Hello...we are contemplating visiting both Ireland/Scotland in May 2020..this will be our initial journey to both of these beautiful and magnificent countries..with probably spending 8 or so days in each of these countries..we are wondering how many days we should be devoting to both Dublin/ Belfast?
From speaking to people whom have visited prior..it is suggested perhaps 4 days in each other these cities..to cover @ least some of the "A" areas...it is impossible to cover it all in this specific time frame..however hopefully this will give us an opportunity to at least get a feel for these two cities...and perhaps take sidebar visits to other areas while there..using both Dublin/ Belfast as our base....
When traveling from Dublin to Belfast..understand there is a train that travels to both of these ....also...traveling from Belfast to Glasgow...understand flying is the most direct mode of transportation vis-a-vis taking the ferry/ rail....I believe......any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated...looking forward to hearing from your at your very earliest convenience.....thank you very much in advance Steve

Hello Steve,

It's wonderful to hear that you are planning a visit in May, a lovely time to be here on the island of Ireland!

Splitting your time equally between Belfast and Dublin sounds like a super idea. From both cities, it is possible to see not only the city delights but also the areas nearby. With hop on hop off bus tours, public transport, and some organized tours, you will easily fill your itinerary.

Belfast, located on the Causeway Coastal Route has plenty of places to visit, even Derry~Londonderry is only 2 hours away so easily part of a day trip or even an overnight stop to break up your time. The hop on hop off bus in Belfast offers lots of tours within and outside of the city and definitely worth a look.

Dublin has plenty to offer too. Major attractions and all within walking distance of each other or again the hop on hop off bus offers a route around them all if this suits better. Plenty of day tours available to other areas closeby if you fancy some time outside the city.

There is indeed direct train and bus services between Dublin and Belfast, Transport for Ireland has a wonderful journey planner that you can use to find the one that suits you best. And as you mention, flights from Glasgow to Belfast International airport just outside the city may be a more preferred option indeed.

I hope this gives you lots of inspiration, and hopefully, your fellow members and some industry partners will be able to add this list! 

Speak soon, 
Martin
