    N.I members... advice please!

    Hi Lads,

    I'm from Dublin, living in London, about to move to the North for a job in Belfast Int Airport. I'm trying to figure out areas to live while avoiding any of the outdated aggro up their.

    Geographically the ideal areas would be Lurgan, Craigavon, Portadown, as they're close enough to the airport but also handy enough to get on the road to Dublin when heading home for a few days.

    Are these areas tense or ok, any suggestions of other relaxed or neutral areas?

    Appreciate any input, thanks!

    Here's a pic of my GS for good measure.

    Don't know about aggro, but I can tell you that neither Lurgan or Craigavon will win any prizes for beauty...

    I'm open to suggestions, not keen on living in built up areas or towns.

    I would rather be out a little bit but just trying to get an idea of which towns are dodgy in the event that I do have to settle for a place in an estate or town.

    Hi there

    the above 3 areas are all ok places after all lots of people live there perfectly well.

    Blackskull area a bit more rural and close to the A1 for comute to dublin and belfast and airport
    or Dromore is a quiet village,, just off the A1 carriage way as well.
    but the only issue that you will have to deal with every morning that you go to work is the road from Moira to the airport
    is slow in the morning with traffic.

    Have a look at the Crumlin area it is still easy to get to the A1 carriageway from there and you wont have so much of a
    drive every morning to the airport. and its easyier to get to the glens off antrim for a sunday bike run.

    cheers Davey

    Crumlin

    Just moved to Crumlin from Limerick. Or more correctly, in the process of moving, so on the road every other week. Easy connection to Dublin, 10 mins to Belfast International Airport. Chinese, Indian, kebab house, chippers, couple of pubs/steakhouses, mega Tesco.
    This should give you an idea of what's available.

    If i were you i would check out the Templepatrick area. 2 mins from the airport and also handy for getting the bus into Belfast when you decide to go on the piss.

    Definitely classier than Crumlin which is a bit depressing
