Getting to Armagh

An Airbus service operates every 30 minutes, Monday to Saturday, between Belfast International Airport and the Europa Buscentre in Belfast, and at 30 or 60 minute intervals on a Sunday. The service operates between 05:45 and 23:20. The journey from the airport to Belfast takes about 30 minutes.

The Ulsterbus express bus between Belfast Europa Buscentre and Armagh takes about 1 hour. Avoid the regular service which takes the pretty route, stops everywhere and takes a long time. It is possible to take a bus from Dublin Airport to Newry and then take a taxi to Armagh.

Northern Ireland Railways operate an express service between Belfast and Dublin, stopping at Portadown. Portadown Station is ~10 miles from Armagh. It is advisable to take a taxi from Portdown to Armagh as there are limited buses available.
