By Train from Dublin:
When the train gets in to Belfast, walk to the opposite side of the platform and take the train one stop back to Botanic Station. That is free.
From Botanic Station:
As you leave the station turn left onto Botanic Avenue. Walk until you get to a set of traffic lights. Dukes Hotel will be on your left in front of you. Pass Dukes Hotel (i.e. simply keep walking straight on). Take the next left onto College Green. Approximately 200 metres along, this street becomes Fitzroy Avenue. We're on the left at number 121. It's about 10 minutes walk only.
From Belfast International Airport:
A taxi from the airport costs around £35.
Alternately, take the airport shuttle, which leaves from the left as you exit the airport (runs every 30 minutes and cost £7) to the Europa Bus station in the city centre of Belfast.
From Europa Bus Station:
You can walk or take a taxi (but don't pay more than £4.50). If you don't want to take a taxi, walk over to Dublin Road and take bus number 7A, 7B or 7C or bus number 29A, 29B or 29C.
Get off at the top of Botanic Avenue at the old Theological College. The street running down basically across from the bus stop is called College Green for the first 50 meters then it becomes Fitzroy Avenue. We are at the top of the street on the left at Number 121.
From City Airport:
You can take the airbus to Europa Bus Centre and follow directions as above.
Alternately, a taxi from City Airport will cost around £8.50. Make sure you ask the taxi driver how much it will cost before you take it.
Do not take any of the black taxis parked outside - they will charge you £15 or more (and most of the time per person as well!)
