Stormont is home to weekly 5k runs held on Saturday mornings, as well as providing the Civil Service Sports Club with football pitches, rugby pitches, 3G football and hockey pitches, cricket squares and an indoor gym. One of the most popular attractions within the grounds is the Children's Play Park, which opens throughout the day, every day. The luxury 4-star Stormont Hotel lies on the opposite side of the road from the Estate and looks directly up at the Parliament Buildings. The Hotel enjoys great success and business throughout the year, as its quality guest suites, stylish 'La Scala' restaurant and fabulous location combined cannot be beaten in East Belfast. Knock Golf Club is a ten to fifteen-minute walk away, and the George Best Belfast City Airport is only a few miles down the motorway. Stormont is a short commute from the city centre, an attribute that is forever popular with residents who work in town. Reliable and regular bus services travel to and from the city centre from early morning to late evening - just short of 14 hours daily service.
There is no shortage of local schools, both primary and secondary to the residents of Stormont. Nearby, there are some of Northern Ireland's leading primary, grammar and secondary schools.
Stormont is only a few minutes away from the lively and thriving Ballyhackamore. Ballyhackamore provides a vast selection of Spanish, Indian, Chinese, Italian and English Cuisine. Alongside these, Horatio Todd's restaurant and bar has an extensive client base and is the 'go-to' venue on a Friday and Saturday night.
