Belfast Day Trips from Dublin

Belfast Day Trips from Dublin

North of Dublin and over the border into Northern Ireland, the fast-paced, contemporary city of Belfast is definitely on the up and up, with a vibrant cultural and gastronomic scene. Here's how to visit the Northern Ireland capital from Dublin.

Belfast City Tours

A day trip to Belfast makes exploring the city, whether independently or with a guide, fun and hassle free. Learn about the complex political and cultural history of the capital while visiting some of its major attractions, including the Irish Republican History Museum, Belfast Cathedral, the Harland and Wolff dry docks (birthplace of the Titanic), and the peace walls that stand between the city's Catholic and Protestant communities.

Belfast and Northern Ireland Combo Tours

To experience Northern Ireland beyond its bustling capital, opt for a combo tour. Depending on your interests, you might drive through the glens of Antrim, snap a photo of Dunluce Castle (the House of Greyjoy in HBO's Game of Thrones ), visit UNESCO-listed Giant's Causeway, or test your mettle on a walk across the teetering Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.

Things to Know

  • Belfast is 103 miles (166 km) northeast of Dublin.

  • Day trips to Belfast and Northern Ireland from Dublin last upwards of 10 hours, so prepare for a long day.

  • Rain is a constant on the Emerald Isle, so dress in layers and bring a rain jacket.
