Travel and Accommodation


There are several ways of arriving into Belfast, the quickest and easiest of which is by plane into either Belfast City Airport (which is closer to the city centre) or Belfast International Airport. There is a range of low cost flights on multiple airlines (BA, Aer Lingus, Flybe, Easyjet, Ryanair etc.) from all UK cities.

Alternatively, delegates flying into Dublin can get on the AirCoach which will take them from the airport to Belfast in just over 90 minutes. This is €24 return, and drops off in Glengall Street just by the Grand Opera House.

For delegates coming to the city by ferry – they can use the Translink operate Metro service (96) which will take them into the city centre, this is £2 single. A taxi-share scheme is in operation to the city centre offered by black public hire taxis just outside the terminal building.
