What Renters Like and Dislike About Belfast

I enjoy the mix of old and new buildings and businesses. We have family run restaurants and also bigger franchises like DD's and McDonald's. I love taking my kids to our local parks.

I like living here because it is a safe place for my children and close to my parents and brother. I like that it's close to downtown and cute little touristy shops. I enjoy being really close to a place called Bowen's where they have the best buffalo wings in town.
