When is the best time to visit Belfast?
Belfast's a vibrant city packed with great annual events. Head over in March for the Belfast Film Festival, with classic and new films on big screens. In July there's the Festival in an Afternoon, bringing you 4 hours of non-stop entertainment, as well as the Gig in the Garden run by the National Trust. In August you can watch the Carnival Parade and August Feile, Northern Ireland's largest community festival. Also in August is Belsonic Festival and then in October Belfast Restaurant Week adds extra taste to the city. In October there's also the huge Belfast Festival at Queen's which runs all the way on to November. The weather in Belfast is pretty similar to the rest of the UK, making it ideal to visit all year round, although outdoor activities of course work better in warmer months and additionally, you might want to consider planning a little more time inside during winter.
Getting to your Belfast hen party...
Belfast is a major city, so there are plenty of easy and affordable ways to arrive. If you're coming from England for your hen party, Belfast is easy to reach by aeroplane. George Best Belfast City airport is located just 2 miles from the city centre, making it easy to take a taxi or the convenient Metro 600 bus to your accommodation. Belfast International lies a little further away from the main drag, but serves far more flights from all around the world and country. Even so, it's easy to get the bus, train or taxi into the city too and it'll likely take you around 45 minutes. It's also possible to take the train via Belfast, through Wales or to drive and go by ferry. Catch the boat from Holyhead or Pembroke and enjoy a quick crossing to Ireland. If you don't fancy driving though, 'sail and rail' tickets are really popular and are the best value way to get over the water, including train travel from any point in England all the way over to Ireland with a ferry crossing. Pre-book to keep things simple on your Belfast hen do.
