Saintfield (historically called Tawnaghneeve, from Irish: Tamhnaigh Naomh meaning "holy field/saint's field") is a village in County Down, Northern Ireland, situated roughly halfway between Belfast and Downpatrick on the A7 road. It had a population of 2,959 people in the 2001 Census. The village proper is considered predominantly a middle or upper-middle class town and of both Catholic and Protestant tradition. A proliferation of large housing developments is found here, but it is most commonly known for its antique shops attesting to the town's affluence and higher-than-average GDP per household, compared to the surrounding areas. Saintfield's population is largely made up of commuters, working in both south and central Belfast, which is approximately eleven miles away. The population of the surrounding countryside is predominantly involved in agriculture.
Running east to west across the A7 is the B6 road, and to the west of this crossroads is Main Street, which takes one towards Lisburn and Ballynahinch, and to the east is Station Road which takes one towards Killyleagh.
