How to get from the airport to the city centre?

The airport is conveniently located just 5km away, meaning after your flight to Belfast you can be sure of a short trip to the city. You can either take a bus to the nearby train station, or if you’re happy walking about 10 minutes, you can walk there. You can grab a train every half an hour on a weekday, or at every hour on a weekend. From the train station you can practically travel to anywhere in Ireland. Other than the train, a bus is your best option. They leave from right outside the airport and the Airport Express 600 runs directly to the city centre. It operates around every 20 minutes so it is very regular. Another option is to get a taxi from outside the terminal, however this costs around £8, so is only worth it if there a few of you to chip in for the fare.
