Travel

Belfast has an International Airport, linked to the city centre by a regular bus service running every half hour, as well as the George Best City Airport (from which you can take the train to Botanic Station; the station is called "Sydenham'' and "Botanic" is the third stop). A taxi from the City Airport to the Department costs about £7.

Belfast can also be conveniently reached by train (every two hours) from Dublin Connolly Station. There are many low fares from a number of locations in Europe to Dublin Airport , and there's a shuttle from the airport to the Main Bus Station (Busáras) near Connolly. There are also direct bus services from Dublin Airport to the City Centre of Belfast every half hour.

For those who plan to come on Saturday morning from Dublin with the 9:50 train (arrival in Belfast!), please take any of the frequent connecting trains from Belfast Central to Botanic Station (one stop only), turn left and walk the ten minutes down the Botanic Avenue to the Department.
