Belfast, on the way to Ulster

It was a choice that lead to turmoil in the region for years. But that time has passed! Today, as you’ll see upon arrival of your Nice Belfast flight, life here is peaceful and the locals friendly and full of good humour.

    The formalities for travelling to Belfast

    • Entry requirements: upon arrival in Belfast, you’ll be landing on the island of Ireland but entering Great Britain which, as a reminder, is not a member of the Schengen Territories. As a result, you’ll be required to present a valid passport or ID card when you arrive at customs.
    • Currency: you will of course be leaving pounds sterling on the bar as you leave your chosen Irish pub. Up to you whether you use bills printed in Northern Ireland or England. The images change but the value’s the same! Need to exchange money? Head to an Interchange counter, which you’ll find in Terminal 2 of Nice Côte d’Azur Airport.

    Your Nice-Belfast direct flight

    The Nice Belfast flight with easyJet - the only airline that operates regular flights from the French Riviera to Northern Ireland - takes off from Terminal 2.

    Passengers on the easyJet Nice Belfast flight board in the “non-Schengen” area of the terminal. As such, you should arrive at the airport 1 hour 30 minutes before departure to give yourself enough time to go through security screenings and customs. Add an additional 15 minutes should you need to go to the airline counter to check a bag or collect your ticket.

    Arriving in Belfast

    At 25 kilometres from Belfast, the airport offers several options for getting to the city centre:

    • Take the bus: the Airport Express 300 leaves every 20 minutes during the week, and every 30 minutes at the weekend. It will drop you in the city centre in around 35 minutes. Tip for easyJet travellers: you can buy your bus ticket during your flight.
    • Take a taxi: stands can be found as you exit the terminal. The trip to city centre will take around 30 minutes and cost around €30 at minimum.
    • Hire a car: if driving on the left doesn't worry you, then head for one of the 5 agencies you’ll find at the airport for a car that suits your needs and your budget. This will allow you to meander your way up the Ulster coast all the way to Giants Causeway.

What to do in
Belfast ?

It was in Belfast that the world's most famous ship was constructed: The Titanic. And the Unsinkable Ship is still today at the heart of any trip to Belfast. But the capital of Northern Ireland has much more to offer than the tragic story of this giant of the sea. Universally celebrated for its beauty, you’ll find yourself equally enticed by the high standard of living (some of the best shopping, dining, and transportation!) and lively night life. And the night isn’t the only thing that's lively! The locals here may be British, but that doesn’t make them any less Irish.

  • The top 10 things to do in Belfast

    • Visit Titanic Belfast. As big as the liner it’s named after, this ultra-modern building reveals the entire story down to the very last detail. It’s an incredible experience that can be prolonged on the waves by visiting Nomadic, the Titanic’s little brother.
    • Explore the past and the world at the Ulster Museum, an eclectic modern museum that tackles not just the history of Ireland, but natural history, ancient Egypt, and the paintings of Francis Bacon as well.
    • When in Ireland, do as the Irish! Share a pint of stout while listening to Celtic music in the warm ambiance of a Cathedral Quarter pub.
    • Stroll through the narrow passageways of the Botanic Gardens, through tropical plants and over impeccable lawns. The green lungs of the city
    • Search out the city's famous street art. Used by unions and Catholic groups for propaganda, hundreds of murals cover the walls of Belfast, turning the city into an open-air museum.
    • Peruse the stalls of local artisans and antique dealers in St George's Market, Belfast’s Victorian-era covered Market. Salivate in front of the many food stands and sample, among other things, the belly-buster, an Irish club sandwich.
    • Start the day with an Ulster fry, a Northern Ireland breakfast. On your plate you’ll find sausages, bacon, porridge, pudding, baked beans, and soda farls, which are rolls handmade using baking soda.
    • Hike the Gobbins Cliff Path, which is just half an hour from Belfast. This seaside path runs along the edges of basalt cliffs. It's renowned for its bridges and footbridges suspended between sky and sea, its rich wildlife, and breath-taking scenery.
    • Take the bus or a car to Giant’s Causeway, one of the most incredible places in all of Ireland. This volcanic landscape is paved with 40,000 interlocking basalt columns. Exceptional!
    • Take a “Game of Thrones”-themed day trip and see some of the places where the famous HBO series was filmed. Castle Ward (the Winterfell of the Starks), Inch Abbey, Tollymore Forest Park (The Haunted Forest), Ballintoy Harbour (port of the Iron Islands), and more.
