Northern Ireland has an amazing variety of landscapes, cultural attractions and leisure opportunities as well as an intriguing – and famously complex – history, all contained in an area the size of Yorkshire or Connecticut. Within a few hours of Belfast, one can visit pre-Christian burial sites, famous cathedrals and coastlines of legend.
The Times of London has named Belfast as one of its top 12 world travel destinations, its Impressive world-class developments adding immeasurably to the city’s image. The mighty £100 million Odyssey complex, the Waterfront Hall, new galleries, new public and private developments – they are all part of the transformation and must be seen to be believed.
Home to the world’s oldest aircraft production company and the city where the Titanic, the tractor and the tyre were created, Belfast may now be more aptly described at the city of telecoms, technology and trading.
University’s Halls of residence – Queen’s Elms – are
situated in pleasant parkland, in a quiet residential area on the south side of
the city. Being on a large site, well
away from the main road there is a spaciousness and
calmness which generates a feeling of being far from city life, even though
Queen’s Elms are less than two miles from the centre of
All bedrooms have full access to kitchen facilities. Each hall has a comfortable common room where delegates can relax. Bedrooms are serviced daily including weekends with bed linen, towels, soap, tea and coffee. On each floor visitors will find a kitchen/dinning area where tea and coffee making facilities are available. Fully equipped laundry facilities are provided in each hall.
