The local area guide to living in Carryduff
A historic small town to the south of Belfast, Carryduff offers a range of modern amenities and a very convenient location. It’s just six miles outside of Belfast’s city centre, which makes it a hit with commuters. The town experienced rapid growth in the 1960s, and has retained its mainly residential developments from this era. However, the settlement has been here for far longer, dating back at least to the early 1600s. The name Carryduff is derived from the Irish Ceathrú Aodha Dhuibh. This translates to ‘Black Hugh’s quarter’.
Residents can take advantage not only of close proximity to central Belfast, but also of local schools, churches, green spaces, and shops. The town has twice been deemed the ‘Best Kept Small Town’ by the Northern Ireland Amenity Council. It falls under the jurisdiction of the Lisburn and Castlereagh District Council.

This combined what was formerly Newtownbreda High and Knockbreda High. Another option in the area is Saintfield High School in the village of Saintfield. In a recent ETI inspection, Saintfield was noted for the ‘exemplary behaviour’ of its students and its ‘very good’ academic standards.
One of Carryduff’s greatest strengths is its historically central location. The settlement was founded at the location where six roads intersected, and today it is located at the junction of the A24, A7, and B178. The A24 travels northward to Belfast, which is a mere 15 minute drive away. It travels southward to Ballynahinch and Newcastle, and also splits off into the A7 at Carryduff on to Downpatrick. The B178 takes motorists on to the Ards Peninsula in one direction and Hillsborough in the other.
It’s perhaps easiest to travel around the Carryduff region by car due to abundant roads in the area.
