What to know before you fly to Belfast?
Booking your flights to Belfast is the beginning of an incredible Irish adventure. As part of the United Kingdom, Belfast is not the ‘capital’ of Northern Ireland as such, because Northern Ireland is not a country. The currency here is pounds sterling (£) like in England, Scotland and Wales.
While there’s something very Irish about being ensconced in an Irish pub in winter, most locals will tell you that summer is the best time to visit.
As a relatively small city, getting around Belfast is easy on foot, although the city is also home to a surprising amount of cab companies – Belfast taxis are everywhere.
