BLUE LIGT CARD
A card with a massive network with discounts for Serving Personnel and Veterans. I believe that Stena Line Ferries have a substantial discount on ferries between Cairn Ryan and Belfast.
The cost of the card is £5 for 3 years.
If you go to the website below their you will find details on how to obtain a card
The hotel is located minutes from Belfast City Centre. Use the “Belfast Glider”
The service runs typically from 0530hrs until midnight, with a bus every eight minutes during peak times. Dedicated bus lanes operate from 0700hrs until 1900hrs, Monday to Saturday. Standard singles cost £2.10 and returns £3.50. After that, every other journey on the Glider/Metro network is effectively free.
Free Car Parking is available within the grounds.
I have reserved Doubles/Twins/Singles to accommodate 180. All rooms are of the highest quality.
I cannot stress the point to much to BOOK EARLY! Bedrooms are accessed by lifts that are well maintained.

SECURITY: NORTHERN IRELAND
Ladies and Gentlemen it would be remiss of me not to bring to your attention that the current threat level is set at “Severe”.
Having logged in to GOV.UK an answer to the question is it safe to visit Northern Ireland:
“Northern Ireland is extremely safe for tourists to visit. In fact, it has one of the lowest crime rates among industrialised countries. According to statistics from the U.N. International Crime Victimisation Survey, Northern Ireland has one of the lowest crime rates in Europe.”
