A Warm Welcome for all

With a population of 1.8 million we are one of Europe’s youngest and fastest growing regions with 55% of our population being under the age of 40. There is a lively social scene with fine restaurants, cinemas, theatres, galleries, arts and entertainment venues, leisure and sports centres and a variety of pubs and clubs. The Office of National Statistics recently rated Northern Ireland as the happiest place to live in the United Kingdom with Belfast, our capital city, being one of the safest cities, with a low crime rate.





The beautiful scenery, excellent job opportunities and low cost of living as well as our optimistic view on life makes Northern Ireland a wonderful place to live in. There is an abundance of public parks as well as countless beaches and forests. Our spectacular scenery spans from dramatic coastlines to lush countryside with mountains, rivers and lakes; we have many famous cultural attractions such as historical landmarks, castles, stately homes and gardens. No matter what your interests Northern Ireland offers a variety of activities and leisure opportunities including superb fishing, water sports, some of the best golf courses in the world, walking and cycling trails and scenic drives.
