I'll be spending a night in Belfast on October 15 before flying home from BIA on October 16. My original plan was to drop off the rental car at the airport the evening of the 15th, then take the shuttle into the city centre where I'm staying at the Belfast International Youth Hostel.
Now, I'm wondering if it wouldn't just be easier to keep the car with me until the 16th and return it just before my flight, eliminating the extra stop at the airport. I guess I had just assumed that driving in Belfast wouldn't be advisable, because it's a bigger city - so, what do you think? Is it relatively easy and stress-free to navigate? The BIYH does have a free car park, so I wouldn't have to worry about looking for parking...but is it like Dublin in that non-locals probably shouldn't attempt it?
Also, my flight home doesn't leave til 8:00 pm, so I'd have plenty of time to return the car....
Thanks for any advice. :)
