“We spent 2 weeks at Natalie & Simon's Home in Bangor this summer. We had a wonderful time there. Their house is well located, nicely decorated and very comfortable. Lots of toys for the kids, who particularly enjoyed the trampoline. Lots of DVD's, books, CD's, etc. Communication with Simon was very easy. We booked the flights 6 months before our stay, and everything went well. We also exchanged cars and Simon, who accidentally did a small dent on the boot, got the car repaired to a garage straight away, so my car was actually nicer than before :) Natalie and Simon left us plenty of documentation about the region. Northern Ireland is beautiful, very child friendly destination. Lots of parks and beautiful landscapes. We found our home very tidy and clean when we came back. We highly recommend a swap with this very nice family in this beautiful country.”

Where is it?
Our house is located in a cul-de-sac in the suburbs of Bangor, a seaside town on the southern side of Belfast Lough. In 2007, and again in 2008, the town was voted by Ulster Television viewers as the most desirable place to live in Northern Ireland.
Bangor is situated 13 miles (22 km) east from Belfast and just 30 minutes by train or bus with Belfast City Airport even closer. The local train station (to Belfast and beyond) is less than 10 minutes walk.
Bangor has plenty of local restaurants (some where kids eat free), pubs, golf courses, tennis, fishing trips, a cinema and brand new olympic size swimming pool (with water park,slides and wave machine for kids). A large Tesco supermarket is just two minutes drive away from our home.
The North Down Coastal Path with fantastic views of the ocean is just 10 minutes walk away - it stretches for miles along the coast and is far removed from traffic - perfect for walking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHblTN_yNoY
Pickie Fun Park in the heart of Bangor is a great place for families. Bangor Marina is one of the largest in Ireland.
The Titanic Visitor Centre (winner of world's best tourist attraction 2016), Belfast City Centre, The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Mount Stewart (National Trust), Scrabo Tower are all within 30 minutes drive. Within 90 minutes driving distance are the world famous Giant's Causeway, The Mourne Mountains and The Glens of Antrim. World famous 'Game of Thrones' TV Series is also filmed here - tours are available. These are just some of the many attractions for you to explore.
Lonely Planet has voted Belfast and the Causeway Coast the top destination to visit in the world for 2018! In 2011 The National Geographic Traveller voted Belfast one of the top 10 places to visit in the world. Also Trip Advisor 2011 said Belfast is the best value UK city. Lonely Planet 2012 said 'Get here early and enjoy it before the rest of the world arrives'. In 2013 Lonely Planet ranked Northern Ireland in the Top 10 destinations to visit in Europe.
Dublin is just a two hour train journey away.
Please note the three closest major airports are George Best Belfast City Airport, Belfast International Airport and Dublin Airport. Dublin Airport is just 100 minutes on the motorway.
Whether you want to explore the scenic parts of Ireland or enjoy the buzz of Belfast is entirely up to you. We're in a perfect location for both.
