Ice skating in Belfast

Don’t forget your skates when visiting Belfast as there’s plenty of places to hit the ice or watch the professionals skating in style.

Odyssey Arena [map] is a purpose build arena venue which can seat up to 10,000 people and hosts many of the most exciting events in Belfast including President Clinton’s keynote speech during his final visit to Northern Ireland as US President and regular performances from the likes of Westlife and Bryan Adams. The venue is designed as a multifunctional space offering the opportunity to host concerts, run sports events or exhibitions.

The arena has an international standard 200m hydraulic running track and its floor can be frozen to give an ice-floor which can be used for ice hockey or other sporting events. So if you want to watch some of the best professionals in the skating genre, this is the place to do so.

And the Odyssey Arena, located at Queens Quay, is the home to the Belfast Giants who play in the Sekonda Ice Hockey Superleague.

If you think you could do better than the professionals speed along to Dundonald Ice Bowl [map], Old Dundonald Road. The centre features an ice rink, 30-lane 10 pin bowling centre and large children’s soft play area, along with a variety of ancillary facilities. It's no wonder then that this is one of the top leisure attractions in Europe and has been visited by around six million customers since it opened in 1986.

The Ice Bowl's 60 x 30 metre ice rink was the first Olympic sized rink to be opened in the United Kingdom and it remains the largest rink in Ireland. The rink is open for public skating seven days a week and resident highly qualified ice skating coaches provide the opportunity for many promising young skaters to develop.

The venue has hosted ice galas, shows and competitions, which have featured numerous European, Olympic and World Champions including Torvill and Dean.
