LOCATION & TRAVEL

LOCATION

Coleraine is north of the regional capital city of Belfast in Northern Ireland.  While we are sure some people will want to take the time to visit Belfast, we decided to take the opportunity to bring you to our beautiful coastline.  The University campus is on the coastal side of Coleraine, close to the seaside towns of Portrush and Portstewart.  In addition to our University accommodation, there are several options in these lovely towns.  Further details are available on the Accommodation webpage.

Travel

We’re served by a number of airports, including two in Belfast, and one in Dublin. Onward transport links include trains, cars and buses. See Translink for public transport options.

Belfast City Airport is smaller, but is close to the city centre.  It would be a short bus/taxi journey to Central train station to catch the train to Coleraine (Timetable 3 here).   Belfast International airport is slightly to the north of Belfast, so is somewhat closer to Coleraine.  There is a bus which links the airport to the nearest train station of Antrim (see train Timetable link above).

Finally Dublin airport is also a possibility.  There are good bus links to Belfast which could connect to train.

Taxis rates are also reasonable, and there are a number of pre-hire companies including:

– Value Cabs http://www.valuecabs.co.uk/

– Belfast Airport Taxies www.belfastairporttaxis.com

Car hire options are available
