Hi all,

I hope you are doing fine and enjoying the European Summer.
I may move to Belfast and I would like to know more about the city, transportation, night life and prices... If any of you wants to help, I need anything someone willing to live there for a while should know.

Thanks in advance,
Elisa

Hi Elisa

Ive lived in Belfast for more years than l care to admit too!

If you could be more specific with your questions that would be great - prices for what exactly, what kind of night life.

Belfast is a friendly city - theres a lot of re-generation and construction going on even with the current threat of recession and this "credit crunch". Its a city therefore prices arent that cheap. Transportation - well there are bus links in and around the city - metro bus service which is quite frequent - for out lying areas the transportation links are not so great.

Night life - theres an abundence of bars pubs clubs restaurants cinemas and so on. It depends what kind of scene you are into but in reality l doubt it will disappoint there should be something for everyone.

If you send me through a few more specific questions l can most definately try and help!

Cheers

Heather

Belfast is a really friendly city! I was just thinking, as I was walking down the sidewalk at lunch and dodging the hoggers who don't budge an inch, that in Belfast people not only moved to give you room--they smiled too!
