Belfast International Airport Car Hire
Belfast International Airport is off of the A57 and on the Nutts Corner Rd. The city centre of Belfast is located 30 minutes east along either the M2 or the A52 or to get to the airport from the north or the south take the A26.
The driving regulations for Northern Ireland are the same as those for the UK generally. Vehicles are driven on the lefthandside of the road so on roundabouts traffic has precedence coming from the right.
It is helpful to know the speed limits on the different roads before you leave and how they appear so you know what to look out for. The fastest roads are the M1-M99 motorways. For these the signs are blue while the maximum speed limit is 70m/h.
The next fastest roads are the N1-N99 carriageways, which have green signs and a speed limit of 70m/h. After these are the R001-R999 roads which consist of black writing on white backgrounds and have a maximum speed of 60m/h.
Generally the speed limit through urban areas is 30m/h. However this may drop near schools or pedestrian areas to 20m/h or rise to 40m/h on selected routes.
Also be aware that where there are road works and a temporary speed limit in place, failure to comply will result in a fixed penalty of £60 plus three penalty points or if taken to court can entail 3-6 penalty points, a fine of up to £1,000 or disqualification.
