Location information for Belfast

Introduction

Belfast is the capital city of Northern Ireland. The city has been troubled by violence between Roman Catholics and Protestants for years, which was euphemistically called ‘The Troubles’ by the British. The city has become much more peaceful after the peace treaties of the late nineties, especially in recent years Belfast has flourished. Many remains of ‘The Troubles’ are still visible and they now, funnily enough serve as tourist attractions!

Population

In the early seventies the city had 600,000 inhabitants, later on many people migrated to suburban areas. The Belfast Metropolitan Area currently has 600,000 inhabitants, but less than half (280,000 people) live in the city itself. 

Location

Belfast is located on the east coast, at the mouth of the River Lagan. The hills on the northwest of the city, supposedly have been the inspiration for the novel Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift. 

Economy

After the peace agreements of the nineties, the confidence of investors has rapidly increased, at the same time, the city government initiated large projects in order to make Belfast more attractive. The best examples of the city's improvement are Victoria Square, the area surrounding the Cathedral, the Titanic Quarters and the Waterfront Hall, as well as the beautiful renaissance style City Hall which has been thoroughly renovated.

Belfast used to be an important center for shipbuilding, the Titanic was built in the city's shipyards, the industry has now almost completely disappeared. In recent years high-tech companies increased their share in the local economy. 

Also the importance of tourism is growing, the city receives 8 million people per year and this number is still increasing.

Airports

Belfast has two airports. Belfast International Airport is located 21 kilometers to the northwest of the city (alongside the A57 highway) and handles both domestic and international flights. The smaller George Best Belfast City Airport (named after the soccer legend who died in 2005) handles flights to principally Ireland and Great Britain. This airport is located only three kilometers away from the city center.

Public Transport

The city´s public transport consists of bus lines that mainly run from the center of the city to the outskirts. The buses run frequently and they dispose over exclusive traffic lanes. The connections between the suburbs and the city center are excellent because of the star-shaped network, however, there are no direct connections between the suburban districts itself.

There are train connections with Bangor, Lisburn, Portadown, and the Irish capital city Dublin among others.

Traffic and parking

The car is the favorite means of transport of the inhabitants of Northern Ireland, such is noticeable by observing the traffic chaos of the morning and evening rush hours. There is however an overdue maintenance of the roads, but infrastructure improvements is being worked on. Outside of rush hours you can drive perfectly around the Northern Ireland capital city.

There are various parking garages in Belfast, but rates are rather high. Also be aware that the police keep close control on parking violations!

Part of the city center is exclusively accessible by local buses and pedestrians.

Hotels

Along with the touristic boom, the offer of hotels has increased considerably in recent years. There is a vast range of hotels in all price categories. Because of emerging tourism we recommend that you book your accommodation well in advance, especially during summer months and around Christmas.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by EasyTerra Car Rental? at this location
