Belfast int airport to American consulate

It is said to be easier to get a bus from the airport to city centre but how much would a taxi for the same trip cost. we will probably be arriving in Belfast at 9 pm

This website outlines the tariffs from the airport taxis:

belfastairporttaxis.com/tariff_sheets.html

It gives a rate of £28 from the International Airport to Belfast City Centre. However from the American Consulate website, its office is actually on the Stranmillis Road, which is further out than the city centre, so you're probably talking more £32-35 I think. Plus tip of course.

I agree the bus is probably the best overall option to the city centre but you would still need to connect to another bus in the city centre to take you out to Stranmillis (the 8A if memory serves) or get a taxi from the bus station out to the Consulate.

Thankyou for reply, we will be staying in the city centre overnight so will decide which way to go when we arrive. Any info for a hotel by any chance

Oh, well that's easy enough then :-) For hotels it depends what you're looking for budget-wise, style-wise, etc. If you were to get the airport bus into the city centre, you could try the Europa, Fitzwilliam, Jury's Inn, Premier Inn Alfred Street or Ten Square, which are all very close to the bus station and also on the handier side of the city for getting to the Consulate the next day.

Metro 8A is the closest, but 8B stops just around the corner on the Malone Road, so if a 8B comes first it's best to take it rather than wait 8minutes for the next.
