Belfast Car HireBelfast car-renting vacationers will understand the significance of the iconic Titanic on the life of the Belfast locals. Being the birthplace of the legendary luxury ship, the city manifests how it has risen from being sunk deep into what they feared was oblivion. Belfast is now touted as the party central of Northern Ireland. As prestigious as the Titanic was on its maiden voyage, the Belfast now stands proud with its enormous shopping malls, quaint hotels, attractive Victorian architecture, loud music and modern art.

Going around Belfast

Unless you are willing to ride rickety trains and buses; carpooling taxis or costly private taxis, public transportation in Belfast is not such a good idea. Avoid the hassle and book yourself a Belfast car rental as soon as you have mapped out your Belfast itinerary. It is fairly easy to drive a Belfast car hire as all roads lead to the city center, unless you're driving the opposite way, of course.

From the Airport

The Belfast International Airport is a hub for European and North American flights. As soon as you land on the airport, take a Belfast map and pick up your pre-booked rental car at the terminal building and head to your hotel in the city center. It is only 10 minutes away and you will have a hard time getting lost as you only need to read the signs that lead to the Belfast main district.

Places to See

The wide waters that surround the town of Belfast made a significant contribution to its history and economy. It provided income to the municipality that it was able to build Lanyon's Custom House, Queen's University of Belfast and the City Hall. These are all wonderful sights, but, step out of your reliable Belfast rent-a-car and get to know some locals around town as you will some of the most educated, cultured and friendliest people you'll ever know. Join them as they celebrate culture in the Grand Opera House for some classical music. On the next day, park your car at the club where the hippest DJ's spin the freshest Irish music. Let your Belfast car rental take you to the always-packed Belfast Bap for some gourmet Belfast meals. End the hectic day with a pint of beer at McHughs Pub, which is located in Belfast's oldest building, the Queen Square. Leave some room 'for the road' as you drive your rent-a-car back to the hotel. 

Nearby Cities 

Load up on picnic items and drive your Belfast car hire to the rural town of Limerick, where Ireland's most expansive river, Shannon, meets the Atlantic Ocean. If you have more time on your hands and fuel in your rental car's gas tank, get awestruck with old-world charm of Dublin.
