GO Car & Motorcycle

Getting Around in Belfast The road and motorway system in Northern Ireland follows the same numbering system as England, Wales and Scotland, although most roads in the north do connect with roads in the south.

The most important roads are motorways and have the same designation as in mainland Britain taking Belfast as their central point.

The motorways connecting Belfast to the rest of Northern Ireland and some parts of Ireland are as follows:
  • M1 Belfast to Dungannon
  • M2 Belfast to Ballymena
  • M3 Short spur in Belfast
  • M5 Belfast to Newtonabbey
The lesser roads (or in most cases shorter roads) are designated with an “A” prefix as in mainland Britain.

The A roads connecting Belfast to the rest of Northern Ireland and Ireland are:
  • A1 Belfast to north of Dundalk
  • A3 Belfast to Armagh
  • A6 Belfast to Derry
  • A7 Belfast to Downpatrick
  • A8 Belfast to Larne
If you want to take your car in Belfast city centre you’ll find five park and ride schemes in operation through Translink, who also run the Citybus service and intercity rail service. In addition there are council-run car parks in operation as well as road meters.

But drivers set on taking their car into central Belfast should note that there is a one-way scheme that can make driving an unpleasant experience.
