Northern Ireland Transport Guide

Getting around Northern Ireland is a breeze with plenty of public transport options like buses, trains and ferries. The roads are safe to drive on too, so hire cars are also a great option to see the stunning countryside.

How to get around Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is a pretty tiny country, so you won’t have trouble getting around. Hire cars are a great option here, especially if you’d like to see more of the country – not just Belfast. Motorhomes, motorcycles and campervans are also available for hire. But if you’d rather stick to public transport, you’ll find the system here is quite efficient. There are even special discount passes for tourists or you can buy day tickets that can be used on both buses and trains. If you want to reach scenic rural areas, you can jump aboard the Rambler Bus Services. Routes cover Giant’s Causeway, Sperrin, Kilkeel, Mourne and the Ring of Gullion. There are also Ulsterbus Day Tours, which will take you to seaside resorts, shopping destinations and sporting events. If you want to cross over to any of the Irish islands, there are a bunch of ferry operators that can take you too.
