An April weekend of organised education, drinking, eating and rugby with a plan to help make visit to Belfast helpful. This is not a travel agent and the purpose is merely to help provide travel links and encourage ideas of what to do. Enquiries are currently "Nil". For info Email to BrainsSA@aol.com and flight prices are at their lowest if booked early.

 

This trip is in organisation stage. Plans are to look at flying out on a Friday afternoon from Cardiff, Bristol & Birmingham airports returning on a Sunday. Cardiff is the most expensive to fly out from unless booked very early and as yet Flybe have not advanced Cardiff-Belfast route beyond March bookings. To show an initial stage of interest in the trip send Email to BrainsSA@aol.com

This is not a travel agent - merely a plan to suggest a trip where a link to the best flight & accommodation options appear .Travellers book the flight direct so no money is handled by the site or ever will be.  Same option with accommodation. If your able to car share to the airports or would like a car share then say in the Email. This is likely to be a drinking weekend however consideration for adult(s) and child has been taken into account.  The plan would be to arrive Friday evening/night and get to the centrally located accommodation. Visit Belfast City Centre and a night time drink starting at the Crown Liquor Bar, then next door to Robinson's Bar where they have some Titanic Memorabilia, believe it or not next door or into the back room to Fibber Magees and traditional Irish Music- its then across the road literally to the Europa Hotel and a short taxi back to  accommodation. 

 

Saturday morning will be an organised Black Taxi Tour for those interested taking them on the political Tour, onto the Titanic Quarter and Harland & Woolfe and it takes near 2 hrs with the few extra locations that are.By about 13.45hrs the plan is to get to the rugby ground and if the taxi trip drops us near the childhood home of George Best its walking distance from there as seen in he photo . 

ULSTER RUGBY, RAVENHILL STADIUM , BELFAST 

 

 

Ravenhill has a full bar and restaurant in the East Stand together with hospitality boxes. Rugby fans like to socialise so before and after the game the plan is to get a few beers at the ground getting there early as its situated extremely badly in a residential area. In fact its about as badly situated as one could believe -no access to a train, bad for a bus, a nightmare in a car almost nowhere near to eat or drink but walking distance from George Best's home and a few decent take aways. The game kicks off at 15.00hrs 


I genuinely believe that besides watching a rugby match the trip offers something a bit unique with its combination of a fairly organised trip with a guided Belfast tour.  Nothing in the organising is aimed at a profit -its a pilot scheme that is likely to only happen maybe 2 times a year.
