There are especially a lot of people living in Belfast who work in office and administrative support (14.51%), food service (8.29%) and teaching (8.29%).
Setting & Lifestyle
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy.

If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
As is often the case in a small town, Belfast doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
