Getting to W5 is easy

We are part of Odyssey, Northern Ireland’s Landmark Millennium Project, based in the Abercorn Basin beside the River Lagan in Belfast. Upper floors of W5 have spectacular views of Belfast’s cityscape and far beyond.

The proximity of the shipyard and high-tech industries are symbolic of our close links with our industrial past and future.
