About the property

Self Catering Apartment in Helen's Bay, Co. Down, Ireland - Very Peaceful Location, 5 Minutes From The Beach And Close To All Transport Links

Helens Bay is a little village 8 miles from the heart of Belfast and 4 miles from Bangor which is a bustling seaside town at the mouth of Belfast Lough. The two towns are connected by the coastal path which runs through Helens Bay and which is a popular path for walkers and cyclists. There is also a rail connection and trains run regularly every half hour throughout the day. The train stops at the Belfast City Airport and also close to the Titanic Quarter.

About Diana Porter

James and I live in Northern Ireland. We have 2 grown up children. I adore cooking and am a caterer by profession. We run a small bed and breakfast here in Northern Ireland and love to use local produce as much as possible. We have 2 self catering properties in France. One is in Brittany and one is just south of the Loire so we love to visit France and search for new recipe ideas and try all the delicious food and wine there.

Diana Porter purchased this apartment in 1970

Why Diana Porter chose Helen's Bay

We moved here shortly after we were married and as our family expanded so did the house. Now the family have all moved away so we decided to let others share our home and enjoy the area as well.

Northern Ireland is enjoying quite a revival and there are heaps of things to do and see from the Giants Causeway in the north to the Mountains of Mourne in the south. What is so great about Northern ireland is the fact that nowhere is too far away. We are also close to the railway line so you can just jump on the train and even be in Dublin in 2 hours.

There are 7 golf courses within 5 miles of the property and the coastal path is delightful for the walkers and cyclists. We have a couple of bicycles here for those who want to go for a little exercise.

Close to Belfast, it's the ideal location

What makes this apartment unique

The new Titanic Experience opened in 2012 and it is well worth a visit, again it is only a train ride away.
