Northern Ireland has an excellent and efficient transport network with express bus connections between any town and city not served by a rail link.

From Belfast Central Station there are 4 main rail routes. Travelling to the north there is a direct connection to Londonderry via Ballymena and Coleraine, to the northeast there is direct service to the port at Larne, east to Bangor and south to Dublin via Newry. For the the best values when travelling by train in Northern Ireland a rail runabout ticket. This gives you seven days of unlimited travel and tickets can be purchased at any of the main Northern Ireland railway stations.

The bus network is more extensive and from Belfast it serves a number of destinations both north and south of the border. If you do intend to travel quite a bit using Ulsterbus, and particularly if you intend travelling to the Republic, an unlimited travel bus ticket is a worthwhile purchase. There are a variety of day and half day coach tours which travel to the Glens of Antrim, the Giant’s Causeway, the Lakeland in Co. Fermanagh, the Sperrin Mountains and Mourne Mountains. These are in operation in summer months. Ask in any Ulsterbus depot for more information.
