Discover Belfast and surrounding areas by car
With a Europcar vehicle, you’ll be geared up to visit some of the best attractions in Belfast with the Titanic Museum being a particular highlight. Named as the World’s Leading Tourist Attraction in 2016, this hotspot really is a must-see with the ticket price including entry into the SS Nomadic ship on-site. The Ulster Museum is another of Northern Island’s prized attractions and then there’s Belfast City Hall surrounded by the Titanic Memorial Gardens.
Other places to pop onto your itinerary include St Anne’s Cathedral, Queen’s University – the ninth oldest university in the UK – and the Crumlin Gaol Prison, a landmark Victorian building. The Botanic Gardens are also a sight to behold, spanning over 28-acres of land, or you might fancy a trek up Cave Hill which is also home to Belfast Zoo and Belfast Castle.
As well as discovering the very best of the capital, you may choose to hop in to your car and explore the surrounding area with scenery as diverse as the Mourne Mountains, Rathlin Island and Glenariff Waterfalls. Indeed, many people often fly in and hire a car, simply to see the stunning Northern Island landscapes used as filming locations for the popular TV series Game of Thrones.
There really is so much to see and do in this part of the world, but if you’re in the area, surely you can’t leave without catching a glimpse of the spectacular Giant’s Causeway? This UNESCO World Heritage Site is renowned for its striking layered basalt columns, with the Causeway Coastal Route on which it lies offering plenty more treats along the way including sandy beaches and quaint little fishing villages.
Driving in Belfast
In Belfast and throughout the rest of Northern Island, drivers stay on the left hand side of the road and overtake on the right. This is unusual for many people visiting from Europe, so take extra care if you’re used to driving on the right.
Roads tend to be well-maintained and signposted although traffic can get rather congested in the city centre – especially during rush hour periods which can fall anywhere between 7-9 in the morning and 5-7 in the evening Monday to Friday. Head out into the countryside and you’ll perhaps find farm traffic is what causes delays but try to relax and go with the flow.
With regards to parking, there are many free car parks dotted across the city as well as those where you’ll need to pay to leave your vehicle. The Parkmobile app also makes it possible to enjoy cashless parking where you can pay for and manage your parking using your phone.
