I’m flying into Belfast – how much does it cost to get to you and what is the best route?

Please remember there are 2 airports in Belfast – Belfast International Airport (sometimes locally called Aldergrove) and Belfast City Airport recently renamed George Best Airport. Both run buses to the Europa Bus Centre in Great Victoria St. The Dublin bus stops at the Europa Bus Centre also.

Please note that taxis which sit outside the airport terminal buildings are un-metered and have been known to overcharge. Our advice is to ring a taxi from Value Cabs on 0044(0)2890 809080 on arrival at the airport (or organise this prior to arrival) and use this properly metered service. Their fleet of cars are never far from either of the 2 airports.
