming more fashionable. A little further afield, good value housing is available on the fringes of the centre. The final stage in the Belfast renaissance will be to build up a thriving community in the centre, which can still feel underused in the evenings. So, why not join this growing trend while you still can.
