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.

There are a few ideas on here,


But as there are quite a few of you, you may need 2 or 3 different places to stay, unless it's a hotel, i rekon your best bet is to go on in to Belfast where you will get cheap accommodation, lots of hostels if you prefer that, and more to do in the way of pool, darts and the rest.

The Ulsterbus airbus is £10 return to the city centre, and runs around every 15 mins.

I dont really think Antrim would be able to take a group that size possibly if you split up into groups but i doubt you would want to do that.

Belfast would be your best bet, Never used it but I think there is a bus runs from the international into belfast city.

Hotels there are your normal budget hotels, travelodge premier inn etc shouldnt cost too much.

The other option would be to head up to Portrush but I don't know how much that would cost travel wise

Park Inn Belfast is a new very centrally located hotel , with a nice hotel bar - check out their website . It would be a shame to spend time in Antrim and not come to Belfast!Belfast is a beautiful city, with plenty of great bars... Antrim is a rather small town in comparison. The bus from airport to city centre is very frequent & cheap! Morrisons is near the Park Inn Hotel. Also the Crown Bar- oldest in Belfast i think! Ypou might also like Basement Bar alongside city hall - The Apartment bar alongside the other side of city hall is worth a visit - great food!Enjoy.
