The Borough of Newtownabbey has the sixth largest population of the councils in Northern Ireland with an estimated population of 81,690 residents.
Lying a short distance north of the city of Belfast on the shores of Belfast Lough, Newtownabbey is a tourist gateway to the beautiful nine Glens of Antrim and the magnificent Antrim coast.
With its prominent suburban position at the heart of Northern Ireland’s business belt, the area enjoys fast access to Northern Ireland’s two main airports and ports by means of its first-class road and rail infrastructure.
The strategic aim of the Council is to promote and improve Newtownabbey for the benefit of all who live in, work in and visit the Borough.
We have a fantastic range of local attractions and amenities which we want everyone to be able to enjoy.
Disabled people have told us of the value of reliable access information about places they visit in their everyday lives.
We are delighted to support the DisabledGo – Newtownabbey online guide which should greatly assist people in making informed choices about where to visit.
