    Car Hire Belfast

    Compare and save on Car Hire in Belfast

    Belfast is the capital of Northern Ireland and therefore part of the United Kingdom. The city is full of history and life, beckoning for visitors to explore its fantastic sights and the breathtaking countryside that surrounds it. Belfast is the home of the Titanic and the city provides ample opportunities to learn about the construction and history of this world-famous ship. Drive around to view its famous murals which cover many of the city walls and reflect the history, politics and personality of Belfast. If you're visiting Belfast over the weekend, stop by St. George's Market for shopping and lunch, then spend the afternoon in the Ulster Museum. In the evening, take advantage of the city's booming music scene with a show at a local pub or venue. Whatever your interests, Belfast is guaranteed to please every visitor.

    If you'd like to travel out of Belfast, drive along the Giant's Causeway (also known as the Causeway Coastal Route), a UNESCO World Heritage Site covering the northeastern coast of Northern Ireland from Belfast to Londonderry. This route will take you through the Glens of Antrim, Carrickfergus Castle and the Mussenden Temple, among a number of other charming Irish villages and fascinating attractions. If you'd like, you can also drive into the Republic of Ireland from Belfast. The nation's capital of Dublin is less than two hours away and the charming university town of Galway, on the west coast of Ireland, is about 3.5 hours from Belfast. If you choose to stay in Northern Ireland, there are plentiful towns and beautiful countryside, all easily explored by car in this small country.
