    • Titanic experience

      by crazymum Online Now Apr 6, 2015 at 1:53 AM

      In blunt terms is the Titanic Experience worth it - I know that this is a subjective question and is there parking nearby. How long should I allow for the visit. What exactly is involved with the boat trip. The website leaves a lot to be desired. So often these historical attractions are not worth their money - being on a tight budget would the money be better spent on a pub meal?

      Many thanx

      I want to travel to London from Belfast. I hold Irish passport so I do not need visa to UK. But my parents are planning to travel with me too. They hold Non-EU passport. My parents are currently with me in Ireland. We plan to travel to London from Belfast to avoid passport control. Does anyone knows is there passport control or check travelling from Belfast to London and vice-versa?

      Thanks.

      Hello
      We will be sailing on the Stena Line arriving 6:30AM on Saturday September 15 from Liverpool We will be catching the 6:10 PM train to Dublin. We would really like to do the following things but I'm not sure how to get everywhere.
      1. What can we do at 6:30 AM in Belfast? Maybe St George's Market?
      2. Should we keep out luggage at the train station we depart from for Dublin? Any other options?
      3. We would like to see Ulster Folk Park, Transport Museum and the Titanic displays. As well as The dock & pump house.
      4. We would like to see the political Murals Black taxi tour?
      5. a little shopping and a good breakfast and lunch
      We have just the day and I would like to make the most of it. I'm not sure if we should do the hop on/off bus that seemed to go to a lot of places (could not figure out if it went to the Ulster American Folk Park, it didn't seem to) Is this doable? Any idea suggestions would be most welcome! Especially transportation ideas!

    • Driving to Belfast/Northern Ireland then west toward Shannon Airport

      by Kathiebronx Online Now Mar 11, 2012 at 11:26 PM

      My daughter and I would appreciate your help. We will be spending 3 days in Dublin, then renting a car heading for Northern Ireland. We would like to spend 2 or 3 days or even 4 days in and around Belfast and other towns in Northern Ireland, seeing all the wonderful sights of interest., sometimes using public transportation, sometimes driving on our own.

      After leaving Northern Ireland we will drive back south seeing what we missed on the first go around, then driving west taking in all the towns and things to see heading towards Shannon Airport where we will leave to go back home to the U.S.

      What we really need help in is what towns to book hotels in so we can take advantage of what there is to see along the way. Ireland is a dream come true for me and I want to make the most of my dream, so whatever you can tell us would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

      Hi all,

      I have 1 day in the North and would like your opinion on where I should go. I will be sleeping in Belfast but would it be better to stay in Belfast and look around or spend the day going to the Giants Causeway and Derry?

      I will be spending 3 days in the South also if that helps your decision? I am leaning towards Causeway and Derry but can be convinced otherwise if Belfast has more to offer...

      Thanks

      Getting around in Belfast

      by schmechi Online Now Apr 20, 2011 at 6:17 AM

      We'll make a daytrip to Belfast and want to visit most of its sights... Unfortunately it seems that they are alloted all over the city, so I'm wondering how to get around in the city. I know www.translink.co.uk but nevertheless I'm a little bit lost...

      I plan to start at City hall after arriving central station (or Europe bus centre). After that I want to walk to St Anne’s Cathedral and head for West Belfast seeing the peace lines and the murals of Falls Rd and Shankill Rd. Is this doable afoot? Or is it a too long march? Would a detour to the Queen's university and/or Laganside be also possible?

      Could you give me any hints to shorten the march by using the public metro service? Could you even appoint the correct (bus?) routes and stations near the specific sights? I know translink.co.uk/Documents/PD... but I can't relate the stations to specific sights, additionally the city centre is not pictured...

      Additionally I'd be intrested in visiting Stormont parliament. Is there any public bus connection?

      Or would you discourage myself from walking and using public busses? Should I use taxis (black cab tours?) or even the hop-on/hop-off sightseeing bus (http://www.city-sightseeing.com/).

      Thanx in advance!
