Mini guide to Bangor

     

Located on the east coast of Northern Ireland not far from the city of Belfast, Bangor is one of the country's foremost tourist destinations, offering an array of family attractions and activities. Bangor has excellent sporting facilities and is easy to get to with an airport and ferry terminal situated nearby.

Bangor's biggest visitor attraction in the summer months is Ballyholme Beach, which runs all the way from Seacliff road to Ballymacormick Point and is ideal for bathing, walking and any number of water sports; while the Pickie Fun Park with its multitude of family facilities including swan boats, go carts and amusement arcades, provides an alternative to the beach.

Perhaps Bangor's most striking feature is the Bangor Marina, where numerous colourful vessels can be seen coming and going, while the 6th century Bangor Abbey in the town centre is a must-see attraction for its memorial stone to the ship's surgeon who died in the tragic sinking of the Titanic. The nearby Heritage Centre is also worth a look and showcases Bangor's history, while Ward Park is great for the kids.

Bangor has a few excellent shopping centres, including Bloomfields and Springhill on the outskirts of town, while the Flagship Shopping Centre provides more central shopping in the town centre. You will also find a large number of independent local stores as well as dozens of cafés, restaurants and pubs, five nightclubs and a seven-screen cinema.

Try walking along the lovely coastal path that runs from Bangor to Crawfordsburn and Helens Bay; Crawfordsburn Country Park is well worth spending some additional time at. Belfast itself has a picturesque waterfront and some grand Victorian architecture and outstanding museums.

The A2 leads directly to Bangor from Belfast City Airport and trains depart from here to Bangor Down West and Bangor Down stations. Translink buses run from Belfast International Airport to Bangor via Belfast, while Ulsterbus and Irish Rail have regular services from Dublin to Belfast, from where buses and trains depart for Bangor. Sea ferries run from the Isle of Man, Liverpool and Troon in Scotland to Belfast and the nearest air terminal is at Belfast City Airport.
