Getting to Belfast
Belfast can be accessed by two local airports as well as from Dublin airport only which is only two hours away.
George Belfast Belfast City Airport
Belfast City Airport is just three miles from Belfast City Centre. The Translink Airport Express 600 bus service runs between the airport and Belfast City Centre.
Belfast International Airport
Belfast International Airport is a 30-minute drive from Belfast City Centre. The Translink Airport Express 300 bus service runs between the airport and Belfast City Centre.
Dublin Airport is a two hour drive from Belfast. There are hourly bus services from the airport with two services: the X1 bus service (provided jointly by Translink and Bus Eireann) and a non-stop express service (provided by Aircoach)
If you choose to hire a car, the M1 Motorway is well signposted for Belfast; this is a toll road and there is one toll plaza approximately 31 km from Dublin Airport. Continue on this motorway signposted for Belfast.
Just after passing the city of Newry, the road becomes a dual carriageway (A1) and motorway regulations fall away. At the Sprucefield roundabout (approximately 137 km from Dublin Airport) the A1 joins the M1 motorway (signposted The North, Belfast).
Once within the Greater Belfast area, the signs will display as City Centre. At Grosvenor Road Junction (approximately 152 km from Dublin) leave the motorway and follow signs for City Centre onto the B38.
