Travel in Northern Ireland By Car
If you are serious about making the most of your visit the car is the only option. If you are coming from Britain (or the Republic) bring your own. It might cost you a bit more on the boat than if you were flying, but it will save you money in the long run.
Car Rental Northern Ireland
If you are coming from further afield, you might want to rent a car.You will find all the big rental companies. You might want to also try some of the not so well known. I used 1car1 and found them very cost effective; or try some of the local car rental places. Their cars might be a bit older, but there is more room to bargain so you can save substantial money.
If you are coming from a country beyond the British isles, be aware that Northern Ireland drives on the left side of the road. For more info about how it is to drive in Northern (and Southern) Ireland click Driving in Ireland. (coming very soon!)
By Bus and Train
Buses and trains are operated by Translink. Local bus services are usually very good. However, if you want to go from one small town to another small town some distance away, chance are that you will first have to go into Belfast and take a second bus costing you more money and time.
There are four train services and all begin in Belfast. For more information about Translink’s bus and train services, click on the link.
