Bird's eye view

You couldn’t find a more peaceful spot!

Lakeside Manor is beautifully situated on four acres overlooking Willis Lake. Located in the quiet and much sought after residential suburbs of south Belfast, the home sits back from the main road, creating a peaceful environment.

Lakeside Manor is only four miles away from Belfast City Centre. With a bus stop across the street from Lakeside Manor, in just 20 minutes you can be on the bus and in the city! City buses pass through roughly four times an hour.

For beautiful countryside, you don’t have to go very far. The boundary of Lagan Valley Regional Park is within a quarter mile from Lakeside Manor. The Regional Park also gives easy access to the Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park and Barnett’s Demesne, all within a mile of Lakeside. These parks offer many opportunities for jogging and walking. The Lagan “towpath” is an ideal cycling route and quiet walking path.

Inside Lakeside Manor, the facilities are extensive enough to meet everyone’s needs. Lakeside has a large library which is also used as a lecture room. There is a sun room with comfy couches and a big-screen TV, and the dining room provides space at the table for everyone.

Lewis room for quiet study and reflection.

Staff accommodations are located on the ground floor. Students reside on the middle floor in nine unique bedrooms with a different number of beds in each room. All bedrooms boast beautiful views and bonuses with a sink and mirror as well. The laundry room with two washing machines and two tumble dryers is accessible to all for use.
