Belfast, the capital city of Northern Ireland in the United Kingdom, has had a long and tempestuous history, going back as far as the Bronze age to its turbulent history in the mid- to late-20th century. These days, Belfast is a bastion of culture and history worthy of any traveler's must-see list. Luckily, cheap flights to Belfast abound, allowing travelers of all budgets to get to Belfast International Airport (BFS) or Belfast City Airport (BHD) and out into this amazing city as soon as possible.
No matter when flights to Belfast arrive, there are many options for getting from BFS to the city center, just 18 miles away. There are four internationally known car rental companies operating out of BFS if you choose to rent a car; however, other options are available for those that don't wish to drive. The Airport Express 300 shuttle is an affordable way to get to Belfast, and taxis are readily available 24 hours a day out front. There are several conveniently located hotels near BFS, with a few lying practically in the shadow of the airport.
Sometimes Belfast flights arrive into Belfast City Airport, which is much smaller than BFS, containing only one runway, but just three miles from the city center. Your options for transportation from BHD include car rentals, local train service, taxis, and a shuttle bus option. While there are many options for hotels in Belfast near both airports, the ones near BHD will put you closer to the action in town.
