Dating in Newtownabbey: Superb suburb

Often rudely dismissed as being ‘just’ a suburb of Belfast, Newtownabbey does in fact deserve to be known as a popular and well-loved town in its own right. For inhabitants, the combination of its close proximity to the city and surrounding semi-rural areas means it is a diverse and enjoyable location in which to live. When it comes to dating in Newtownabbey, this makes the experience a thrilling prospect regardless of what type of date you go on. Here are some ideas to get you started!

Original date

Choosing an activity neither of you have previously done can be great for adding that extra sense of excitement. One you might not have considered before (for dating purposes or otherwise) is the Shuttersheep Photo Safari. Don’t worry, you’re not going to be getting up close and personal with any dangerous animals - this is in fact a photography school. You can enjoy one-on-one guidance from photographer Philip T Davis as he takes you around various locations on the Causeway Coast. This sounds like a great date idea; combining the enjoyment of getting out and about in your local surroundings and the chance to try something new!

Classic date

If you wish to wine and dine your date, there are many local restaurants which would be suitable. However for something a little extra special you might like to book a table for two at Oregano – one of the best and most romantic establishments in the area. Located in nearby Ballyrobert, this husband and wife-run restaurant is focused on fresh and local produce – just one factor which makes it a decidedly delicious date location.

Fun date

The zoo is one of those rare attractions that is suitable for all ages and for all occasions. Belfast Zoo is a fantastic example; with over 1,500 animals and 150 different species, you could while away the day here as you enjoy chilling out in the company of the animals – and your date. Situated on Cave Hill, the zoo also offers beautiful views overlooking Belfast Lough.
