Sandy Row is home to many local and international businesses. From traditional high street shops to modern office suits and technology based businesses Sandy Row is a great place to set up shop. With the new Belfast Transport Hub and major hotels and hostels Sandy Row is ripe for business investment.


Social Enterprise Hub

A consortium led by our member organisation BSCR has been leading the way in developing community & social enterprise aspirations over the last few years. As a community we are keen to develop this aspect of socially conscious business within our community. Visit South Belfast Enterprise Hub here


South Belfast Social Enterprise Hub
Belfast Transport Hub

A major capital investment into the current Translink Train & Bus Station incorporating the Dublin Train will see this area become central to the regions transport network. Sandy Row Community Forum has been working closely with Design Team to ensure that the community will benefit significantly from the projected 18million passenger movements each year through the Hub.

Local Business 

The potential for the regeneration of Sandy Row lies within the development of the current commercial core of the area through the improvement of the physical buildings and the increased uptake of vacant premises for either office space or retail development. The variety of premises means that the area can accommodate varied business types whether it be niche retailers, industrial factories or office based consultancy/support. 

Businesses can take advantage of the cost effective premises, the proximity to Belfast City Centre and transport links as well as the regular influx of tourists to the Holiday Inn and International Youth Hostel which both lie in the heart of our area. The Youth Hostel alone sees 40,000 people stay each calendar year. Grants maybe available for this as Sandy Row is designated a Neighbourhood Renewal Area. The area also has a number of key development opportunities capitalising on the location which focus on the hospitality/ tourism growing economies eg Creative Industries & Business Services

There is wide variety of shops within the area that can cater for your every need. Recent customer surveys have shown that in Sandy Row the ‘personal service’ you receive is held in the highest regard.
