Bangor is my home town, and it is a great town, i love it and can't see myself living anywhere else in later life.
Bangor is a seaside town situated in Co.Down in Northern Irealnd. It is a busy town about 13 miles from the capital of Belfast. It is famous for its large marina housing many many boats
It has two main streets. Main street containing a lot of the big high street shops and then High street which has a lot of bars, pubs and takeaways.
Bangor has everything anyone needs, it has a a multiplex cinenma, multiple parks including ward park which is very scenic. It has a college named SERC and a lot of high schools, grammar schools and primary schools. It has numerous churches of several denominations.
Bangor FC is a successful footbal team situated currently in the middle of the Northern Irish premier league table and play at the football stadium Clandeboye Park.
I would recommend Bangor the most to the younger generation, especially young couples.
It really is a brilliant wee seaside town :) and has a special place in my heart.
Bangor is a very 'nice' place in the very 'nice' county of Down. The people there are very 'nice' and there are lots of 'nice' things to do. Get the picture? Bangor is one of those places where everyone knows everyone and you can't get away with doing anything before the whole town knows about it. Fortunately the people are great and will extend a warm and genuinely interested welcome to everyone. Even the local down and outs are eventually adopted by some kind soul. If you are thinking of visiting there are many different types of accomodation available from the many B&Bs based in the roads round Bangor Bay to the new hotels right on the sea front. The local council have worked hard to bring visitors back into the area and the sea front underwent a major transformation about 10 years ago. The bay is now an impressive marina and visitors can stroll along the promenade and even have a boat ride or hire a 'swan'pedalo. For those interested in a more traditional Irish type holiday experience you can visit Bangor Heritgae Centre in Castle Park which will show you how Bangor started life as a monastry, in fact it used to be one of the religious centres of Europe. You can then see how Bangor changed over the many centuries into the town it is today. Bangor has many highlights. For great ice cream go to Mauds ice cream shop on High Street which sells the legendary Pooh Bear icecream (to die for). There are several clubs/bars which are well worth a visit. They keep changing name but try the bottom of High Street and round the corner on the sea front. The town has reasonable shops, but just on the outskirts of Bangor is a reasonable shopping centre called Bloomfields with a M&S, Next, Body Shop and the like. All in all it is a 'nice' harmless place, great for a visit. It has a bit of everything. You can go there and have a stroll by the sea. You can go and spend your ti
me there in clubs. You can go and shop. It's this variety that means that even though Bangor is only really just 'nice' people keep coming back. If you go have a great time!
well everyone has written an review on Belfast so i thought i'd add my thougs to another place in ireland, Bangor! i was born and bread in ireland and love the country. I live in a town called Bangor, about 11 miles from Belfast, its a beautiful coastal town on the east coast of northern Ireland. There is never a shortage of friendly faces over here everyone just has a friendly attitude and we're never one to stay quiet when we meet a stranger. my boyfriend came over for his first time and loved it he said that the people arevery friendly and he has come back a number of times since. I highly recommend that u come here and experience it for urself. no matter ur age.
