      Hi guys, I'm heading to Londonderry for a 2 months. As I'm programmer working remotely i will have to bring my PC with me. As I'm in Czech Republic right now taking it on the plane is not an option. Do you have any idea how to ship it safely and in possible cheapest way?

    • How long till I can return to Ireland?

      Belfast Mar 22, 2016 at 5:21 PM

      I flew into Belfast to stay with my fiancé in Northern Ireland for 6 months, then flew home to the US out of Dublin as it was cheaper. I did not work while I was there but was supported my my fiancé and Dad. My fiancé is moving here to the US and I would like to fly back for 2 months to help him move. I've been home for 2 months. Will it be a problem getting back into Ireland through the Dublin airport as it's cheaper? Will customs frown on this kind of travel?

      Belfast 1 night stopover

      Belfast Mar 15, 2016 at 7:00 PM

      My husband and I have a stopover for a night in Belfast at the beginning of May.
      Arriving in Belfast at 9pm leaving at 11am.

      1) What good area should we stay in to be able to walk around at night and be able to feel the city/have a good drink?
      2) What can we visit? (I've seen the Titanic museum is pretty popular but they're not opened that late...)
      3) Should we rent a car or would public transportation be more convenient?
      4) Do US citizens need a special Visa?

      Thanks :)

    • Titanic experience

      Belfast 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

      1 day in Belfast

      Belfast Aug 14, 2012 at 12:40 AM

      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!
