Getting to Belfast from Cavan

by razordance

Hey there---

I'm not too familiar with the transport in Ireland, so bear with me. I'll be getting to Cavan from Dublin via bus, but then want to get to Belfast from there. Any suggestions about the best way to get there?

Re: Getting to Belfast from Cavan

No trains in Cavan, so take the bus.

www.buseireann.ie

Takes around 4+ hours, involves changing (sometimes more than once). Some services involve going back to Dublin first, so you might want to reconsider your plans.

The best way from dublin to Belfast is by Train, although busses are cheaper. http://www.irishrail.ie/home/ you can book online and reserve a seat.

Hi
You can get an Ulsterbus or Bus Eireann to Portadown and from there take the train - see www.translink.co.uk.

Travel Tips for Belfast

Ulster Rugby

by clivedinburgh

Ulster Rugby are based at Ravenhill in Belfast and have a strong and sometimes feverent support (beating Leicester in 2004 springs to mind). They play in the Celtic League, Heiniken Cup (winners 1999) and Irish provincial games.

Tickets (£10) can be bought online or at a few sports shops in the city cente and matches usually kick off at 1930 on Fridays. There is some seating but the majority of the 10000 capacity is terraced with the freedom to walk anywhere. .

There is a large guinness tent permanently errected behind the posts that has lots of barmaids pouring guinness or harp non stop to cut down on queueing.

This is a great way to start the weekend Steady hand & large capacity fo beer

70's Chic

by clivedinburgh about Irene & Nan's

Good looking bar with a large selection of 70's clocks behind the bar.

Food is generally good and there are DJs in residence on weekends. There can be lenghty queues at times for this place so get there early. As per other Belfast bars

Taxis / Cabs

by St_Vincent

Belfast has two main taxi companies, fonaCab who can be contacted at 028 9033 3333 and Value Cabs at 028 9080 9080. Value Cabs is probably the better known, they have freephones at bus and rail stations plus some hotels and provide a 24 hour service. Both companies also provide sightseeing tours.

The Peace lines

by leics

Something else which, strangely, has become a tourist must-see.

Peace lines were created in the 1970s in an attempt to keep communities apart. They are found in Belfast, Derry and other parts of the province, but the majority are in Belfast. They were only supposed to be temporary.....three decades on, it is clear that they are not. And, three decades on, there are more of them in Belfast than there were originally.

Peace lines could simply be a white line in the road, but in most cases they are a stronger barrier...fencing, or walls. Some have gates in them, sometimes manned by police, and still sometimes closed at night. My tour bus passed through one such gate.

Visitors are encouraged to write messages on some of the Belfast peace walls now. I think they are likely to stay where for a very long time.
