Stranmillis is a short distance away from the prestigious Russell Group Queen's University Belfast, which schools some of Northern Ireland's future industry leaders. With a close affiliation with St Mary's and Stranmillis teaching colleges and the Theological Union College, Queen's boasts a vast array of courses and subsequently homes a huge variety of students - the majority of whom could be found in Stranmillis.
Living up to its cultural reputation, Stranmillis is home to both the Ulster Museum and the Lyric Theatre - both of which have gone through major refurbishment in recent years. The Ulster Museum is located in the beautiful Botanical Gardens and features material from our local history right the way through to the Spanish Armada. Re-opening during its 80th anniversary in 2009, the museum is a must-see. Meanwhile, the Lyric Theatre reopened its brand new, award winning building in 2011 and is responsible for showcasing Northern Ireland's most talented actors, dancers and singers alike. Set in the heart of Stranmillis and overlooking the River Lagan, the Lyric Theatre provides great entertainment all year around for all the family.
There is no shortage of local schools, both primary and secondary to the residents of Stranmillis. Nearby, there are some of Northern Ireland's leading primary, grammar and secondary schools.
Consisting mainly of terraced, semi detached and smaller detached properties, Stranmillis is located in amongst a number of restaurants, cafes and bars. This is a major factor as to why Stranmillis remains full of life and character.
