Best Time to Go to Northern Ireland- The warm days of summer are the most common time to travel to Northern Ireland, and airfares and hotel prices rise respectively. Visit during the spring or fall shoulder time for excellent deals and fewer crowds. (One difference: St. Patrick's Day on March 17, which draws lots of people especially to Belfast for its lively show.) Winter is the reasonable time to go, but you will have to battle with gray, cold weather and little hours of daylight; beware that some buildings, historical places, and other recreational centers shut down for the off-season, so review ahead.

Communications - The dialing code for Northern Ireland is the same as in Britain, +44, with the system for the whole region 28. Public call boxes are on most downtown streets and are usually a mixture of the coin, phone card, and credit card operated. Newsagents sell prepaid phone cards. Belfast has lots of Wi-Fi hotspots, and there is a growing number of the other main towns, particularly in Derry. Internet cafés are also an attractive trait of towns, and most hotels have internet connectivity in one way or another.

Food – Eateries food items start at around 4 EUR, while a simple meal at a pub will set you back 10-15 EUR. An excellent meal, with a drink, will be upwards of 20 EUR. If you go out ahead to lunch or dinner, you will find many eateries offer “early bird” specials where you can buy real food. If you cook you food, expect to pay 50-60 EUR per week for groceries that will include pasta, vegetables, chicken, and other essential foods. For the best value food, visit the pubs! The local meal, with local people, at local prices!

Transportation – Transit is the first time in Ireland! Either you are on a minibus or train, expect free Wi-Fi, journey. Extended bus routes, such as Dublin to Belfast will cost around 17 EUR. It rate about 45-65 EUR to get to Cork from Dublin by train and takes about 3hours. It requires about 35-60 EUR to get to Galway from Dublin by train and takes about 3 hours. Buses take about the same number of time but will save you about 15 EUR. Taxis are not that too costly and, since most cities are extremely walkable, I suggest you avoid them.

Language English, Irish, and Ulster Scots are the primary languages, and, also with the Irish Government, guests should have no difficulties with English wherever you can find them. Some of the miniature, out of the way towns may speak Gaelic among themselves, but not with guests. The Northern Irish try to talk faster than usual, which can be obscure to the non-local in public arrangement when the Guinness is running.
