I'm looking for recommendations of where to live, either in belfast or a commuter town, with a good secondary school nearby. We're catholic and moving up from the south. I'm finding it very difficult to find advice on schools from the internet.
Also does anybody have any advice about living/commuting from banbridge? Downpatrick? Dunno, just trying to work out options.
Also a lot of advice seems to be centred on living in stranmillis / malone rd., but I can't figure out if there's any secondary schools near there...
Thanks a lot.
Titanic quarter I am guessing citgroup or one of those other IT companies in that area.
I used to work there. Thing to watch out for is you are travelling in from ravenhill road or ormeau road direction for work is the traffic bottle necks there which is a nightmare at 8:30 to about 9am, If you are coming in on the M3 you are sweet.
I have lived in 3 locations in Belfast, Ravenhill, Lisburn Road and am now out in newtownabby /Glengormley direction some people rule out the north of Belfast but if you have a car it is easy and the bus will have you in town in 30 mins from these areas.
