Farset evolved from local communities in West and North Belfast striving to deal with the issues experienced in their daily lives. Farset has branched off in many directions offering a range of social and charitable initiatives in the areas of youth, health, training, employment and conflict resolution.
At the same time Farset endeavors to develop links and network with other communities in Belfast, Ireland, Europe (East and West in particular) and the rest of the World.
Farsetís latest project was completed early 2003. In response to local community needs for a neutral place for meetings, discussions and residential, the Board relentlessly pursue support and funding for such an establishment. With the assistance of funding from bodies such as International Fund for Ireland, Northern Ireland Tourist Board, Department of Social Development, Invest NI, Belfast Local Strategy Partnership Board and EU Programme for Peace and Reconciliation, Farset was built, equipped and staff. The facility, located on the interface on the Springfield Road, offers conference and meeting rooms, restaurants and accommodation at affordable prices.
After two years of trading, Farset is delighted with the success of the facility. The demand for conference and meeting places has been so intense that we have had to add additional conference spacer by dividing the dinning area with a partition. You can read the comments in our guest book indicating customer satisfaction with the provision of services.
Farset is also attracting tourists from all over the world as well as community groups and business people looking for a unique setting for their stay in Belfast. Local staff providing a friendly, welcoming service seems to be the key to the success of Farset.
