Somewhere near to Belfast International


We are looking to fly into Belfast Int. in early September. Anywhere between 14 and 20 men, for a stag weekend.

We are not looking for nightclubs etc. More for somewhere with a few local boozers, so we can spend the day playing, darts, pool, dominoes, cards etc.

It looks like Antrim is the closest main town, but I would like any advice you can give on this.

We're all 37+ not 20+ years old.

Any cheap accommodation ideas around the area as well would be great. We don't mind hostel rooms as well as B&B and hotels.

Have your weekend in Belfast. It is about 20 miles from the airport. Its probably easier to get to Belfast as the express bus (every 30 mins or so) goes to Belfast. Antrim is a main town in NI but it is pretty small compared to English towns. It has a population of about 20,000. I dont know what there would be in Antrim to sustain you for a weekend.

Belfast will have more things for you to do. There are bars that cater for the older crowd.

I too agree with the others, go to Belfast. Lots to do and see and many bars that you could sit in all day in Belfast that would suit you.

When you get it booked closer to the time give us a shout on the board and im sure there will be many recs for bars.

Also there is a lot of 'budget' accommodation in Belfast, travelodge, premier inn, days inn are all reasonable priced hotels.
