hi

Check out this site of the belgian trains : www.b-rail.be

Depending on which train you take the travel time can differ. Should be about on hour.

Ryanair fly to Charleroi. Is there public transport between the airport and Ghent.

Take the local bus or taxi to Charleroi train station then a train to Brussels Midi. Change there for Gent.

The Belgian rail website is here in English

Alternatively you can take the bus to Brussels Midi and then the train to Gent. Either way you will have to go to Brussels first.

Thanks RonaldoC. Is the airport at Charleroi close to the town of Charleroi? Just looking for somewhere nice to visit if I can get a cheapo Ryanair flight. Any suggestions

Yeah it is around 10 mins by bus to the train station I think. Long time since I did it. Brussels is very nice, underrated as a short city break. Also Brugge is very popular but yo can stay in Brussels and go to Brugge for the day.
