Belfast on a budget

Exploring Belfast doesn’t have to cost a fortune. In fact, this energetic city can be a bargain hunter's delight – you just have to know where to look!

Getting around bustling Belfast

One of the best things about Belfast is how compact it is, so stroll around and take in the essence of the city on foot. You can go a step further (pardon the pun) by taking part in the Belfast Free Walking Tour, which connects the city's fascinating history with the people who shaped it. Cyclists should take advantage of the Belfast Bike Scheme, and, if you’ve registered once, you can rent these bikes in any city worldwide, including Dublin. Choose a three-day ticket for visitors and cycle anywhere you like – maybe the Titanic Quarter or perhaps the car-free waterside Lagan Towpath. Translink has a handy Visitor Pass for the city that offers unlimited bus and rail travel for one-to-three consecutive days within the Belfast Visitor Pass Zone. Even better, this pass grants you handy discounts at attractions including Titanic Belfast, W5 (Belfast’s Interactive Discovery Centre) and Crumlin Road Gaol.
