Carryduff is home to just under 7,000 residents, and holds a long-standing reputation of being a close-knit, family-orientated community. Carryduff has proudly been voted twice as the 'Best Kept Small Town' in Northern Ireland. Carryduff has been the ideal location for many businessmen and women throughout the years due to its quality public transport service. Carryduff is a practical commuter village, which although is extremely convenient, is also removed from the busy city centre.
There is no shortage of local schools, both primary and secondary to the residents of Carryduff. Nearby, there are some of Northern Ireland's leading primary, grammar and secondary schools.
The local Rockmount Golf Club and Woodlawn Garden & Lifestyle Centre also have their own bar/restaurant and cafe respectively.
