Thankyou for any advice. I will be arriving in Dublin close to midnight mid Dec (from Australia), then travelling to Belfast by train the next afternoon (I believe from Connerlly Station) and purchasing train ticket online. My question is 'Where should I stay?" Close to the airport & then take taxi to train stn next day? or somewhere closer to Train stn? As it is quite a long haul flight I am doing I want to get 'maximum' sleep in hotel, prior to taking train to Belfast. I don't need to stay in Dublin longer on this leg (just enough to recover!) to then continue on to Belfast. Thankyou for any advice.
