Cool, yes there's the Stranraer ferry OR there's the ferry from Troon further north of Scotland.. depending where you're coming from in Scotland.

Hope this helps!

Will do. We're most likely going to take a ferry from Scotland over. We'll probably end up taking the one from Stranraer to Belfast. Unless you know of another good ferry that goes to Belfast from Northern Scotland!


LOL...if you mean from Shetland or Orkney, then you're out of luck! You can however, also go from Troon to Belfast (or to Larne), depending on where you are planning to be in Scotland at teh time of needing a boat.

Stranraer to Belfast is shortest distance-wise on the water, but at that time of year, you'll have a pretty reliable fast-boat option from either (the fast boats are often canceled in rough seas, but June should be OK I did the slow-boat between Stranraer and Belfast which was roughly 3 hours

Also, just check your car insurance if you're bringing the car from the UK mainland, and also for bringing it between Northern Ireland and the Republic, as some insurance policies don't cover

Hi guys, i stayed in Belfast a few weeks ago and loved
the place. People are freindly and good 'craic' i think
thats what they call it.. The only thing was the hostels
were poor standard..

There was one in the Queens area which looked cool
but was opened yet, i think it was called VAGABONDS BELFAST.

If you get the chance check it out beautiful building and
great location..

Go to Belfast now...

Do it, I was there for Bank Holiday weekend... I can't believe how few people were there, especially compared to England, and everyone was so nice... at least I have some faith left in the UK!

Hi Lou! I am planning a trip to Belfast in early April and for some reason can't access the starter pack. This is my first time browsing through these forums. Thank you for your help!
