Hotels

BIG has been able to secure discounts for BIG Delegates on some local Belfast hotels. Each hotel has its own rate and terms and conditions, so please do read each offer carefully. Delegates are responsible for booking directly with the hotels, not with BIG. If none of these suit you, Visit Belfast has a great website and lots of other accommodation options for BIG delegates  https://visitbelfast.com/stay/

Getting to Belfast

Getting to Belfast is easy! You can fly, take a ferry or travel by train/bus/car. All the details you need can be found here https://visitbelfast.com/plan/getting-to-belfast-travel-options/ And don't forget, the earlier you book your travel and accommodation, the cheaper it will often be! So what are you waiting for?

While you're here, why not make the most of your Belfast visit and stay a little while longer? After the BIG Event is all over, Belfast still has a lot to offer, so stick around and experience the story of the Titanic, catch a Game of Thrones sightseeing tour, visit the Peace Wall or bring the family over and take in the Botanic Gardens, Ulster Museum and and old-time candy factory. Visit Belfast has loads of ideas for things to see and do.
